Collecting IDR 672 Billion of Debt, Target Eleven Sues PSSI in Indonesian Courts

Target Eleven also denied that PSSI had won the case at CAS.

Target Eleven denied PSSI’s claim that it won the arrears case at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The Belgian company is now suing the Indonesian football federation to the Indonesian Court (PKPU).

The emergence of the debt bill was because Target Eleven had collaborated with PSSI which oversees PT Liga Prima Indonesia Sportindo (LPIS) as the league operator in 2013. At that time, they agreed to manage two competition castes for ten years.

However, PSSI did not make payments. Target Eleven also asked the federation, which was founded in 1930, to pay a debt of €43 million or around Rp.672 billion by filing a lawsuit with CAS.

In order to avoid international penalties, Target Eleven chose to settle payments through the PKPU agreement. PSSI is expected to be able to pay off the debt.

The PKPU application from Target Eleven to PSSI has been submitted through a lawyer in Indonesia, namely the Application for Suspension of Debt Payment Obligations Number: 135/Pdt.Sus-PKPU/2022/PN Niaga Jkt.Pst.) dated June 7, 2022.

“This is to refute the news regarding the statement that PSSI won in the CAS Court, the trial at the CAS Court between PSSI and Target Eleven was postponed due to PSSI’s request for mediation with Target Eleven. It’s not that PSSI won in the CAS Court,” said Patrick M’baya Kapita’s legal team, AK Law Firm & Partner.

“The evidence related to legal facts will then be submitted to the Central Jakarta PKPU court on June 28, 2022.” they added.

It should be underlined that Target Evelen never intended to collect debts from PSSI, but instead made an offer to bring investors to build 19 stadiums in Indonesia and conduct a campaign to host the 2030 World Cup complete with the team that won the Olympic Games in London.

This step was taken by Target Evelen because he wanted to help PSSI to have many world-class stadiums so that Indonesian football would grow. However, this has not been confirmed by PSSI.

FIFA has been informed of the PKPU lawsuit, as PSSI is under court control, which could result in sanctions. If this happens, the club will not be allowed to play football, all football events or tournaments in Indonesia will be cancelled.
