Ballarat is not in the running to become the home of the national women's soccer side.
Football Victoria has launched a bid to establish a team centre following strong interest from a number of municipalities across the state.
However, this doesn't include the City of Ballarat.
The proposal by Football Victoria follows a feasibility study into the establishment of a facility that would host training camps and elite pathway programs for the Matildas.
It would also be home to other national and representative teams, as well as coaching and development programs.
It's planned to serve as the new administrative headquarters for the state’s governing body.
In a statement, Football Victoria said expressions of interest had been received from various local government authorities seeking to host the proposed development. They include the cities of Brimbank, Casey, Darebin, Maribyrnong, Maroondah and Greater Shepparton.
La Trobe University is also understood to have made a formal submission.
The Courier contacted the City of Ballarat about its interest in the project.
"The City of Ballarat continue discussions with Football Victoria to explore all opportunities including any potential future major soccer events," City of Ballarat community development director Neville Ivey said.
"Football Victoria has also acknowledged the City of Ballarat’s investment in soccer infrastructure that has commenced at St George Reserve in Sebastopol and other projects such as Victoria Park, Wendouree West Reserve and Buninyong."
Former Matildas coach Alen Stajcic described the Ballarat Regional Soccer Facility as world class during the team's visit to the city in 2016.
The Matildas spent close to a week in Ballarat, which included a friendly against New Zealand as part of their preparation for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
Ballarat has been host to a number of major soccer events in recent years and is linked closely to new A-League franchise Western Melbourne, which could train and potentially host matches in the city.
