BINUS SIMPRUG AND AL JABR SECURE U16C & U12E LEAGUE TITLES
There were 34 matches played out at BIS last weekend in both the Coca-Cola League and Greenfields Cup to bring the this years program very close to final conclusion as Binus Simprug confirmed their championship status in the U16C division with an emphatic win over Highscope Jakarta. A hatrick from J. Modrick was amongst the 7 goals scored which took Binus to a share of the division winners medals alongside Lycees Francais on 19 points. Both teams remain unbeaten with 6 wins from 7 matches.
In U12E, Al Jabr overcame Bunda Mulia by 3 goals to 1 to secure the league champions spot thanks to a hatrick from Panie Gunawan. The result condemned Bunda Mulia to the runners-up medals on Gala Day but still a great achievement for a side promoted from the U12F division last season. Al Jabr maintained their 100% record with 7 wins from 7 conceding only 3 goals all season in their league campaign.
In U12B, Dragons FC beat Labas School 3-1 with yet another hatrick, this time from Federico Uncini, and in U18 BIS Red beat Victory Plus 3-1 to share top-spot alongside GMIS Tigers with both schools on on 26 points with both teams on an exactly similar league season of 8 wins and 2 draws played-out against with each other 2-2 and 1-1. Both teams contest the Greenfields Cup Final on May 31st and have been the stand-out sides all year in the senior all boys event.
Other winners this weekend in the Greenfields Cup included Ibnu Sina in their U14E/F win over Bogor Raya 2-0 with a double-strike from Saepulloh and Dragons FC in U12A/B who beat Dian Harapan 4-0 for a place in the final against JJC-A Samurai who enjoyed a comfortable 6-1 win over Mentari Jakarta in the other half of the draw.
In U14A/B, SMP Muhammadiyah beat BIS Red in their semifinal 2-0 and maintained their unbeaten record with no goals against all season. They will play Dragons FC in the final.
In U14C/D, SIS United reached their first Greenfields Cup final at the 9th attempt after overcoming Victory Plus 1-0 with a late goal from Kim Sung Jun where they will play Ibnu Sina.
There are only a handful of matches still to complete the 2014 league and cup program before Gala day on May 31st. The match ticker is now reading 961 games played and 5,178 goals scored. Watch-out for the League’s Gala Day announcements over the next few weeks and for those schools who are taking the Easter holiday break “Happy Holidays!”.

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.
