South African Football Association (SAFA) acting CEO Tebogo Motlanthe says he is waiting for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to confirm when the season will resume and conclude.
The PSL is aiming to get the 2019/20 campaign back underway in late July, but they are yet to confirm specific dates, which means Motlanthe is unable to inform FIFA of the details.
"After the minister of sport confirmed that the PSL can return to training, what we are now waiting for is for the PSL to come with the dates of resumption and conclusion so that we can advise FIFA," said Motlanthe, as quoted by Sowetan.
"We need to tell FIFA that these are the dates we anticipate to restart the league in South Africa, this is the date we anticipate to finish and this is going to be our new player registration period.
"The league reserves the right to say these are our issues, but we will take the cue from them (the PSL) because they are the ones who must finish the season.
"When I have all the information with the confirmed dates that have been signed off, I will then send them to FIFA because they only communicate with member associations.
"You must remember that initially FIFA asked all the member associations to write letters to indicate when their respective leagues are likely to finish.
"I personally wrote the first letter to FIFA confirming that our season will go beyond the 30th of June. FIFA acknowledged the first letter and they said they (would) consider it.
"But they are waiting for the second letter with the dates of when the league is going to resume and finish."
