It's An Indonesian Thing

Not for the first time in recent weeks, an Indonesian league game ended in a brawl that saw the game halted on 62 minutes.

Laga were leading Persintan 1-0 in a Liga Nusantara game at the Brantas Stadium in Batu, East Java when the players from the losing side apparently started kicking off. The ref stopped the game and took the players off the pitch with the match commissioner saying he would report Persintan to the disicplinary commission.

The security officials in Batu refused to allow any more games to be played under their jurisdiction so the remaining 28 minutes were played out at Kanjuruhan Stadium in nearby Malang.

Persintan have since apologised for their players' behaviour but the club still face sanction from the PSSI for their actions.

Liga Nusantara replaces the old second and third divisions and sees clubs challenging for a place in Divisi Utama next season.

15 teams remain and spread among 4 groups with the top two in each group going on to the next stage.So far, Perserang, Laga and Persatu have qualified for the final round which will take place in Yogyakarta next month.
