OSBORNE members have ratified a switch to the Riverina league at an extraordinary general meeting on Thursday night.
The defending premier now awaits a decision by the AFL Riverina board on Tuesday night in what will be the final step whether it will join the competition.
The Hume league gave its approval for the Tigers to switch leagues at a meeting on Wednesday night.
The Tigers plan to field senior, reserve and third grade sides as well as senior netball.
Their under-14s and some junior netball will remain in the Hume league.
Tigers president Jason Gooden said club members were overwhelmingly in favour of the move.
"It was strongly supported by the members to transfer leagues," Gooden said.
"There were a few concerns by members with the juniors playing in two different competitions.
"We acknowledge the sacrifices made by our youngest footballers and netballers and their families to allow this to happen.
"We are now just formalising a letter of application to the Riverina league."

"We feel we will reinvigorate the Riverina league and it's a win-win situation."
