Foundation and early years (1933–1940)
Before Persib was formed, football in Bandung started with the formation of Bandoeng Inlandsche Voetbal Bond (BIVB) in 1923. It was at that time a nationalist-minded association with Syamsudin as the owner which was then forwarded to the son of the Indonesian heroines Dewi Sartika, R. Atot. BIVB then disappeared and two other associations surfaced, which are Bandung Indonesian Football Association Persatuan Sepak Bola Indonesia Bandung (PSIB) and National Voetball Bond (NVB). On 14 March 1933, the two associations and several other teams, such as SIAP, Soenda, Singgalang, Diana, Sun, Ovu, RAN, HBOM, JOP, MALTA, and Merapi, agreed to merge and a new association was born named Persib with Anwar St. Pamoentjak as chairman. During the early years, they became runner-up in the 1933, 1934 and 1936 Perserikatan seasons. Ultimately became champion for the first time in the 1939 season.
Perserikatan era (1940–1994)
During the 1950s, Aang Witarsa and Anas became the first players that was called up to the Indonesia national football team. During this period, Persib became one of the elite teams in Indonesian football, by winning their second Perserikatan title in 1961. As a result, Persib was sent to compete in the Aga Khan Gold Cup. One of the star from the team was Emen "Guru" Suwarman. Persib did not gained any significant achievement until crowned as runner-up in the 1966 season.
The 1970s was the darkest time for Persib, culminating with their relegation to the First Division in the 1978–79 season. The club did a youth player development revolution by hiring Polish coach Marek Janota to lead the youth squad and Risnandar Soendoro managing the senior squad. The combination of the two teams managed to promote Persib back to the Premier Division. The team consist of now famous players such as Robby Darwis, Adeng Hudaya, Adjat Sudrajat, Suryamin, Dede Iskandar, Boyke Adam, Sobur, Sukowiyono, Giantoro, Kosasih B, Encas Tonif and Iwan Sunarya. Persib then became two-time runners-up in the 1982–83 and 1984–85 seasons.
In 1985, Ateng Wahyudi became the new chairman replacing Solihin GP. One year after, Persib again became champion in 1986 beating Perseman Manokwari 1–0. Persib managed to become champion again in 1990, beating Persebaya Surabaya 2–0. First team players from this time was Samai Setiadi, Ade Mulyono, Asep Sumantri, Dede Rosadi, Yusuf Bachtiar, Sutiono Lamso, Yana Rodiana, Sarjono, Sidik Djafar and Djadjang Nurdjaman.
Ateng Wahyudi was then replaced by Wahyu Hamijaya in 1993 as chairman of Persib. They then became champion in the last season of Perserikatan by beating PSM Makassar 2–0. As the last champion of Perserikatan and as a result of the merger of Perserikatan and Galatama which became Liga Indonesia Premier Division, Persib was allowed to keep the President Cup, the name of the Perserikatan Trophy, forever.
Modern era and recent history (1994–present)
Persib became the first champion of the newly formed Liga Indonesia Premier Division by beating Petrokimia Putra 1–0. In 1995, Persib also managed to perform until the quarter-finals of the AFC Champions League. Despite the traditions and winning the first edition of the Liga Indonesia Premier Division, Persib have endured a difficult time. They have used many local and international coaches such as Marek Andrzej Sledzianowski, Juan Antonio Paez, Arcan Iurie, Risnandar Soendoro, Indra Thohir, and Jaya Hartono, but their best finish was finishing third in the 2008–09 Indonesia Super League.
As a result of the regulations of Permendagri No. 13/2006 which was revised to Permendagri No. 59/2007, where professional clubs are no longer allowed to use government budget, 36 members as the stakeholders of Persib gave a mandate to the former Mayor of Bandung Dada Rosada to save Persib so it can still enter the competition. PT. Persib Bandung Bermartabat was then founded on 20 August 2009 as the legal basis of the club.
In 2012, Persib hired former player Djadjang Nurdjaman as their new head coach. In 2013, Persib cannot use Siliwangi Stadium for official matches, because PSSI have degraded the class-level of the stadium to be only used as a training field. Persib then used Jalak Harupat Soreang Stadium as a permanent home base. On 8 September 2014, Persib got the license as a professional club.
In 2014, after nineteen years without any major trophy, Persib managed to win the 2014 Indonesia Super League by beating Persipura Jayapura. Ferdinand Sinaga also got the Best Player award for 2014.
Colours and badge
The club colors are officially blue and white. The team's badge is similar with the seal of Bandung. The logo was used because during the early years of Perserikatan, Persib was seen as the representative of the Sundanese people

Persib was previously owned by city government and its budget was allocated from the city budget. In accordance with the regulations of Permendagri No. 13/2006 which was revised to Permendagri No. 59/2007, professional clubs are no longer allowed to use government budget.
