History

Founded in 1932, PSIS is one of the oldest soccer teams in Indonesia. Before the professional league was held in 1994/1995, PSIS joined Perserikatan, football amateur competition organized by PSSI. The best achievement was in the 1986/87 season when PSIS won the title after defeating Persebaya Surabaya in the final 1-0.

In 1994, when Perserikatan and Galatama merged into Liga Indonesia, PSIS were put into the Premier division. In the 1998/1999 season, PSIS got their highest achievement by winning the probey. In the final, PSIS defeated Persebaya Surabaya with score 1-0. The goal was scored by Tugiyo, who was renowned as "Maradona from Purwodadi", in the injury time of the second half. But after that excellent performance, PSIS did not well in the transfer window. Consequently, PSIS were ironically relegated in 1999/2000 season. A year later, PSIS managed to secure a promotion ticket back again to the Premier division.

PSIS needed a win in the last match against Persiba Balikpapan to progress to the semi final, and they successfully booked a place in semi final with 1-0 victory in a controversial postponed match due to pitch invasion by the fans.
