In addition to deciding the schedule of the congress, in his meeting with Director of Development and Membership Association Thierry Regenass FIFA and FIFA officials, Frank van Hattum, also decided that the issue of sanctions Indonesia will not be addressed to the FIFA EXCO meeting. “I’m grateful that FIFA gives one more chance for Indonesia to hold Congress PSSI through Normalization Committee.

Agum Gumelar who went to Switzerland on Saturday (28 / 5) and the next day followed by daily executor Joko Driyono PSSI secretary general mandate from the people that brought football lovers Indonesia up to the president. The mandate is also attached to the official report of the Committee of Normalization to FIFA during the running task is to demand that Indonesia did not get sanctions from FIFA. This is the third time FIFA tolerate the failure of Indonesia to hold Congress PSSI.

Some parties believe PSSI will be sanctioned following the failure of two congress. PSSI little chance to escape from FIFA sanctions, could not be separated from the presence of representatives of FIFA that is Thierry Regenass, who also directly witnessed what happened at the congress in Jakarta. At that congress bombarded by interruptions and insults against Agum Gumelar congress participants and FIFA, are accused of blocking the nomination of General George Toisutta and Arifin Panigoro. Up to six hours took place, Congress did not produce any results and eventually closed.
For the third congress will not return failed, Agum said his return later to Indonesia, he would engage in dialogue with all circles including football with George Toisutta and Arifin Panigoro. Two people with the full support of the Group of 78 (group of 78 owners of valid votes PSSI) insisted to join the stock selection of chairman and vice chairman.

Currently, more Eddi, representatives of the Reform Movement of Indonesian National Football (GRSNI), namely Farid Rahman and Basalamah Hadi, CEO of Jakarta FC still in Zurich, Switzerland.
