BENDIGO soccer is still waiting to find out if it will be part of the Victorian National Premier League.
A court injunction lodged by two zone representatives has delayed licence announcements for the new competition.
Several powerful Melbourne clubs are behind the injunction, Bendigo Amateur Soccer League operations manager Brock Rogers said.
It is believed the metropolitan clubs are unhappy with the VNPL's structure, which limits clubs to one junior team per division.
Rogers was hopeful of licences being announced by Monday.
Bendigo has applied for junior licences for the Football Federation Victoria-run competition, which is set to kick-off in March.
If successful, the BASL would create a new club.
The VNPL would see Bendigo's juniors play against the state's best each week.
"We just want to provide our kids with the opportunity to play at the highest level," Rogers said.
"I don't think (the injunction) will have an impact, FFV are fully supportive of the Victorian Premier League."
BASL also plans to introduce senior teams in coming years.
Premier league competitions are being rolled-out nationwide by Football Federation Australia.
FFA is aiming to provide a clear pathway from grassroots level to the A-League.
