Indonesian FA To Avoid FIFA Sanctions After Successful Congress
The Indonesian FA (PSSI) "may have dodged FIFA reprobation following an uncharacteristically cordial and productive extraordinary congress on Sunday that saw the body address many of the ills afflicting the domestic game," according to the JAKARTA GLOBE. The PSSI said that "the changes bring the association in compliance with FIFA mandates." The Indonesia Super League and Indonesia Premier League "will be merged under the ISL’s administrator, Liga Indonesia." Both ISL and IPL organizers "presented proposals and road maps for the leagues’ merger." PSSI members on Sunday "voted for Liga Indonesia’s proposal." With the decision, there will be 22 teams in the top-tier league next season (JAKARTA GLOBE, 3/18).
