Foundation and Early Years (1989-2003)[edit]

The club was formed in 1989 as Putra Samarinda Football Club. Putra Samarinda competed in Galatama and later in Liga Indonesia since that competition formed in 1994/1995.[3]

Merge with Persisam (2003-2014)[edit]

Putra Samarinda experiencing financial difficulties since Galatama and Perserikatan merge into one competition. In 2003, Putra Samarinda and Persisam, Perserikatan club that funded by APBD Samarinda merged to form Persisam Putra Samarinda[4] and used Putra Samarinda license to compete in Liga Indonesia. In 2008/2009, Persisam Putra Samarinda win the Premier Division and promoted to Indonesia Super League[3]

Bali United era (2014–)[edit]

To improve their marketability and higher chance of success, Persisam Putra Samarinda declared a name change to Bali United F.C. The team was relocated from Samarinda, East Kalimantan to Gianyar, Bali. Harbiansyah Hanafiah, the main commissioner of Bali United explained that he did the name change and moved the homebase to Bali because there were no representative from Bali in the highest football tier in Indonesia.[5] Another reason was due to local fans in Samarinda prefer to support Pusamania Borneo F.C. more than Persisam.[3]


Bali United plays their home matches at Kapten I Wayan Dipta Stadium after moving their homebase from Samarinda to Bali.[6]

For the primary training ground, Bali United uses Trisakti Field in Legian.[7]

Colours and Badge[edit]

The club colors are officially red, white, and black, based on the sacred color Tridatu.[8]

Supporter and Mascot[edit]

Their supporter is called Semeton Dewata, that comes from the word Semeton meaning brother and Dewata meaning Bali's nickname, Island of Gods. Also there is Lady Dewata for female supporters. Semeton Dewata usually fill the east stand of Kapten I Wayan Dipta Stadium. There are two more big supporter groups, North Side Boys 12 that fill the north stand and Brigaz that fill the south stand.[9][10]
