No vote will be held, but clubs will debate the proposals favoured by the Scottish Premier League, who last week unanimously agreed to move ahead with restructuring plans by consulting with the lower-league teams.
Herald Sport understands that at least three SPL clubs are against the 12-12-18 set-up, which would involve the top two leagues splitting into an 8-8-8 structure in the final third of the season.
However, the clubs in favour have warned they will vote against any alternative proposals, which leaves the SPL at an impasse, leading to the unanimous agreement to proceed with the current plans.
Many of the details, including a merged league body, fairer revenue distribution and the likelihood of a one member, one vote set-up, are attractive to a majority of clubs in Scotland. The price for those developments is the 12-12-18 set-up, but SFL clubs are not united.
Teams in the second and third divisions, in particular, are unhappy at the prospect of this season being rendered meaningless since all but two teams would end up in the bottom tier next term. The alternative that will be proposed is a 12-12-10-10 structure, with two further clubs being invited into the professional ranks.
"This idea has grown in popularity," said one director of a second division club, who did not wish to be named. "There looks to be support for the 12-12 approach within the SPL and first division, however there are growing fears over the league of 18 and the potential for a number of meaningless games."
Many of the clubs, in both league organisations, have pledged to consult their supporters before voting on the restructuring proposals, including St Mirren, who will meet their fans tomorrow night.
Formal votes will only be held once there is a general consensus in all matters, and some in the SFL privately believe that there will not be enough time to implement change in time for next season, since a new rule book would need to be drawn up for the merged league body.
Agreement, after all, has still to be reached among the clubs, who all have vested interests.
"We are in favour of reconstruction, but not in time for next year," said the East Fife chairman Sid Collumbine. "We have nothing to play for if this goes through and our season is finished. I will not vote for anything that is fundamentally unfair."
Other clubs are more supportive, though, with the Alloa chairman Mike Mulraney saying that making the changes midway through the season is necessary to ensure that Scottish football can survive in the long-term.
"If we all continue looking after our short-term interests then, in the long-term, we will all suffer," he said. "There might be better models, but 12-12-18 will work. I do not like it [but] you have to take a little bit of pain, as long as the really big things are right."
