The biggest question facing Irish League football is not how, if at all, this season will be completed or how the next campaign will look.
The major concern for the domestic game is how it can be sustainable without fans attending matches in significant numbers.
According to the NI Executive's plan to resume Northern Irish football, behind closed doors matches can commence at stage four.
The Irish FA are doing all they can to accelerate the game's return following the Covid-19 crisis and they need the Government to play ball.
Even stage five of the recovery plan states that spectators will be able to attend live events 'on a restricted basis.'
It's unclear when fans will be allowed back into grounds in large numbers and that's a worry for clubs because they need gate receipts to help pay bills and wages.
The Northern Ireland Football League is to inform Uefa by June 30 what its plans are for the remainder of the Irish Premiership and Championship seasons and talks with clubs will intensify this week.
The Irish FA need to update Uefa on Friday with NIFL's Steering Group exploring the idea of restarting and ending the league season after two further rounds of matches, so that each club has played their rivals three times.
And the three remaining Irish Cup games could be played, with a restricted crowd.
You need to get fans back into the stadium or you run the risk of clubs going bankrupt.
Uefa has insisted all seasons must be brought to a close by Monday, August 3.
Whether there is sufficient support for the resumption of the campaign remains to be seen but Crusaders manager Stephen Baxter has concerns over the long-term financial health of the game.
"I'd love the virus to disappear so we can finish the season tomorrow but we must be realistic about what we have been through and what the future holds," said Baxter.
"League positions are irrelevant, all that matters is safety and I believe we should be protecting our league not just for now, but for the next five years.
"The restart date has to work for everyone and we don't really want shortened league campaigns.
"I'm wary of digging ourselves into a bigger hole. The clock is ticking and we don't have the finances to play football behind closed doors. You need to get fans back into the stadium or you run the risk of clubs going bankrupt.
"The welfare and safety of everyone comes first and the Government must say it is safe to play, otherwise you don't have insurance cover.
"If we have permission to play on a given date, then we need to know if it is okay to have fans.
"Players can't come off the furlough scheme and be paid as the Irish League has no money to fund the game.
"The business is only operational when fans are coming through the turnstiles.
"The decisions are vital because if we make the wrong decisions, clubs' financial futures will be at risk.
"You've got to marry the business and safety side of this together.
"We can't allow a situation in a few months where a club is pulling down the shutters and saying we can't continue. The league will fall into disarray then and it would cause chaos. Safety and finance are the two key elements for me."
In a normal year, players would now be showing off their winners medals to family and managers would be preparing for a return to training for a European test. But there are too many questions still unanswered and the added frustration for managers is that they have been unable to recruit new signings.
"It's a frustrating time and the decision being put back to June 30 was not ideal," added Baxter.
"There needed to be more clarity and a plan because too many people are waiting on decisions.
"There's a new season to plan on top of getting the grounds and game ready for a safe return.
"We need some joined up thinking and clubs need to have the finances to sustain themselves as a business.
"Managers haven't been consulted and that's frustrating."
Larne boss Tiernan Lynch has warned of the dangers of rushing players back to competitive football and Baxter agrees.
"For the last 10 years, in a week's time we would be coming back in for our pre-season training to get ready for the European game and a new season in August," he added.
"It will take a six week period for the players to be ready to play again because we have been out that long. You can't have athletes game ready after only two weeks. It's impossible.
"The players will pick up groin and hamstring injuries because the body hasn't been pushed for weeks. This is the biggest break we have ever experienced and it's not over yet.
"The players are human beings and you can't just order them to do something.
"There needs to be consultation between everyone.
"You can't just flog the guys and ask the players to play matches when they aren't ready.
"Supporters want value for money as well. They want to see players perform to the best of their ability. Only then will we have a good product on the pitch. Other leagues have ended and we don't have the money that drives the Premier League in England."
