GBK Stadium Off-limits for Concert until U-20 World Cup 2023: Sports Minister

3 November 2022 11:08 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaIndonesia’s Youth and Sports Minister Zainudin Amali stated that the main stadium of Gelora Bung Karno (GBK), Central Jakarta, is closed for concerts or public activities until the 2023 U-20 World Cup. The biennial international men's youth football championship contested by the under-20 national teams will be held from May 20 to June 11, 2023.

Zainudin explained that this decision was made because the stadium is among the venues approved by FIFA for the international football event. Based on the agreement, the listed stadiums must be clear from any activity six months before the event.

“It (music concert) is definitely not allowed. So all stadiums that have been registered with FIFA and approved by FIFA will begin to be renovated this November. When it’s completed, the stadium is not allowed to be used for other activities,” said the minister at Wisma Kemenpora, Jakarta, Wednesday, November 2, 2022.

He said the ministry would immediately coordinate with the State Secretariat Ministry regarding the stadium’s closure and with the Public Works and Housing (PUPR) Ministry regarding the renovations.

A similar policy also applies to five other stadiums, namely Jakabaring Palembang Stadium, Si Jalak Harupat Stadium in Bandung, Manahan Stadium in Solo, Gelora Bung Tomo Stadium in Surabaya, and Kapten I Wayan Dipta Stadium in Bali.

As widely reported, a number of music concert agendas await next year, including the South Korean girl band Blackpink. The promoter previously announced that the Born Pink concert will be held at the GBK Main Stadium on March 11-12, 2023. Ticket sales will be opened starting November 14, 2022.

Additionally, Indonesian singer Raisa was also scheduled to hold a solo concert at GBK on February 25, 2023.
