Indonesia Soccer Championship (Indonesian: Kejuaraan Sepak Bola Indonesia), also known as Torabika Soccer Championship for sponsorship reasons, is a professional soccer competition system in Indonesia, replacing the temporarily-suspended Indonesia League.[1]



Further information: Indonesia Super League

After the ISL was stopped and the PSSI's management under La Nyalla Mattalitti was frozen by Minister for Youth and Sports Affairs Imam Nahrawi on 17 April 2015, FIFA then froze the membership of the PSSI, resulting in the suspension of the Indonesian Football Association. Tournaments were made to replace the competition, starting with the President's Cup (Indonesian: Piala Presiden) 2015 where Persib Bandung came out as champions, until Bhayangkara Cup (Indonesian: Piala Bhayangkara) closed the tournament games following the ISC 2016. The 2015–16 seasons of the Indonesia Super League (ISL) was originally going to be held starting from either 24 or 25 of October 2015 and would end on August 2016.[2] However, various constraints faced thwarted the plan, including the use of the name "Indonesia Super League" which was the property of PSSI. Finally PT Liga and Indonesian football clubs agreed not to use the "ISL" name for the upcoming long-term tournaments.[3]


PT GTS held a meeting with all of the ex-ISL and Premier Division clubs on Friday, 26 February 2016, and agreed to form ISC 2016 that would contain 18 ex-ISL clubs and 59 from the Premier Division.[4] The competition was aprroved by the government.[5] using the name Torabika Soccer Championship, ISC officially launched in Hotel Mulia in Senayan, Jakarta, on Monday, 18 April 2016.[6]
