Fans of Stirling Albion are trying to buy the team
A meeting which could determine the fate of Stirling Albion Football Club is due to take place later.
Councillors in Stirling will decide whether to pursue court action to recover more than £67,000 in unpaid rent and rates from the club.
The team, known as the Binos, have rented Forthbank Stadium from the council since 1993.
If members vote to pursue the action it could result in the Second Division side going into administration.
Councillors are being asked to back a recommendation that would allow the club to be given more time to repay the costs.
Stirling Council has indicated it is prepared to give the side up to the end of October to settle the issue.
The club are currently involved in negations with the local authority to have the debt written off in recompense for a decision by the council to build a new sports centre next to Forthbank.
Stirling Albion have claimed that the new Peak sports centre resulted in them losing car parking spaces and an astroturf pitch.
The dispute comes amid moves by fans of the team to buy the club from current owner Peter McKenzie.
The Stirling Albion Supporters' Trust launched their campaign in May.
However, an offer for the club was turned down by Mr McKenzie in the summer.
The issue will be discussed at a full council meeting due to take place in the city later.
