The Indonesian Football League Board (BLI) and cigarette company PT HM Sampoerna have signed a memorandum of understanding to hold the Copa Dji Sam Soe Indonesia 2006. BLI chairman Nirwan Dermawan Bakrie and Sampoerna managing director Angky Camaro signed the MOU, witnessed by Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) acting chairman Agusman Effendi, the Jakarta Post recorded.

"Copa Dji Sam Soe 2005 was a successful competition participated in by teams from all divisions. We are pleased to be holding it for a second year," Nirwan said.

However, the team was banned from the competition by the Asian Football Confederation due to late registration.
