Suara.com – The manager of Semen Padang, Win Bernadino, said that the continuation of the League 2 competition this season was still hanging and no unanimous decision had been reached at the meeting of the owners of League 2 clubs with PT LIB in Jakarta some time ago.
“There are no concrete results yet as we want. PT LIB explained to the club owners the options to do if this competition continues either using the home and away system or the bubble system but is constrained by the fasting month and Eid,” he explained as published by Antara, Thursday ( 26/1/2023).
Win said that the fasting month had made it impossible for the competition to be held due to the condition of the stadiums where a number of clubs had no lights so they could not hold matches at night.
“PT LIB gave the option for Liga 2 to run on February 24 and play until the month of Ramadan then take a break and return after Idul Fitri 2023. The competition must finish before July 2023 in accordance with AFC directives that competition must start in the middle of the year,” said Win.

He said that seeing this schedule, of course the match schedules are very close to one another, even matches are held once every two days.
“Of course there must be a special study so that the competition runs well so as to produce quality competition with high quality,” he said.
Meanwhile, suggestions from clubs that want this competition to be stopped and then a new competition to start in July 2023 so that clubs have a long time to prepare stadium facilities according to the desired standards, prepare teams properly and so on.
“Instead of the current conditions without any clarity, they said the old competition was whitewashed and restarted in July 2023. There is three to four months of cleaning time to prepare everything for the better,” he said.
He emphasized that Semen Padang FC certainly wants the Liga 2 competition to continue, but don’t force it with a busy schedule or be closed for a long time.
