Wigan want to make sure Saturday night's historic Super League clash with Hull FC in Australia isn't a one-off.
The Wollongong match will mark the first time an English Super League fixture has been played outside Europe and is part of a 16-day tour for both sides eight months in the making.
The concept has been pursued by Wigan since their 2014 World Club Challenge visit Down Under, with the opportunity to play the second-round clash opened up by the absence of this year's Auckland Nines.
But executive officer Kris Radlinski said he hoped the team would return in coming years regardless of the calendar.
"It's been a fair project, we've learned a lot and we'd be stupid not to do something like this again," he told AAP.
""If we were to do it again we'd do it a little better but we're a pretty small team who have worked incredibly hard to get to this point."
The trip, which includes Saturday's match and a pre-season trial double-header for both clubs against South Sydney and St George Illawarra has also created its challenges for the playing groups.
Wigan's squad were forced to fly out a day after their round-one win and will arrive home four days before a clash with Warrington.
But coach Shaun Wane also insists he wants it to become a club tradition.
"If I got told today we'd be doing this for the next five years I'd be really pleased because I can't see any negatives from it at all," he said.
"The chance to come out here, it's a good life experience for our players as well. Especially our young players. We're going to give it our best shot."
The concept also has the support of former greats of both clubs, with the two sides playing off for a trophy named after Eels legends Brett Kenny and Peter Sterling.
The pair faced off in the classic 1985 Challenge Cup final, in which Kenny was named player of the match in Wigan's win.
Super League officials are hopeful Saturday's clash will increase support of the competition in Australia, something Sterling said he expected to happen.
"I would like to think the Australian fans get to see what the English game has to offer," he said.
"Because I still think it does have that little bit more attack orientation about it and that will be a breath of fresh air."
