The future of Windsor Football Club will be determined by the Football Association next week after chairman Kevin Stott presented his business plan to the leagues committee on Tuesday.
The FA will announce their decision whether or not the newly formed club will be accepted into the English football pyramid on April 12 (Tuesday).
Stott said: "I thought it was a good meeting. Both myself and Fraser Silvey attended to present our business plan for the new club.
"It was a two hour meeting which I thought was a good reflection of interest from the leagues committee.
"Probably 80% of our time there was spent on questions. The committee wanted to understand our financial status, the situation regarding the lease, and that our business model moves us away from what I like to call a, 'benefactor charity model' to a, 'social enterprise' model."
"We expect some feedback on Tuesday concerning a sanction from the FA that they are comfortable with the business plan, and some indication of what league we are likely to be in. My interpretation, based on the meeting as a whole, is that it will be at step five (Hellenic League) or six.
"If we are accepted, we'll find out on May 31 once the FA has factored in relegations, promotions, applications to join or withdrawals.
Regarding the lease for Stag Meadow Stott continued: "I think the Crown feel that they need the business plan to be approved by the FA and then hopefully we will have it."
Stott has worked tirelessly to establish Windsor FC after its predecessor Windsor & Eton was wound-up in February and wanted to thank everyone who has contributed toward the process.
He said: "It became evident to me during the presentation that we've had extraordinary help and good will to establish a senior football club in Windsor.
"I would like to thank everyone who has supported us and helped in the process, in-particular local MP Adam Afriyie, the Mayor of the Royal Borough Catherine Bursnall and Barry Davies who are all important local influences to have on our side."
A meeting of creditors of Windsor & Eton FC has also been called for April 19. Stott added: "We will discuss the appointment of Robert Keyes or otherwise as liquidator."
