1 Indonesia Cup Treatened After Withdrawls

Surprised? Of course. I mean when it comes to organising things...get on with it.

The 1 Indonesia Cup, being organised for ISL teams by the PSSI, is under threat apparently after Barito Putera and Persiram withdrew. Persija have been barred because they still haven't paid any salaries to their players for this year.

Apparently the withdrawals mean just nine clubs are left and the organisers had been hoping for a minimum of 12.

Of course even if the 1 Indonesia Cup does go ahead there is no guarantee it will go ahead if you understand my verbal gymnastics. If a draw takes place it still needs those lovely, cuddly folks at BOPI to give their approval.

It would leave the PSSI with a bit of egg on their faces if their competition is dropped while the government's Independence Cup goes ahead. The latter has attracted interest from Divisi Utama sides; should the 1 Indonesia Cup be ditched will ISL clubs start considering their options going forward?
