Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairman Irvin Khoza has confirmed that Gauteng will host all top-flight league and National First Division (NFD) teams.
The two leagues have been suspended since mid-March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic which has impacted the staging of sporting events worldwide.
Khoza also revealed that the South African Football Association (Safa) must still approve their schedule for matches.
"All 32 clubs will be placed in the bubble in Gauteng," Khoza said at a press conference on Monday.
"KZN and North West were close contenders to host the bubble but the PSL found that Gauteng has the biggest advantage.
“What we have done is submitted the dates, but not announced them in public. We cannot announce them, we have prepared them and supplied them to Safa."
Safa's chief executive officer Tebogo Motlanthe confirmed that they have received a letter from the PSL indicating that they would like to resume the suspended season on Saturday, July 18.
"They have taken them to the meeting with compliance officers (this morning) and will then give an update," he added.
