Persma and Persigi

Two clubs have withdrawn from the Liga Premier. Persma Manado and Persigi Bali have decided they are not able to compete in the second tier of Indonesian football and the FA have announced they can compete in the third tier as amatuers.

Persigi had problems last season with Coach Henk Wullems not getting paid for a few months. With no omey forthcoming from the local government they decided there was little they could do but not enter the new era of football in Indonesia.

Given the relative wealth on the island of Bali it's a shame there are no private investors willing to put something together to promote the game on the region. With many European clubs tapping into Asia and Bali a world class brand it ain't rocket science. Teams, and not just European, will want to come to Bali...for now no Indonesian sides will be making the journey.
