Minister discusses League 1 crowd permits with police chief

Jakarta (Antara) – Youth and Sports Minister Zainuddin Amari said the issuance of spectator permits for the Indonesian League 1 for 2022-2023 will be discussed with the Chief of National Police so that the competition can resume.

“The National Police has the authority to issue crowd permits and we will discuss this with the National Police Commissioner General Listyo Sigit Prabowo,” the ministry building on Friday.

The minister further said he would bring up the points of his talks with the LIB when he met with the National Police Chief.

One of them is the continuation of leagues 1, 2 and 3 for the benefit of the Indonesian national team.

The prevailing sentiment is that the competition must continue so that the best domestic players can continue to hone their skills. We will be participating in some big tournaments including the 2023 U-20 World Cup.

“The government really understands what LIB has expressed.Indonesian national team coach Shin Tae-yong wants his players to maintain their performance. We will work hard to make sure this competition can be held again,” he said.

Meanwhile, PT LIB Ferry Paulus’ managing director stressed that his government will continue to pursue the restart of Ligue 1, which has been suspended since early October 2022 following the Kanjurhan stadium stampede in Malang.

LIB has run some simulations of the continuation of Ligue 1, but so far it has not been confirmed when the competition will resume.

It is yet to be decided if the League 1 format will be home and away as usual or will return to the bubble concept implemented for the 2021-2022 season. Everything depends on the government’s decision.

“The restart of the league involves many things, including stadium security regulations, and requires a serious and rigorous investigation,” Paulus said.

According to LIB, three dates have been chosen for the restart of Ligue 1: 18 November, 25 November and 2 December 2022.

However, as time has passed, there has been a growing trend to choose December 2 as the date for the rerun of the Indonesian League 1 for 2022-2023, subject to the government allowing it.
