2015 Season Ends in Gala Day Bonanza and Handover
The 2015 came to a fitting end after nearly 5 months of football and 1,000 games at The British School on Saturday. Spread out over 3 sessions and in front of 2,500 players and parents the League’s 10th Anniversary season concluded in bright sunshine in what was an outdoor event for the first time in 6 years.
League Chairman for those 10 years, Brian Dallamore, closed the event in front of the U16/U18 and Open Age Girls winners and runners-up by announcing the handing-over of his position and that of the current league committee to a new team headed by Kirk Evans who will take the JSFA forwards into 2016 and beyond. He acknowledged the incredible contribution throughout this long running league success of Marc Sprakel, Irene Thesman and Yenny Sutanto who had done so much for the league and who will also be standing down this year.
Gala Day traditions were upheld with the Greenfields Cup Finals played throughout the day interspaced with the Coca-Cola League and Greenfields Cup trophy and medal ceremonies. It was another big performance from the leagues bigger schools particularly in the A/B divisions where both British School Jakarta and Dragons FC from JIS figured strongly. SMP/SMA Muhamadiyah won both the U16 and U18 Cup competitions. National High and Mentari International School figured strongly in the lower divisional competitions. The Sportsmanship Awards went to Sekolah Global Jaya in U8, Global Mandiri in U10, ACG in the All Girls, Global Sevilla Puri in U12, Ibnu Sina in U14 and Tunas Muda in U16/18.

The standout winners in the All Girls league and cup competitions went to the British School Open Age Girls who went all season unbeaten and took both the cup and league titles with Deutsche School being runners-up in both occasions. It was a record year for the All Girls teams who fielded 26 teams split into 4 divisions in U10’s/U13’s and 2 in Open Age. It was also a record year for the league as a whole with 232 teams fielded from 58 schools plus 5 charity teams appearing in the playing season making-up 29 playing divisions. In total, well over 4,000 children appeared during the season split into 13 venues operated by the league spread around the city.
The outgoing Committee wish to thank everyone for their tremendous support over the last 10 years. It has been a hell of a ride starting with 5 schools and 8 teams in the 2005 pilot season to where we are today. We wish everyone the best of luck for the future and in particular to the new committee who have a lot to do and a lot of enjoyment to be had.

inter-schools Association Football in the Jakarta area to children of all ages. The JSFA (Jakarta Schools Football Association) 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 226 teams from 65 schools fielding a total of 3,500 students over 4 playing months between January and April every year.
The 2015 Season will see the League organize and manage close to 1200 matches for students between the ages of 7 to 18 years old operating over 12 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 cash 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 is spent on venues, trophies, referees, Gala Day events and media.
The Leagues finances are managed exclusively by the British School Jakarta Foundation which acts as the leagues 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 competitions targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British 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.
