Persipasi Boast New Stadium
Patriot International Stadium will see its first action when Persipasi host Persija in a friendly on Saturday with the Jakarta club already making noises about using the new venue for their own home games in the future.
Bekasi is to all intents and purposes a suburb of Jakarta even though it sits, politically at least, in the province of West Java - home of Persija's bitterest foes Persib.
Recently a handful of Persija fans made the journey to Soreang when their team took on Pelita Bandung Raya...it is expected several thousand will make the much shorter journey on Saturday...let us hope similar scenes aren't repeated.
