Persita Return Closer To Home

The last few seasons haven't been easy for fans of Persita. Kicked out of their home town of Tangerang by a religious edict that banned football at the Benteng Stadium following years of disturbances between rival fans and local residents, Persita have gone nomad, playing games in Kuningan and Karawang...neither particularly convenient for the club's supporters.

Next season at least, which should begin next month, will Persita make the relatively short trip to Maulana Yusuf Stadium in Serang which they will share with Perserang.

2015 promises to be a fun campaign in the province of Banten with Cilegon United, Persita and Perserang all competing in Divisi Utama as are Villa 2000 who are based in the province.

There is talk of a new stadium for Persita but who knows when, who knows where.
