Sriwijaya Football Club or commonly known as Sriwijaya [sriwiˈdʒaja] or SFC, is a professional football club based in Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia, which currently competes in the highest tier of Indonesian football, the Liga 1. The club was founded on 23 October 2004 after the South Sumatra government bought Persijatim Solo FC which was based in Surakarta. Their current home stadium is Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium in Jakabaring in southern section of Palembang. The club is widely known by their nickname, which is Laskar Wong Kito (Our Warriors). Sriwijaya is the first club in Indonesia which achieves double titles achievement in the same season.


The club was founded in 1976 as Persijatim Jakarta Timur with home base in East Jakarta.[2] Due to a financial crisis, the club was sold and moved to Solo, Central Java in 2002, changed their club name to Persijatim Solo FC. In 2004, South Sumatra Government bought the debt-ridden Persijatim as they want to manage a Palembang-based football team to compete in the top tier of Indonesian football system since the province had none of football clubs which competed in the top tier of Indonesian football league since the dissolvement of Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian in 1992. The government also didn't want the Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium to be abandoned after the 2004 National Games. The club then changed names to Sriwijaya FC and moved their home base to Palembang, South Sumatra.[3][4] The name Sriwijaya is thought to come from the ancient Srivijaya Empire, an empire that used to rule the land in the old days. The club is owned by PT Sriwijaya Optimis Mandiri.[5]

It is the first team to have done a double in Indonesia by winning both 2007–08 Liga Indonesia Premier Division and 2008 Piala Indonesia in the same season.[6][7] This double winner achievement was also their first titles since the foundation of the club. The years that followed saw Sriwijaya again winning the Piala Indonesia in 2009 and 2010, setting up a record as the first team to have won the Piala Indonesia three years in a row. They also managed to win the 2011-12 Indonesia Super League, as well as the 2010 and 2012 Indonesian Inter Island Cup.[8]
