Foreign Footballers in Indonesia

Foreign Footballers in Indonesia

a preliminary list (subject to verification)

I am wondering who plays football in Indonesia. And so, here is a preliminary list of foreign players playing for teams in the Indonesian Super League.Each team is allowed to have four overseas players: at least one of these players must come from Asia. Players from Africa, who haven’t played previously in the Indonesian Super League need to have represented their national team. Cameroon, Brazil and Argentina are the home countries of many of the foreign players. Akindes (2013) has written that many of the Cameroonian players come to Indonesia based on recommendations, rather than through professional agents. He also writes that African players find the climate and food of Indonesia to be relatively agreeable. Some of the foreign players come to Indonesia without first having gained a work visa. Mark Wilson has also written of the experience of African players in the Divisi Utama (the second tier league) in The Jakarta Post.
