Divisi Utama Semi Finals Face Low Crowds

Indonesian football moves in mysterious ways. After the nonsense between PSS and PSIS which ended 3-2 to one of the teams with all the goals being own goals, and Persis refusing to travel to Samarinda to play Pusamania we are finally coming to the end of the Divis Utama.

The dates and venue were announced for the semi finals. Persiwa, who finished bottom of their group and didn't bother travelling to one of their away games, have been rewarded with a berth in the semis and they join PSGC, who finished 3rd in their group, and Martapura, who won their group.

Pusamania are still to play Persis in the outstanding game, that will be played this Thursday with tickets priced at Rp 1,000 and R 2,000, and the winner of that game will determine who joins Martapura, PSGC and Persiwa in the semi finals.

The semis will take place at Delta Stadium in Sidoarjo on 24 November with the final being played at the same ground on 27 November.

If Persis don't make it through then expect some pretty low attendances. For those who don't know their Indonesian geography, Persiwa are from Papua, Martapura and Pusamania come from Kalimantan and PSGC come from West Java. Persis of course hail from Central Java and they face the shortest journey of all and would be probably assured of a large following.
