Pelita Bandung Raya (formerly Pelita Jaya FC) is an Indonesian football team based in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, founded on November 11, 1986. It was one of the most successful clubs in the Galatama era.

In the mid 90s, Pelita Jaya FC recruited several legendary World Cup footballers such as Mario Kempes, Roger Milla, Jules Onana, and Maboang Kessack. In 2011, the club completed a phenomenal transfer by signing Malaysian striker Safee Sali, who was crowned as top scorer at the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup.

In October 2012, Pelita Jaya was sold by the club owner PT Pelita Jaya Cronus to Ari Dewanto Sutedi, the owner of Bandung Raya and President Director of PT Retower Asia.[1] "Since 100 percent of Pelita Jaya's shares has been purchased by Bandung Raya, they will automatically powers the entire club for the next season, with a new name, of course," said Commissioner of PT Pelita Jaya Cronus, Andika Andrayudha Bakrie.

After the official purchase Pelita Jaya, Bandung Raya will automatically have the right to perform in the 2013 Indonesia Super League. President Retower Asia–Ari Dewanto Sutedi–as the club owner, said that they will realize their ambitions to revive the club's golden era.[2] "We want to restore the glory of Bandung Raya as it was in the past," said Ari.
