Pre Season Tournaments

With the Liga Primer Indonesia due to start early January there are plans afoot to hold a pre season competition featuring the clubs involved. The idea is to divide teams into regions and play games in one base. The suggested bases are Medan, Semarang, Surabaya and Makassar.

Today comes a report that games could well be played in Jakarta. The reasoning is that it makes sense because there are four teams slated for the LPI that are based within a three hour drive of Jakarta.

So we could see Jakarta 1928 locking horns with Batavia Union, Bogor Raya and Bandung at the Lebak Bulus Stadium. Makes sense, at least logistically.

Would a security permit be released for the games though? That doesn't sem likely when you consider Jakarta 1928 are to all intents and purposes Persija, Batavia Union are Persitara without local government funding and Bandung are still Bandung whether they are linked with Persib or not.
