The Hume league board will meet with club presidents on Tuesday night to gauge whether clubs remain up for the fight to keep the season alive.
Several league's including the Tallangatta, Murray, Picola and Goulburn Valley were forced to make the tough decision to abandon their seasons last week.
And while the Hume league finals series remains on life support, an end to the lockdowns in both regional NSW and Victoria within the next fortnight could leave enough time for finals.
The league has locked in October 2 as its deadline to stage a grand final.
League vice president Phil Bouffler said the meeting would hopefully shed light on whether clubs felt a finals series remained a realistic option.
"As a board we just want to know what the clubs are thinking," Bouffler said.
"If clubs are keen to push on we can then make tentative plans based on when restrictions could be lifted.
"We can't do much more than that at the minute.
"It's just good to get all the presidents together at the same time, albeit by zoom, so then everyone knows what everybody else is thinking.
"If we talk to each president individually and then make a decision, the board can sometimes get accused of making things up.
"Dalton Wegener is going to record the meeting so there can be no ifs, buts and maybes about whatever decision is made going forward."
The NSW government last week extended its lockdown until at least September 10.
Victoria's sixth lockdown is set to be extended by at least one week amid a continued increase in COVID cases.
