The Incredible Shrinking LPI
The LPI that was once going to feature 24 teams is losing clubs on a regular basis. The latest to jump ship to the ISL are Persib. They were scheduled to play Mitra Kukar in the LPI on 26 November but first Mitra Kukar left, and the game was called off. Now Persib have followed suit and their first game in the ISL will be one week later against Persiram.
Not sure where that leaves the LPI apart from with egg on their face. The AFC and FIFA will be rolling their eyes saying not again as Indonesian football continues to wrestle with itself.
Would the last team(s) in the LPI please turn out the lights...
