TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan invited the public to join the grand launching of the Jakarta International Stadium (JIS) in July 2022. The event was previously planned to be the peak agenda of the 495th Jakarta anniversary or Jakarta Hajatan on June 25, 2022.
“There will be many events, including the launching of JIS,” said Anies in Jakarta, Thursday, June 23, 2022.
He confirmed that the launching event would mark the opening of the newly-constructed stadium in Ancol, North Jakarta. “People are allowed to come,” he added.
The former education and culture minister did not detail the reason for the postponement. Yet he emphasized that people could visit the international stadium.
President Director of Jakarta-owned developer JakPro, Widi Amansto also confirmed on Tuesday, June 21, that the stadium’s grand launching would be delayed to the next month. He was also tight-lipped about the reasons.
When asked whether the postponement is triggered by the public request and petition for the change of the current name, Jakarta International Stadium, into MH Thamrin stadium, Widi shortly answered, “later.”
