Dundalk FC will have to produce further evidence over the next 48 hours before they will be awarded a license to compete in the Airtricity League.
The Lilywhites have been awarded a conditional Premier Division license for the 2013 League of Ireland season, after the Independent Club Licensing Committee requested additional information regarding the transfer of ownership of the club.
If the Committee are not happy with the information provided Waterford United will take Dundalk’s place in the Airtricity League Premier Division but Dundalk have described the licensing request as a “formality”.
“Over the past six months the process of transferring the club’s license to the new company in control of Dundalk FC has been on-going. This has been a very complicated process due to the uniqueness of this situation,” a statement from Dundalk read.
"Dundalk Football Club has received a request to provide one further piece of information to the licensing committee. This is a formality and will be concluded in the next 24-48 hours.
“We’d like to thank all Dundalk fans for their continued support!"
All the other clubs in the Premier Division have been granted licenses.
