The end of season Gala Day, was held at British School Jakarta on Saturday 27 April 2019 to bring the 2019 competition to a close. There were 12 exciting cup finals played and many trophies and medals presented to all our League and Cup winners and runners-up. Our cup finalists entertained the crowds with some very exciting, tightly contested matches in all age groups.
We were delighted to have some special guests join the awards ceremonies; in addition to our League and Cup sponsors, we had Timnas Head Coach, Simon McMenemy, Presenter and Comedian (and also JSFL participant parent), Vincent Ryan Rompies, and Timnas Ladies Team Captain, Zahra Muzdalifah, were on hand to meet the teams and present the awards.
Throughout the day, trophies and medals were awarded to 48 teams for the Allianz League and 24 teams for the Greenfields Cup. (Details can be found on separate Bulletins). These teams came from 27 different schools. Great to see so many different schools doing so well. Congratulations to all!
Ms Arini Subianto presented the “Andre Mamuaya Sportsmanship Award” to the Jakarta Japanese School, in recognition of the respect, sportsmanship, fair play, commitment and discipline that their teams, coaches and parents showed throughout the season. They set a great example for others to follow. Thanks go to Arini and her family for their support of the JSFA.
This season we had around 4000 players representing 201 teams from 63 schools! A total of 927 matches were played at 10 different venues in less than 4 months. Well done to everyone involved in achieving this impressive feat.
A big thanks to our new League sponsor, Allianz, to our loyal Cup sponsor, Greenfields, and to Puma for supplying the match balls and flags. A special thank you also to British School Jakarta for providing us their wonderful venue for the Gala Day.
We look forward to welcoming you all back for the 2020 season.
