AFF warns PSSI after ticket chaos

Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) chairman Nurdin Halid admitted Sunday that he had received a warning from the Asean Football Federation (AFF) that Jakarta will not hold the second leg of the AFF Cup finals should the ticket sale chaos continue.

“If security could not control the crowd to calmly buy tickets, Jakarta will not hold the second leg of AFF Cup finals,” he said, as quoted by TVOne.

Impatient hooligans broke into the Gelora Bung Karno stadium following uncertainty over ticket sales, destroying fences and other stadium belongings. One man was reportedly injured.

Nurdin blamed hooligans for failing to behave properly when they lined up to buy tickets.

He said he had asked the National Police and the City Police to help PSSI secure the ticket sales process as well as the AFF Cup final’s second game.
