Sriwijaya F.C. is an Indonesian football club based in Palembang, South Sumatra. The club was founded in 1976 and currently competes in the Indonesia Soccer Championship A. Sriwijaya plays their home matches in the Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium.

In 2008, Sriwijaya became the first team in the history of Indonesian football to achieve the double by winning both 2007–08 Liga Indonesia Premier Division and 2008 Piala Indonesia in the same season. Sriwijaya then won the 2009 Piala Indonesia and the 2010 Piala Indonesia, which made them the first team to win the Piala Indonesia three years in a row.


The club was founded in 1976 .[1] In 2002, the club moved their home base to Solo, Central Java, and changed their name to Persijatim Solo FC due to a financial crisis. But in Solo, the financial crisis was still haunting them. Luckily, in 2004, the Government of South Sumatra wanted a Palembang-based team to compete in the top division of Indonesian football. They also did not want the Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium to be abandoned, after the 2004 National Games just ended. So, they decided to buy Persijatim. The club then changed names to Sriwijaya FC and moved their home base to Palembang, South Sumatra. [2] [3] 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.[4]

They are the first team that have done a double in Indonesia by winning both 2007–08 Liga Indonesia Premier Division and 2008 Piala Indonesia in the same season.[5][6] 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.[7]


They play their home matches in Gelora Sriwijaya Stadium.[8]


The meaning of the team crest is breakdowned by several part of the crest. The first circle describes the clubs strength with unity and peace. The words Sumatera Selatan shows that its owned by South Sumatra government. Bersatu Teguh is a representation of the supporters and the clubs wholeness. The Garuda image shows power and thoughness. Behind the main logo, Mount Dempo and Ampera Bridge can be seen, both seen as South Sumatra's pride and determination.[9]


Their supporter groups are called S-Mania, Singa Mania and Sumselmania.[10]
