PT Liga Indonesia Baru (LIB) plans to kick-off Liga 2 2021 to be held on September 26.
President Director of PT LIB, Akhmad Hadian Lukita, said PSSI and his party proposed the 2021 Liga 2 kick-off to the government.
In his proposal, Akhmad Hadian Lukita said that Liga 2 would start at the end of September 2021.
After holding a manager meeting with Liga 2 participants on Friday (10/9/2021), PSSI and PT LIB have decided.
With some considerations PSSI and PT LIB have decided to hold Liga 2 on 26 September to 19 December 2021.
The first round is scheduled to be completed on October 22, 2021.
Then the second round is planned to be carried out on November 1 to 26.
Meanwhile, the race for the last eight will take place from December 2 to 11, 2021.
After that, the semifinals will be held on December 16, and the final will be held on December 19, 2021.
However, this explanation is still only in the plans of PSSI and PT LIB.
The man from West Java confirmed that the plan could change depending on recommendations from the government later.
“For that date, it is indeed a proposal from PSSI and PT LIB to the government,” said Akhmad Hadian Lukita to BolaSport.com, Saturday (11/9/2021).
“But we are still waiting for the acc (accept or accept),” he said.
So whether or not the Liga 2 kick-off will start on September 26, it still depends on the government.
“Starting or changing it also depends on the government later,” said Hadian.
Because PSSI and PT LIB will only propose a proposal for the kick-off of Liga 2 to the government on Monday, September 13.
After that, there will be clear certainty from the government whether the kick-off can go according to plan.
“We will propose the schedule to the government first. So we are just waiting for the recommendation,” he said.
“We have not submitted the proposal, we plan to propose it on Monday,” he said.
Meanwhile, regarding the submission of the host itself, there have been 11 League 2 clubs who have volunteered.
The 11 teams that have volunteered to host are PSMS Medan, PSPS Riau, Sriwijaya FC, RANS Cilegon FC, Martapura Dewa United FC, PSKC Cimahi, Persekat Tegal, PSCS Cilacap, Persis Solo, Kalteng Putra FC, and Persiba Balikpapan.
PSSI will determine the host selection for Liga 2 2021 and is currently still in the discussion stage.
PT LIB also ensures that in the selection of the host for the preliminary round, there will be verification first.
Hadian confirmed that pT LIB in the near future will verify the 11 clubs interested in hosting the 2021 Liga 2 Group preliminary round.
After verification, which team will be selected as the host in the preliminary round.
As for the round of eight to the final, the implementation is planned to be taken over by PSSI and PT LIB.
