Stadiums in Indonesia are not worthy of holding a League 1 match, not only Kanjuruhan. PSSI Deputy Chairman, Iwan Budianto admitted that numerous colosseums in League 1 didn’t misbehave with FIFA rules. According to him, only colosseum that are allowed to hold sanctioned matches have single seat installations.
The organizing commission (panpel) for the East Java derby between Arema FC versus Persebaya drew sharp attention. Because they vend tickets beyond the capacity of the Kanjuruhan Stadium. As a result, the National Police named Abdul Harris as the Chair of the Panpel as one of the suspects. Iwan also spoke about this.
Iwan assesses that it has commodity to do with the Kanjuruhan Stadium which doesn’t have single seat installations. According to him, if the Stadiums has a single seat installation, the commission will be suitable to record the tickets vended.
In fact, FIFA rules say single seat is a obLeaguetory installation that must be in the Stadiums. Especially for holding sanctioned matches. It aims to determine the exact capacity of a Stadiums.
