A DECISION on AFL Women’s expansion licences has been delayed until September.

The AFL Commission met in Geelong last week and considered the submissions of eight clubs that applied to be awarded a licence for the 2019 season and beyond.

But no resolution was reached with the commission set to get more time to consider each bid.

“All the submissions were extremely professional and considered. The eight clubs should be proud of their work,” league chief executive Gillon McLachlan said.

“We understand that every club that made a submission are passionately committed to having a team in the AFLW, and want an outcome as soon as possible.

“The 2019 expansion decision is a big investment in the future of the AFLW, and making the right decision for the clubs and the competition is an extremely important one for the growth of the women’s game — both at the elite and community level.”

AFLW star Daisy Pearce believes women’s football has the depth to sustain the league’s expansion as the league awaits a decision on new licensees.

The AFL Commission this week delayed its decision on which clubs would be awarded licences for 2019 until after its September meeting.

Essendon, Geelong, Gold Coast, Hawthorn, North Melbourne, St Kilda, Richmond and West Coast have applied for licences for 2019.

Five — the Cats, Eagles, Kangaroos, Saints and Tigers — were awarded provisional licences after missing a berth in the inaugural competition.

“From a talent perspective, you create the opportunities and people will rise to those opportunities,” Melbourne marquee star Pearce said.

“There is a great number of girls coming up underneath us that have now had the chance to develop their football in ¬really quality talent pathways and expose them to AFL environments, like the experience we had last year, and they will quickly get up to standard.”
