Persib v Persija

Sunday sees the next staging of the biggest hatred in Indonesian football as Persib Bandung host Persija Jakarta in Bandung.

As usual no away fans will travel. Their safety cannot be guaranteed. Indeed even having a Jakarta number plate on your car near the stadium on match day is inviting trouble.

The normal scenario at these games is for the visiting team coach to be attacked by rocks and players depart the stadium after the game in an armoured personal carrier. And no, I'm not joking.

This weekend, to try and ensure a smooth passage into and out of the stadium for the Persija players, representatives from both clubs supporters' clubs will meet with Bandung police.

It's worth pointing out the Persija fans will be safely tucked up back in Jakarta long before match day!


how about playing the matches without any supporters in the stadia then? that'll get them where it hurts.
they do it oftee enough, dunno why they don t for this game

especially after tonight!!!
