Persita Head East

It's a funny old league this here ISL.

Medan play in Jakarta which is two hours flying time from their home support. Persitara are the orphans of the league while Pelita Jaya thought sod this and changed their name to reflect their new stadium.

Even on Kalimantan Persiba have shifted a two hour drive south to play in Samarinda.

Now Persita, based in Tangerang, a grungy industrial 'burb west of Jakarta, have moved to the Javanese cultural heartland of Solo.

Wonder how many of their fans make the journey?
