WONTHAGGI has requested a move out of the Gippsland League and into the West Gippsland Football-Netball Competition from next season.
The club has cited travel times and distance as the main factor in its decision, and is currently believed to be in stage two of its official application.
Should Wonthaggi be successful in switching to the WGFNC, it will become the league's 13th club and play against sides such as Philip Island, Warragul Industrials and Nar Nar Goon.
In late June, the WGFNC made it clear it would not be open to accepting any new clubs for 2020, with all club presidents agreeing to co-sign this in writing.
