Bendigo Amateur Soccer League club Eaglehawk would like to see its QEO clash with Strathdale become an annual event.
Saturday's historic first match for championship points on Bendigo's premier sporting arena was declared a resounding success by both clubs.
Now they want to lock it in as a permanent part of the BASL fixture and NAIDOC Week celebrations.
"We'll talk to the City of Greater Bendigo and the NAIDOC Week committee and we'll be attempting to lock it in for at least the next three years,'' Eaglehawk president Ben Pengelly said.
"I know it's hard work for the QEO ground staff, but it's worth it. The work they did was exceptional.
"It was fantastic to share the QEO stage with Strathdale. They're a fantastic club and they brought great enthusiasm to the game.
"We had Federal Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters saying it was a great event, City of Greater Bendigo mayor Margaret O'Rourke saying it was a great event and we had Football Federation Victoria head of community projects Nick Hatzoglou at the game and he said it was fantastic and he wanted to know what he can do to support us going forward.
"The quality of the game was quite good. It was a great showcase of the league and we need to build on it."
The first weekend in July is traditionally the general bye weekend in the Bendigo Football Netball League, so it's unlikely there will be a clash between the codes going forward.
Pengelly would like to see Eaglehawk and Strathdale own the QEO clash, much in the same way Collingwood and Essendon have Anzac Day in the AFL.
"Eaglehawk and Strathdale are the two best clubs in Bendigo and you need the QEO game to be a showcase and not a one-sided game,'' Pengelly said.
"Strathdale brings a good crowd to the game and club-to-club we get on very well with Strathdale.
"Strathdale is always going to put a good team on the ground as you saw at the weekend. It's not a game we want to lose, but we went down 3-2 at the weekend in a very good game."
Pengelly said the BASL could take it one step further and negotiate with the City of Greater Bendigo to schedule the league's grand final at the QEO for the first weekend in October.
As it stands, the league has a rotation policy for its grand final.
Last year the BASL grand final was played in Shepparton.
"It would be fantastic to play the grand final at the QEO,'' he said.
"The league needs to look at what it's doing with the grand final.
"It's the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League so the grand final should be played in Bendigo. I'm not in favour of the rotation policy.
"If the QEO was an option then the league should be jumping at it."
