After the end of the ANZ Championship in 2016 saw the competition split into New Zealand's ANZ Premiership, and Australia's Super Netball League, but some in New Zealand weren't happy with move.

Now, with the Silver Ferns' World Cup win showing they can match Australia, as well as both broadcast deals nearly concluded, Wyllie says she's optimistic of the two leagues becoming one once again.

"Anything's possible in the future," she told 1 NEWS.

"They've got a broadcast negotiation coming up in the future, so do we.

"I think anything like that should be all on the table."

Meanwhile, the Silver Ferns' success has seen a boost for the game in New Zealand already, with demand and ticket sales now exploding for the upcoming Constellation Cup between New Zealand and Australia in October.

"They're selling like hotcakes.

"It's fantastic we've been able to be on sale during the Netball World Cup. It's going to be a humdinger when that comes around in October this year.

"We're going to have a lot of Kiwis there, we're going to have this team out on court again this year against Australia, the number one team in the World.

"Anything can happen."

The Constellation Cup begins on October 13 in Christchurch, running through to October 23.
