All sporting activities were suspended last month as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent lockdown.

Speculation as to how to begin playing again has been circulating, with the prospect of playing behind closed doors previously suggested.

But in an interview with Independent Media, PSL chairman Irvin Khoza said any decision is dependant on government guidelines.

He said: "The executive will be meeting on the last Thursday of this month to discuss how we will move forward.

"Our most important challenge is how to finish the league. Fortunately we've got the guideline from FIFA that for any resumption of any activity, the government must give you a thumbs up."

He added: "We haven’t discussed scenarios with our members. The most important thing (at our last meeting) was to deal with the issues of how we use our voice in helping the government to flatten the curve.

"That's why in our meeting we said we were hoping to finish by the 30th of June. But FIFA have come with new guidelines that the leagues can be extended until the end of July. As it stands our desire is to finish the season."
