The drawn-out saga between Rassie Erasmus and World Rugby is set to come to a head at the end of October.
Erasmus and SA Rugby were formally charged by the world governing body after the Springbok director of rugby produced an hour-long video criticising match officials following the British and Irish Lions' 22-17 win over South Africa in the first test of the series.
In a statement released on Thursday, World Rugby confirmed that the misconduct hearings will take place over the weekend of 30-31 October.
It will be chaired by Independent Judicial Panel Chairman Christopher Quinlan QC and the panel will include Nigel Hampton QC and Judge Mike Mika, both of New Zealand.
