PSSI Executive Committee (Exco) member Hasani Abdulgani explained the possibility of PSSI changing the recommendation to the police regarding the crowd permit for football into an industrial activity permit.

PSSI is often hampered by permission from the police to hold competitions and matches.

In League 1 last season, for example, PSSI failed to continue the competition because the police did not issue a crowd recommendation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the simultaneous General Election (Election) in 2020.

Hasani explained that his party would study Law Number 2 of 2002 concerning the Indonesian National Police and Government Regulation Number 60 of 2017 concerning Procedures for Licensing and Supervision of Public Crowd Activities, Other Community Activities, and Notification of Political Activities.

In addition, PSSI will also take advantage of Presidential Instruction No. 3 of 2019 concerning the Acceleration of National Football Development to convert football crowd permits into industrial activity permits.

“I think the issue of permission from the Police is something we should think about together. Don’t be like now. We have to take care of permits for League 1 and League 2 for a long period of time,” Hasani said during a discussion on Indonesian football in Jakarta, Wednesday (25/8/2021).

“We will study the police permit with the Police Law. There is also PP number 60. In fact, now there is Presidential Instruction number 3 2019. That is a gap for us to enter to ask that professional competition is no longer a mass gathering, but an industrial permit,” Hasani added.

Football has always been considered as a sport or a mere game. In fact, there is a lot of money in it.

In addition to clubs, players and sponsors, the movement of the economy in football also involves PSSI, PT Liga Indonesia Baru (LIB), supporters, and the community.

PSSI in its report on June 26, 2020 claimed that the economic loss due to the cessation of Liga 1 last season was around Rp. 3 trillion.

“I am the Adhoc Inpres Team Number 3. I will include those points. When compared to the mall. Do they get 50 thousand people every weekend,” Hasani added regarding the football industry.

Hasani said that the value of football in Indonesia is very high. Companies are willing to pay big to sponsor competitions and the Indonesian national team.

“BRI Liga 1 has a value of IDR 450 billion from sponsors. After the 2007 Asian Cup, the selling price of the Indonesian national team rose,” said Hasani.

“If we build the competition, it will become a real industry. Now it’s still not an industry. Because all the clubs that spend tens of billions do not get certainty. There is no business without certainty,” he said.
