    TEMPO.CO, JakartaCity-owned developer Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) Corporate Communication Manager Melisa Sjach said football clubs from the capital up to overseas are allowed to use the training ground of the Jakarta International Stadium.

    “Two training fields of JIS will be ready for use in June,” said Melisa in a written statement on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

    On December 28, 2020, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan inaugurated the JIS training field. He hoped the stadium would not only serve as a sports facility but also a place to unite the nation.

    Melisa said the multi-event football stadium was built with the spirit of togetherness. It was hoped that the community could have a sense of responsibility for the stadium.

    “All football clubs that are based in Jakarta, or even outside Jakarta, can use JIS as their home base,” she said.

    The Jakarta International Stadium was built according to FIFA’s standards with a capacity of around 82,000 people. JIS will be equipped with a number of facilities, such as a training ground, F&B retail space, and a plaza.
