SuperSport United face a challenge in fielding defender Michael Boxall in the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates at Peter Mokaba Stadium on May 28.
This comes after Boxall received a New Zealand call-up for the Oceania Nations Cup, which starts on the same day in Papua New Guinea.
The All Whites, who are currently preparing in Brisbane, Australia, will kick off their campaign against Fiji.
"Michael Boxall, we will release him as late as possible," says Matsatsantsa coach Stuart Baxter.
"I don’t know what the rules and regulations are at the moment about when we should release him.
"We will release him the latest as possible. Obviously we want to keep him for the final."
The Oceania Nations Cup champions will qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.
