Persita Name Change

Persita Tangerang will be playing their Indonesia Super League games in Kuningan next season and to celebrate the fact they are looking to change their name to Persita Kuningan!

One reason given for the name change is the hope to attract local sponsors which kind of sums up the small scale thinking that permeates football here. The ISL is shown nation wide, why not try and attract big brands who have a nation wide recognition instead of targeting some local warung that flogs a decent sate?

Kuningan does already have a team but Persik play in the semi professional Division One.

It remains to be seen how many Persita fans will make the long trek to West Java for their games.
