Indonesian football league secures title sponsor

Online transport and services company Go-Jek has reached an agreement with PT Liga Indonesia, which oversees club football in the country, to title sponsor the top-tier Liga 1 competition.

The agreement will cover the 2017 season, according to the Jakarta Post newspaper.

As part of the agreement, Go-Jek will provide fans with transport to and from games using its Go-Ride and Go-Car applications. Supporters will also be able to purchase tickets through the Go-Tix service.

“We are excited to become part of Liga 1’s management, as we feel that soccer has become a widely loved sport that is able to unite all the different parts of Indonesian society,” Go-Jek chief executive Nadiem Makarim said.

“We also see economic enthusiasm among the people surrounding the tournaments, which is in line with our mission to empower Indonesia’s micro-entrepreneurs and small businesspeople.”

The Liga 1 season begins on April 15.
