Persija Won't Be Alone In Solo

Not for the first time in living memory Persija Jakarta are being forced to play home games far from their home town. This time it's their next two home games which have been moved to Manahan Stadium in Solo. The reason? Apparently there are large demonstrations or marches being scheduled in Jakarta to commemorate May Day.

The two affected games are against Persela on 2/5 and Arema on 6/5.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Neither game is on 1/5. What do you want, logic? Of course it makes no sense. It ain't supposed to make sense.

Despite the distance to Solo, perhaps 12 hours by economy train, we can still expect several thousand Persija fans to travel and given the good relationships between the fans of Persija, Arema and Persela as well as hosts Solo there may well be a few extra rupiah flowing into the local economy.
