Liga 1 2022/2023 was dream that PERSIS has been waiting for to play in the highest division of
Indonesian football. The 14-year wait has finally paid off after Laskar Sambernyawa won Liga 2
and secured a promotion ticket to Liga 1 last season. Meanwhile, PERSIS also wants to
improve the professional aspect in every area so we are more ready to develop following the
modern football industry.
To become more professional, PERSIS need to gain more experience and knowledge from
someone who has been in this industry for a long time. Represented by Kaesang Pangarep as
CEO, PERSIS shared experiences and learnt valuable lessons from the Directors of the United
Arab Emirates' highest division league, the UAE Pro League.
Visiting a top professional football league that has the best 8th ranked competition and one of
the most well-managed competition in Asia, of course PERSIS gains a lot of valuable
knowledge and experience. Kaesang was warmly welcomed by the UAE Pro League Directors
on Tuesday (28/6) at the UAE Pro League Headquarters, Abu Dhabi. The meeting which was
represented by Obaid Al-Kaabi also discussed the program in the league, managerial of
competition, organization, marketing and also media aspects.
Not only this, Kaesang also discussed licensing and other matters related to football
development in the future. The club was also introduced to the experience of the UAE Pro
League in creating a clear match schedule, based on value aspects and for a long-term needs.
Kaesang commented on this visit. He believes that PERSIS can learn a lot from the UAE Pro League, “I've learned a lot about club's managerial and how to adapt in modern football industry from the experienced one. I hope this meeting can make PERSIS as a better professional team in the future.”
This meeting was attended by all representatives from departments in the UAE Pro League,
then ended by exchanging placards between PERSIS represented by Kaesang and the UAE
Pro League. Hopefully after this meeting, the management can apply it well to PERSIS and
become a role model for clubs in Indonesia.
