The stadium is grand! It seats 43,923 spectators. I read that they may invite Juventus to come for the opening in May, 2012. Not sure if it is true. Do you know if the Indonesian national football team will use this new stadium as their home ground or remain at Senayang stadium? I was awed by Senayang stadium's capacity of 100,800 people when I saw it for the first time on TV for the SEA games. It reminded me of The Maracana in Brazil. With such magnificent stadiums, I hope the Indonesian national team will do better in world football.

@adhyz82 South East Asia produces many good players but it is the lack of a good system to grow their talent and make a career for them that forces many to just give up playing. A workable professional league is a must to make that possible. But like you say, poor management is always the cause as well as rampant corruptions to destroy any good work that has been done. Bambang Pamungkas and Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto are the Indonesian players that I know. I am sure there will be more like them in future with football being such a popular sport in your country.
