Gloucester City have applied to the FA and National League to play at their new ground next season, Gloucestershire Live report.
The club are hoping to return home midway through the 2019-20 campaign having played outside the city since their old Meadow Park ground was flooded in 2007 and they will continue to groundshare with Evesham United at the Jubilee Stadium until then.
