Persita Move Again?

Indonesia Super League clubs are supposed to register which stadium they wish to use for next season although I don't see why Persija bother. As usual, they have said they will use Bung Karno but you can be sure they will be forced to play many games outside of the capital city.

Persita have made a couple of interesting choices. After a religious instruction, called a fatwa, prohibited the use of Benteng Stadium in Tangerang, fans of both Persita and Persikota were always fighting each other and local residents near the stadium, Persita played last season in Kuningan, West Java. A bloody long journey.

For 2014 they have nominated Krakatau Stadium in Cilegon and Singaperbangsa in Karawang. One is to the west of Tangerang, the other to the east.

Pro Duta have used Bandung, Sleman and Medan as their home bases in their short history. Next season could they see them on the road again having chosen Harapan Bangsa Stadium in Banda Aceh and Singaperbangsa in Karawang.

Both Persib and Pelita Bandung Raya have chosen Siliwangi Stadium and Jalak Harupat although to be fair, given PBR's support, they could just as easily have chosen the stadium in Purwakarta for their home games; they are unlikely to make inroads into Persib's following.

Meanwhile, PSM will play their home games in Pare Pare. So good, they named it twice!
