PT Liga Indonesia Baru (LIB) immediately moved after the National Police issued a license to organize Liga 1 and Liga 2 for the 2021-2022 season.
LIB Operations Director, Sudjarno, and LIB Government Relations, Johny Pol Latupeirissa, visited the Metro Jaya Police and Central Jakarta Police, Tuesday (24/8/2021).
At Polda Metro Jaya, PT LIB was met by the Deputy Chief of Police, Brigadier General Pol. Hendro Pandowo to discuss the implementation of Liga 1 2021-2022 series I.
“We inform you a lot about Liga 1 2021-2022. In principle, there will be many matches in Series 1 which will be held in the Polda Metro Jaya area,” said Soedjarno.
On that occasion, PT LIB also stated its commitment that league operators would comply with the directions given by the government regarding health protocols.
Sudjarno said that the implementation of the health protocol in the latest Liga 1 season would be more stringent than the one that was implemented in the 2021 Menpora Cup.
“We also inform other technical matters about the process which is slightly different from the last Menpora Cup,” said Sudjarno, quoted from the PT LIB website.
“Like the PCR test on H-1 for all those involved in the match, all of them must have been vaccinated twice, to the point that they are required to apply the PeduliLindung application to facilitate monitoring of everyone’s movement,” he added.
The explanations given by PT LIB were welcomed positively by Hendro Pandowo. He said that Polda Metro Jaya would fully support the implementation of Liga 1 2021-2022.
After the meeting with the Deputy Chief of Police of Metro Jaya, PT LIB continued to coordinate with the Central Jakarta Metro Police.
There, the directors of PT LIB discussed securing the opening party of the 2021-2022 Liga 1 which will be held at the Bung Karno Main Stadium.
The opening match of Bali United versus Persik Kediri will be held on Friday (27/8/2021) at 19.00 WIB.
Central Jakarta Police Chief, Kombes Pol. Hengki Haryadi, who met the directors of PT LIB, expressed his readiness to secure the opening match.
“We will secure the opening match,” said Kombes Pol. Hengki Haryadi.
