Portsmouth's future as a Football League club will be decided by April 19, a High Court judge said on Thursday, reports Sporting Life.
The League One side have been in administration for over a year and will be expelled from the League if they are not taken over before next season.
Thursday's hearing was supposed to confirm a date for the case for administrators PKF to attempt to gain permission to sell the club's Fratton Park ground, which is controlled by former owner Balram Chainrai's company Portpin.
The court has not confirmed a date but it is hoped that could be announced within the next few days.
Fans' group the Pompey Supporters Trust's bid to buy the stricken club hinges on being able to purchase the ground for around £2.65million.
