They didn't finish high enough to qualify in any case. Haven't done for quite some time.

 In 19/20 the Phoenix finished third which would've got an AFC Champions' League playoff spot, but it instead went to Brisbane who finished fourth

OK, my mistake.
You have to remember that the AFC are doing Wellington a favour allowing participation from a non AFC member.
Allowing them into their Champions league is never going to happen.
UEFA are not inviting Boca Juniors to play in their competitions.

Have they ever invited the Boca senior team though?

Being in the AFC Champions League is over rated. You end hosting some team from Indonesia, on a cold mid week night in June. That's presuming that the format now returns to the pre Covid setup of pools H&A.

The Aussie ALM clubs struggled to get fans to turn up when hosting games. I remember living in Brisbane, and the Roar taking games to the Gold Coast, in order to try find some fans. No one was turning up.

It would be the same with the Nix. Yes there would be an initial novelty value.
But Chiangrai United won't pull a crowd on a cold wet Wednesday night in June. 

Even the top drawer Japanese, Korean & Chinese teams would struggle to draw big crowds in Welly. That's again based on pre Covid when AFC Champions League games were mostly played mid week in night time in winter. That may change going forward

Anyway unless they change the rules it's all moot

Agree, and it's not a competition that any A-League club let alone the Nix is gonna go far in atm. 

It just f*cks up your league season (look at how City nearly fell apart last season, and then did fall apart in the GF) all to go out in the group stage. None of the teams draw a crowd, and the novelty is weak. The Nix aren't really missing out lol. There's three Australians trophies that can be realistically aimed at by a fair few teams, ACL participation is merely a bonus.
