The Worcester Warriors Premiership Rugby Cup game against Gloucester on Wednesday is scheduled to go ahead as planned.
It is understood that Worcester are trying to register several players on loan that would help them fulfill the game in Kingsholm.
The Warriors team was supposed to be announced at noon on Tuesday but has now been delayed.
“Premiership Rugby can confirm that tomorrow night’s Premiership Rugby Cup match between Gloucester and Worcester will take place as scheduled, but that the Worcester team’s announcement of the match has been delayed,” tournament organizers said.
The Warriors’ future remains in serious doubt, although they met last Friday’s deadline for the safety certification set by the Rugby Football Union, which allowed them to host Gallagher Premiership opponents Exeter on Sunday.
RFU said it will continue to work with Worcester owners regarding funding and potential acquisition proposals.
Debts have risen to £25m, including a £6m tax bill, while several players and staff have yet to receive their full salaries in August.
Speaking after losing to Exeter, Worcester rugby director Steve Diamond said: “I don’t know how long we can go on with this as I’ve been told the negotiations are taking place behind the scenes but I’m not a part of them.
“In the professional era, no rugby director should be forced to deal with this situation as players have not received their August salaries.
“There are limits to how many times players or staff can have goodwill without getting paid, and it’s impossible for anyone to work without internet and heat with winter just around the corner.”
The Worcester team last week called for a change in ownership of the club and expressed their anger at the “continuing broken promises” that put their future at risk.
Warriors owners Colin Goldring and Jason Whittingham have claimed to have agreed to terms of the club’s sale, but rugby officials are still not convinced.
Worcester’s next Premiership game is against Newcastle at Sixways on Saturday.
