VIVA – Monday, March 14, 2022, is a historic day for PSSI. The reason is, today, the parent football federation of the country inaugurated the Medical Center or the first health center in the organization’s history.
The health center is located on the 5th floor of the GBK Arena, Senayan, Jakarta. At the inauguration, the Minister of Youth and Sports of Indonesia, Zainudin Amali, and the President Director of PPKGBK, Rakhmadi Afif Kusumo, and other PSSI ranks were also present.
“Today we inaugurated a medical center which may be in the history of (Indonesian) football only now, but this is from the Menpora also for PSSI,” said PSSI General Chair Mochamad Iriawan at a press conference at GBK Arena, Monday 14 March 2022.
“This is because of the Minister of Youth and Sports too. Thank you, Minister, this is amazing, so this room is very useful for athletes because I see the equipment is quite sophisticated. These are from Australia and Germany, which are world class,” he explained.
Furthermore, although this equipment is a state facility because it is a gift from the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Iriawan claims that the equipment in this health center is the most sophisticated in the Southeast Asian region. There are around 32 tools to support the medical needs of PSSI and athletes from other sports in need.
The presence of this health center is clearly very helpful for PSSI in carrying out treatment for Indonesian National Team players. Because, later routine checks and injuries that are not too severe can be done alone and there is no need to go to the hospital.
