Canberra's interminable wait for an A-League Men's team could finally be drawing to an end with the league hinting a decision on expansion is on its way.
And given they want every club to have a team in both the men's and women's leagues, that points to Canberra's bid finally getting the green light.
Not that we haven't heard that before, only to be let down time and time again.
The A-League opened their Instagram account up to questions, with one fan asking when the next round of expansions would be.
For the men, that will be next year.
Canberra's been previously reassured they would be the next cab off the A-League Men's rank, with the bid's team continuing to work in the background to ensure that remained the case.
"More teams=more minutes=more football. At least three more teams are joining A-League Women by 2023. More to say on ... A-League [Men] next year," the reply read.

It comes off the back of comments Australian Professional Leagues managing director Danny Townsend made regarding expansion last week.
He said the plan was for every club to have a men's and women's team, pointing to the potential of an ACT men's team joining Canberra United on the national stage.
In good news for the A-League Women, Townsend also pointed to the draw expanding to a full home-and-away fixture with the long-term goal of matching the number of games with the men.
"We've got the roadmap to expand the league so that every A-Leagues club has a men's and women's team," he told Triple M's Real Football Show.
"We want to get to the point where the A-League Women are playing home-and-away at a minimum and then going on to play a length of season that mirrors the men. That's absolutely got to be the goal."
Townsend was asked whether Canberra would be the next expansion team and he cagily said it was one of the possibilities.
They're comments that will have Canberra soccer fans wary of getting their hopes too high given the way they've been treated in the past.
The fact that it was Football Australia and not the APL in charge of previous expansions won't help ease that.
They did everything asked of them only to miss out to the Western Sydney Wanderers for the 2012-13 season.
Then Canberra missed out again when a third team in both Melbourne and Sydney was brought in over the past two seasons, with reassurances they would be next.
"There's a lot of merit in that approach, but we've gone through a bunch of different strategic projects the last six months since we've had control and expansion is a big one," Townsend said.
"And it's one that will take a lot of work. The way you go about expansion is really important.
"We've got a strategic view to how we want to expand the game and Canberra is definitely on the list of geographies to consider because for us this is about bringing our game into a geography that is going to grow the commercial value of the sport.
"That is not about who is going to write us the biggest cheque, which was possibly the previous way of going about expansion.
"This is about who is going to bring more value to the game, who is going to bring more fans into our sport and how they are going to be as business partners."
