Liga Primer Indonesia (LPI) (sometimes translated to English as Indonesian Premier League) was an Indonesian independent football leagues held in 2011. It was managed by Konsorsium Liga Premier Indonesia and PT Liga Primer Indonesia and was not recognized (initially) by the PSSI. Nineteen clubs were participated in its inaugural and only season which was running from January to May 2011. First kick-off was held on January 8, 2011 in Manahan Stadium, Solo, Central Java. Despite its original full-season schedule, the league was then stopped during the half-season break when Persebaya 1927 was currently leading the table.
On September 17, 2010, 20 Indonesian football clubs together with the National Football Indonesian Reform Movement (GRSNI) issued a declaration in Jenggala Graha, Jakarta. It was led by Arifin Panigoro (local businessman).

To achieve independence, Liga Primer Indonesia provides assistance consortium in forms of the initial capital for each participating club. With this assistance, the clubs are expected to run without funds from dependence on fund local Government Budget (APBD). The initial capital will vary between clubs according the audit results that have been held.
Additionally, the LPI embrace the principle of division of revenues in a transparent and accountable to the club participants. According to agreement with the club, LPI revenue sharing will be based on two schemes, namely schemes to league revenues (e.g.: sponsor the league, broadcasting rights, etc.) and schemes for income matches (e.g.: local sponsorship, broadcasting rights, tickets, etc.).
On 11 April 2011, the FIFA Normalisation Committee charged with running Indonesian football has officially recognized Liga Primer Indonesia. The continuation of Liga Primer Indonesia will be decide after the Indonesia FA has been formed. By this decision, the competition and all players involved are officially recognized by PSSI as well as FIFA and eligible to play in the national team.
