Menpora Ask Indonesia U-22 National Team Play at the Great Stadium
The Minister of Youth and Sports, Imam Nahrawi, asked Sea Games 2017 organizers to provide a larger stadium for the U-22 national team match. This is related to the absence of supporters of Indonesia.
“If we give Indonesia a 50,000-capacity stadium, hopefully this will be heard by the organizers,” said Imam at the Presidential Palace Complex, Jakarta, Wednesday (8/23/2017).
As is known, citizens who work in Malaysia quite a lot. Noted there are four million citizens living in the neighbor country.
There are complaints from Indonesian supporters when the U-22 national team faced Vietnam in the group phase. They are not allowed to buy tickets even when the sales counter is open.
Concerning this request, Imam Nahrawi has received a good signal from the leadership of the Indonesian contingent in Malaysia. Indonesia’s proposal is being considered.
“I got the progress considered for the next game,” he said.
As the runner-up of Group B, Indonesia U-22 national team will face Malaysia at Shah Alam Stadium on Saturday (8/26/2017). The stadium can accommodate 80 thousand people.
