2008 Incident[edit]

On 12 November 2008 in their match away to Persibom at Gelora Ambang Stadium, Kotamobagu, PSIR players attacked and injured the referee, and later also the replacement referee. The match ended in 1-0 victory for Persibom. PSIR were suspended for two years following the attacks, but on appeal on 1 December 2008 the suspension was lifted,[1] and their next match was rescheduled. The day after the incident PSIR players Yongki Rantung, Tadis Suryanto and Stevie Kusoi were banned from football for life.[2] Five days later Stanley Mamuaya was also banned from football for life, while other players Stanley Katuuk, Gery Mandagi, and M Orah were banned for two years.[3]

The incident occurred when referee Muzair Usman awarded a penalty for Persibom. Angered by the decision, PSIR players punched and kicked the referee until he went down. Not satisfied, the players trampled him, to the point where he had to be rushed to hospital with bruises. After the referee was replaced by reserve referee Jusman R.A, a similar incident almost happened. Jusman was chased and stripped naked in the field after showing a red card to a PSIR player who had made a bad challenge.[1] Muzair Usman, Jusman R.A and match inspector Sukarno Wahid were eventually rewarded by the PSSI, as they were considered to have promoted football's image in Indonesia with their justice, bravery and loyalty.[4]


PSIR Rembang is nicknamed "Dampo Awang Army" because there is an anchor property Dampo Awang in Rembang. PSIR Rembang is also nicknamed "Deer" because Kijang is the fauna of the identity Rembang Regency.
