South Africa Football Association (SAFA) will later on Friday confirm a high-profile friendly against Nigeria for March 29, africanFootball.com reports.
Earlier this week officials denied that the match was in the offing.
Officials told africanFootball.com that the match will either be played in Free State or Johannesburg.
Nigeria had planned a friendly with West African perennial rivals Ghana for March 29 in London, but world football governing body FIFA called it off because it was against the rule for a team to play international friendlies within two continents that will involve more than five hours flying time between the continents.
Nigeria will now play Bolivia on March 26 in Uyo before flying out to South Africa for another friendly with Bafana Bafana three days later.
Last October, Bafana upstaged the Super Eagles in Uyo to qualify for the 2015 African Nations Cup after the South Africans were forced to a 2-2 draw.
