PSS Sleman Supporters Get Real Amid Deadly Football Attacks

It is not easy being a fan of Indonesian football. The game is seen by the country as a magnet for trouble while politicians view the mostly male, mostly young fan base as potential vote banks.
 
Supporting your local team means, in the eyes of many, being a thug.
 
That, of course, isn’t true. Having grown up in England in the late 1970s I can assure you not every skinhead was a racist and not every football fan was a hooligan despite the headlines to the contrary.
 
Football has been in the news recently in Indonesia and as ever it has been for the wrong reason. Three fans died after a brawl at Gelora Bung Karno stadium after a game between rivals Persija Jakarta and Persib Bandung.
 
A week later a fan died after clashes between Persebaya Surabaya fans and police.
 
Four people dead in one week attending football matches.
 
There are now three police forces who are banning football matches under their jurisdiction; add Tangerang where an Islamic organization declared the game haram, or forbidden, after years of outbreaks of violence between the fans of the two local teams.
 
Amid all this horror it is difficult to find any good news stories. Perhaps people don’t want to read about the positives. Perhaps anything that breaks the mould, anything that sheds football fans in a different light is unwelcome. Far easier to tarnish all fans with the same brush.
 
Sleman isn’t a big town, more a suburb of Yogyakarta. Their local team, PSS, has never really set Indonesian football alight during their short history and they currently ply their trade in the second tier Divisi Utama of the ‘official’ league.
 
I first came across their support about five years ago. Not many away teams brought large numbers of fans to Jakarta to play Persija. PSS did. About 700 made the long journey that day and although they were well thumped, their fans never stopped supporting their team throughout the 90 minutes.
 
More recently I saw them play Persipasi in Ciracas. A drifting, mid-table team, they still brought seven bus loads of supporters for the game plus the local PSS fans, students or people who had migrated to the big city for work.
 
Some 300 fans again kept up a noise throughout the game, comfortably out singing the home support. And at the end, when things got nasty on the field, a handful of stewards prevented more excitable elements of the support from getting involved.
 
It was a good, mature performance all round from the fans and one which the team could learn much from.
 
Unfortunately the PSS support easily gets overlooked when people die at football matches.
 
One section of their support, the Brigata Curva Sud (BCS), know a thing or two about fans dying. They recently held a charity night to raise funds for the relative of three of their members who had dies in recent months.
 
They auctioned shirts signed by players as well as other football memorabilia and over the course of the evening raised close on Rp 25 million for the relatives.
 
Not a story that received much, if any, prominence in the national media but, perhaps, that is why it needs telling.

    Ane Mantan Supporter Persikota, Memang Benar Adanya Di Sini Sepakbola Tim Persikota Dan Persita Di Stadion Benteng Di Fatwa HARAM Oleh MUI Setempat Dan Telah Bekerjasama Dengan Pihak Kepolisian.

    Tidak Salah Juga Di HARAM-kan, Sebab Hampir Setiap Pertandingan Yang Dilangsungkan Di Tangerang, Apapun Timnya Pasti Pulang Tawuran Dan Melibatkan Warga Sekitar, Karena Permusuhan Sudah Mendarah Daging. Yang Lebih Gila Lagi Ketika Derby Tangerang, Bisa Dipastikan Ada Korban Luka Dan Meninggal Baik Dari Supporter, Warga, Aparat Kepolisian, Sayangnya Tidak Terlalu Di Ekspos Di Media Massa Dan Elektronik.

    5 Tahun Saya Kuliah Di Jogja, Penonton Disana Sangat Kreatif Dan Aktratif, Dahulu Saya Kenal Slemania, Ultras PSS dan Brajamusti, Nonton Pertandingan Disana Sangat Aman Walaupun Pernah Ada Sedikit Gesekan, Tetapi Hanya Di Dalam Stadion Saja Tidak Sampai Keluar.

    Berapa Bulan Ini Saya Melihat Perkembangan Ultras PSS Yang Bermetamorfosis Menjadi BCS -(CMIIW)- Kalian Hebat Dan Sangat Luar Biasa, Justru Saya Liat BCS Dari Situs Ultras-Tifo, Karena Saya Hilang Informasi Tentang Klub Kebanggan Sleman Ini. Beruntung Kalian Punya Situs Ini.

    Saya Sangat Setuju Kalian Menjadi Ultras Tanpa Anarkis, Sebab Itu Yang Di Nantikan Supporter Di Seluruh Negeri Ini, Dan Saya Mendukung Revolusi Kalian BCS, Against Modern Football.

    No Leader Just Together.
    Bantu Saya Menemukan Supporter BCS Di Tangerang Kawan, Karena 50% Darah Saya Ada Di Sleman.

    Sleman Belong To Me.
