Chester City have entered administration following the club's relegation from the Football League.
The Blues have been considering going into administration since losing their League Two status earlier this month.
Several players have already left the club as a result of relegation to the Conference, while owner Stephen Vaughan has been looking for new investment.
However, the club have now headed into administration and are set to start next season in the Blue Square Premier with at least a 10-point deduction.
A club statement read: "Chester City Football Club have, after discussions with debenture Stephen Vaughan, decided to enter voluntary administration in order to safeguard the future of the club."
In recent weeks, Southampton, Stockport County and Darlington have all suffered points deductions as a result of administration.
