This comes after a number of experienced referees failed their pre-season tests in Johannesburg this week.
Out of the 83 match officials that took part in the Fifa-sanctioned fitness test at Boksburg Stadium this week, 59 made the grade with 21 being unsuccessful.
The high number of failures was attributed to adverse weather conditions, but Safa has acknowledged the outcome of the Fifa sanctioned tests as being credible and in accordance with the Fifa rules and regulations.
Victor Hlongwane and Daniel Volgraaf will be given time to recover and will be retested at a time still to be determined, while Jerome Damon is suffering from a hamstring injury will be re-tested once he has finished his rehabilitation.
Victor Gomez, who did not do the test on Sunday because of flu, had his test on Wednesday, July 18, and passed, while Lwandile Mfiki managed to pass a re-test on Thursday, July 19.
Buyile Gqubule and Charl Theron both failed the re-test. While Gqubule will get another chance for a re-test, Theron has indicated his desire to retire.
Harry Lekitlane and Robert Sithole have reached the mandatory retirement age, and have indicated that they will offer their services to Safa as match commissioners/assessors. They have since completed a Fifa match commissioner's course and they now qualify for operational duty for the PSL and NFD.
Sithole will blow the whistle for the last time today in the Mbombela Cup, which features Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, Sivutsa Stars and Mbabane Swallows. Lekitlane's farewell match will be decided at a later stage.
"Despite the setback we have suffered, I believe we have enough cover for the season so there is really no reason to worry at all," Safa's chairman of referees Alpha Mchunu says.
"The few seniors that have failed will be back on the panel once they have been re-tested and passed.
"Therefore, in terms of the officials who participated in Sunday's fitness test, those results are standing and binding. The unsuccessful candidates will however, get a second chance which, in accordance of the CAF and Fifa rules, will be in six weeks' time.
"The rules state that any official who fails in the first attempt should be given a six-week recovery period before going through a second attempt."
Of the 21 match officials that failed, 12 are new on the panel.
"These are our new and young referees," Mchunu adds "We have seen how much talent they possess, hence our decision to give them another chance to be tested. And I still believe if it wasn't for the weather conditions on the day, they would have done extremely well as they are very good.
"We will manage the situation, it is not a disaster as has been implied in some quarters. At the same time, we will also try and give assistance to those who failed in the lead up to the next fitness test scheduled for Tanzania in six weeks time.
"Most of those young referees who passed Sunday's fitness test are well equipped, very promising and ready to take up the big test thrown at them."
