Indonesia Soccer Championship Clubs

Ok so we are a couple of weeks shy of the kick off of the Indonesia Soccer Championship which is almost similar to the Indonesia Super League but not quite. The ISC doesn't have any promotion or relegation. Just to muddy waters there seems to be ongoing talks hoping to hold the ISL. Whether it would replace the ISC or not is as you may imagine unclear.

The top flight of the ISC is known as ISC A and apparently kicks off 16 April with Persipura hosting Sriwijaya. These are teams slated to be in ISC A and most of them are pretty familiar.

Semen Padang, Sriwijaya, Persib, Persija, Surabaya United, Persela, Arema, Madura United, Persiba, Mitra Kukar, PSM, Persipura, Gresik United, Bali United, Persiram, Barito Putera, Perseru, Pusamania Borneo.

For those who have been hibernating the last two years; Surabaya United are the Persebaya the Bonek are boycotting (I stand to be corrected once and for all on that particular soap opera); Madura United used to be Pelita Bekasi Raya nee Pelita Bandung Raya nee Pelita Jaya; Persiram is the latest identity for the military side PS TNI; Bali United used to be Persisam; Pusamania bought out Perseba Super Bangkalan.

I hope that clears that up...

Now, ISC B or what used to be Divisi Utama and most of the names should be familiar. Some notable absences including Persitara, Deltras, Persikab, Persikota, PSAP, PSSB, Persma, Persimin among them. Persires are now based in Sukoharjo are previous spells in Bali, Kuningan and Cirebon. The erstwhile owner of Persepam MU seems to have sold them and now owns Madura United. As you were with most of the rest I believe with four of the six groups centred on Java. The last group involves some pretty serious travel for the clubs concerned in a part of the country where the infrastructure ain't the best
