Indonesia's two troubled football associations have agreed to merge, ending a feud that had FIFA threatening to suspend the country from international competitions.
Youth and Sport Minister Roy Suryo says the reconciliation agreement has freed Indonesia from potential sanctions.
A meeting Sunday, held ahead of a FIFA deadline, resulted in the dissolution of the breakaway Indonesian Football Rescue Association and an agreement to reconcile the country's two topflight championships next year.
The breakaway association's leader, La Nyalla Mataliti, is the new deputy chairman of the FIFA-sanctioned All-Indonesia Football Association, or PSSI, which is now led by Djohar Arifin Husin.
The two-year feud over control of the sport by two politically connected business factions had left Indonesia with two leagues, two national teams and scandals involving players not being paid.
