Persija Jakarta is an Indonesian football club from Jakarta. It is one of Indonesia's most successful clubs and the most popular sports club in the city. Persija Jakarta was founded on November 28, 1928, with the embryo called Voetbalbond Indonesische Jacatra (VIJ). VIJ is one who co-founded the club Football Association All of Indonesia (PSSI) with the participation of representatives VIJ, Mr. Soekardi in the formation of Societeit PSSI Hadiprojo Yogyakarta, Saturday, April 19, 1930.

Persija Jakarta is Indonesia's most successful football team, having won 10 trophies including a joint-record 9 Perserikatan titles and 1 Liga Indonesia titles. Persija was the only club who has never been relegated from the highest level of football Indonesia from their first appearance in 1930.[1]


In the time of the Dutch East Indies, the name of Persija is VIJ (Voetbalbond Indonesische Jacatra). VIJ was one who co-founded the club Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) with the participation of representatives from VIJ, Mr. Soekardi in the establishment of PSSI in Societeit Hadiprojo Yogyakarta, Saturday, April 19, 1930. Post-Republic of Indonesia back to the Unitary State, VIJ renamed to Persija (Football Association of Indonesia, Jakarta). At that time, NIVU (Nederlandsch Indisch Voetbal Unie) as a rival organization PSSI still exist. On the other side, VBO (Voetbalbond Batavia en Omstreken) as bond (league) match Persija also still exist. Irrespective from the destiny or not, along with the sovereign state of Indonesia, NIVU will inevitably have to disband. The atmosphere eventually spread to their members, such as VBO. In the middle 1951, VBO held a meeting to dissolve itself (liquidation) and recommends itself to joined Persija. In the development, VBO joined Persija. In the triangular tournament friendlies, the combined players who are members of the Indonesian nation Persija "new" is confronted with Netherlands and Chinese. Here's the result: Persija (Indonesia) vs Netherlands 3-3 (June 29, 1951), Chinese vs Netherlands 4-3 (June 30, 1951), and Persija (Indonesia) vs Chinese 3-2 (July 1, 1951). All games took place in the field BVC Merdeka Selatan, Jakarta.[2]

MH Thamrin is one of the national heroes who cares about VIJ who now become Persija Jakarta, because he also likes football and he was born in Jakarta. He also take care of various things about Persija including the stadium. Reportedly Stadion VIJ in Petojo, Central Jakarta was also constructed by MH Thamrin using his own money.[3]


Persija's play home matches at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium and Lebak Bulus Stadium. Persija's new home stadium, Jakarta BMW Stadium is still under construction which is scheduled to finish in 2015.
