The IFA Championship Executive Committee met on Friday to consider correspondence received from Newry City FC.
The Committee determined it was appropriate to postpone the match between Newry City and Loughgall due to be played on Saturday.
The club is the subject of a winding up petition due to be heard in the High Court on 6 September.
The Committee said the decision would allow the club to clarify their position.
This follows the departure of manager Pat McGibbon last month, who stepped down due to "personal reasons".
Another club facing financial trouble is Glentoran, but manager Eddie Patterson was only focused on their opening match against Donegal Celtic this weekend.
"The big test starts on Saturday when we come up against premier competition, competitive games and that's what this game is all about," he said ahead of the game.
"We will leave it and just see how things go but I just ask the fans to show a bit of patience, see what we are doing and let us build those foundations for the years to come, so to speak and see where it takes us."
On Friday the club announced the signings of Ryan Newberry, Mark Clarke, Marcus Kane, Jay Magee, Stephen Gordon and Kevin Bradley to go along with the signing of Stephen McAlorum.
Skipper Colin Nixon, defender Jason Hill and goalkeeper Aaron Hogg also renewed their deals with the club.
Meanwhile Linfield will start the defence of their title in an away game against Ballymena Utd on Saturday.
