There have been mixed reactions to Penshurst considering a move to the Warrnambool and District League.
East Warrnambool president Allan Miller said he would welcome the addition of the team.
"It would be ideal to get rid of that bye," Miller said.
"At one stage we had two weeks off - the break was good but you enter the competition to play football and netball."
Miller said another team would strengthen the future of the league.
Kolora-Noorat president Paul O'Sullivan also supported the addition of another club.
"I think it would only make the league stronger," he said.
Old Collegians football operations manager Mark Toleman said he too would welcome a move that would see the end of a bye.
"The season can become a bit disjointed and cumbersome with two byes plus the VCFL bye," he said.
"It can affect the cash flow and performance of clubs."
However, he said the league would need to consider the opinions of clubs such as Nirranda and Timboon, which would have lengthy travel times to play at Penshurst.
