BANDUNG, WEST JAVA (ANTARA) – Minister of Youth and Sports Zainuddin Amari said his administration had been working with officials from the Ministry of Public Works and Housing on the use of Gelora Bandung Lautan Api Stadium (GBLA) in Persib. announced that it had been adjusted.
He said football clubs can use the stadium as long as it doesn’t interfere with the Ministry of Public Works and Housing preparations for the U20 World Cup.
GBLA Stadium was chosen as one of the practice grounds for the teams competing in this event.
“We’ll also see what the Department of Public Works and Housing is preparing. As long as that doesn’t interfere with preparations, go ahead,” Amari said.
He made the statement after attending the match between Persib and PSS at GBLA Stadium in Bandung, West Java on Sunday.
He also said that even though the GBLA stadium is only used for training, he came directly to the stadium to see the state of the stadium when it was full of spectators.
The minister admitted that he understood what he needed because the football club had trouble finding a stadium to serve as its headquarters.
He also saw the preparations of the Ministry of Civil Engineering and Housing.
“The executive order assigns responsibilities. The Department of Public Works and Public Housing is responsible for infrastructure, the Department of Youth and Sports is responsible for support, and the National Football Association is responsible for performance. As hosts, we do our best,” he said.
Director of PT Persib Bandung Bermartabat Teddy Tjahjono said Persib’s match against PSS could be the team’s last game at the GBLA stadium. The team may use a different stadium for their next home match.
