Piala Menpora 2021 Fixtures

After an absent of 12 months Indonesian football returns tomorrow with the  pre-season Piala Menpora. 

There have been that many competitions like this over the years I won’t bore you with them all, suffice to say the last time one was held under this name was 2013 when eight teams entered including Central Coast Mariners, Loyola Meralco Sparks (Philippines) and Malaysia U23. Hosts Arema won beating CCM in the final thanks to two penalties from Keith Kayamba Gumbs and they kick off the tournament this year against Persikabo 1973 at the newly renovated Manahan Stadium.

The draw was ‘fixed’ so the Big 4 of Arema, Persebaya, Persib and Persija were kept apart just in case any rival fans saw an excuse for having a pre-season, non socially distanced tear-up for old times sake. All games are to be played behind closed doors but that hasn’t been a problem in the past!

One notable absence from the draw is Persipura. They took offence to something from the organisers so withdrew apparently! 

Not sure if the games will be streamed for overseas or not. Keep an eye on my Twitter account for updates!
