Coventry City football club is to hold talks with the Football Association because of delays to the opening of its new stadium.
The team was due to move into their £113 million Ricoh Arena before the new season gets under way, but the project is now 19 days behind schedule.
The revised opening date of August 20 for the 32,000-capacity stadium raises questions about when the Sky Blues will play their first home game.
The season usually starts in the first week of August.
In a joint statement with Coventry City Council and Arena Coventry Ltd, which will run the facility, the club said: "CCFC is unable to comment on the implications of the Ricoh Arena opening on August 20 until it has held discussions with the Football Association.
"The League schedule will not be available until the third week in June. Normally if the first game is at home, the following two games are away. The football club is now liaising with the FA to clarify the situation."
The delay is the latest potential setback to hit the stadium. Last month, Japanese IT giants Ricoh stepped in to replace luxury car maker Jaguar as the arena's main sponsor.
The car manufacturer pulled out in December last year because of the "rapid deterioration" in its business situation.
Just months earlier, the company announced plans to end car manufacturing at its Browns Lane plant in Coventry.
But Richard Pike, project manager leader at construction firm Laing O'Rourke, said: "We've worked hard to keep delays to a minimum."
