Girls Open Age Taking Shape
Dragons Blue established themselves firmly at the top of the All Girls Open Age division last Saturday following a 3-1 win over Dragons White. With 4 wins from 4 they are the team to beat with the big encounter with BIS Red due next week. BIS Red and Deutsche International School also remain unbeaten and the next 2 weekends will decide the top places this year.
Sinar Mas World Academy enjoyed their first win of the season with a 2-1 victory over RICS who succumbed to their second straight 2-1 defeat in consecutive weeks and remain at the foot of the table. With STB-ACS and Binus Simprug contesting a goalless draw DIS and BIS have to pick-up points from their remaining fixtures to get back in contention.
In All Girls U12, JGS Dragons moved-up to joint leaders with Pucung on 19 points following a 3-0 win over Sekolah Victory Plus. Puncung hung-on to a 1-0 win in a close encounter with SIS-KG and finish their league campaign with 6 victories 1 draw and 1 defeat. BIS FC remain unbeaten in mid table having only played 4 games and need to get their remaining matches in to take the title.
In the U18 competition, Ghandi Memorial School got back to their winning way with a convincing victory over Sinar Mas World Academy and look assured of a joint champions position at the very least come the end of the season.
At the other end of the age-groups Al Fath finished their league season on 16 points from 7 games with a 4-1 win over Keen Kids. They remain a point ahead of PIE Dragons but will lose top spot if PIE beat Al Azhar next weekend at STB.
Game of the day was however the U14 encounter between JJC and Dragons which finished in a 1-1 draw and left both team mid table. SMP Muhammadiyh and BIS Red are the only unbeaten sides in the division and will contest the medals on Gala Day in this division.
Next weekend is critical for the league with 75 matches scheduled for Saturday and a further and 45 on Sunday. If we can get all these games in nearly half the teams will have all but completed their league season despite what has been the worst weather we have experienced since the first season in 2005. Let’s hope that we get at least on week of sunshine which we haven’t enjoyed since early January.
Check your matches on Wednesday to make sure all teams know their games!

About 2014 League
The Jakarta Schools Football League was founded in 1995 by a small group of British International School
Bintaro Jaya Sextor IX
Jln Raya Jombang Cileduk
Contact / Venue Coordinator
0811836172 students with the sole aim to organize and deliver quality inter-schools association football in the Jakarta area. The JSFA or ‘Coca-Cola’ League as it has become known due to the continued involvement of Coca-Cola as lead sponsor from that time, has grown from 6 schools and 12 teams in 1995 to what it is today as perhaps one of the largest schools football competitions in the world with 210 teams from 65 schools fielding a total of 3,500 students over 4 playing months between January and April every year.
The 2014 Season will see the League organize and manage close to 1000 matches for students between the ages of 7 to 18 years old operating over 11 different venues, mostly host schools, as detailed in the venues section of this website.
The League is totally non-profit making and raises its operating cost requirements from its major supporting sponsors Coca-Cola and Greenfields Milk, who support The Greenfields Challenge Cup competition in which all teams in the various age categories participate plus annual subscription fees. All monies raised by the League are spent on venues, trophies, referees, Gala Day events and media.
The Leagues finances are managed exclusively within the British International School Foundation that is the legal entity within which the JSFA is housed and who control all receipts and payments on the League’s behalf.
FOOTBALL FOR LIFE
The ‘Football for Life’ campaign seeks to deliver an outreach programme to children in need in Jakarta. The League has always coordinated and encouraged charity teams to participate in the League targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British International School Community Action Service programme and participating Students.
The Football For Life initiative however is an extension of this important role and seeks to embrace a wider cross section of children in need in Jakarta through financial support and the active participation by JSFA members in assisting worthy child related causes. The ‘FFL’ campaign raises independent funds via various fund raising initiatives to enable this to happen.
Full details are available under the ‘FFL’ banner on this site or by contacting any member of the main committee.
The JSFA main committee is always looking for additional members to participate in what is a positive and exciting experience for all concerned. Should you wish to support the objective of the League, please feel free to contact us at any time.
