Home Games Relocated

One of the great bane's of Indonesian football is that some teams face big problems find a place to play their home games. Persija are a case in point. They will play Persiwa and Persipura in Yogyakarta while their normal home base, the Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, is being renovated.

Meanwhile the West Java Derby between Pelita Jaya and Persib will be played at the Jalak Harapat Stadium in Soreang making it in effect a Persib home game. West Java is basically a Persib fortress and while Pelita Jaya have managed to get some support for their games in Karawang should Persib come to town their support would over run the stadium.

The picture shows Persija support at a 'home' game played in Solo in 2010.

Good to hear that Bung Karno Stadium being renovated. Will try visit it when in Jakarta and see what's new there...
