Windsor Football Club will contest their inaugural season in the Combined Counties Premier Division it was announced by the Football Association on Friday.
As expected, the FA positioned the newly formed club at step five of the English football pyramid and the decision was welcomed by Founding Director Kevin Stott.
Stott said: "I am pleased we are in at step five. It is what we expected and I believe it is the right step for us to join at.
"I would have been concerned if it was lower and, at the moment, we cannot sustain a team at step four so it's perfect for us."
He continued: "Most teams in the Combined Counties League are relatively close to south London and we get to see old faces again like Egham, Dorking and Camberley.
"I'm chuffed from my own perspective as living in west Sussex I can get to away games quicker!"
Despite season 2011-12 being the very first in Windsor FC's history Stott believes the club has a good chance of instant success.
"I think it's a league we have a good chance of doing really well in. Ideally, we'll be puting together a team that can go out and win it. I would love the new club to come in with a bang!"
He added: "There doesn't appear to be a Kings Lynn or a St Neots, i.e. a situation where a team has a disproportionate budget to the league they are in.
"We will always respect our opposition but I want us to adopt a fluent football philosophy so we are known for playing intelligent and creative football."
The Football League's most recent addition AFC Wimbledon began their competitive history in the Combined Counties League, winning the Premier Division in season 2003-04.
