Sleman - Sports City

After a bunch of clowns chose Singapore to be their second best city in the world for sports I would like to put forward Sleman.

Sleman is small town just outside Yogyakarta in Indonesia. It boasts a spectacular San Siro type stadium and a football team currently in the Indonesia Premier League.

It's close to a number of tourist attractions, most notably Borobudur, one of the world's great temples, and nearby is a railway station and an airport.

The team are PSS and just about avoided relegation last season to the badlands of Division One but a look at their attendances suggest a passion on the terraces that surely puts them on a par with Singapore, if not Melbourne. An average attendance of 7,206 isn't such a bad return is it?
