Birth of Persib

On the other hand, Atep Kurnia, a writer, claimed to have received information that he was born in 1934, not March 14, 1933. The chairman is Anwar Sutan Pamuntjak.

According to Atep, long before Persib was born, there were two bonds, aka football clubs
indigenous balls, namely Bandoengsche Indonesische Voetball Bond (BIVB) and
National Voetball Bond (NVB). These two clubs are said to have been born in
1923.

Efforts to fusion alias unification of these two clubs then emerged. However,
It took a long time before they finally came together. From the past, there have been several attempts to fuse or unify the two bonds of indigenous people in Bandung.

“The fusion was successful, but it didn’t last long, just
lasted about four months in 1932. Because in early September it was disbanded again,” he continued.

PSKB then split into PSIB or the Indonesian Football Association
Bandung and another one back into NVB. At that time, the chairman of PSKB who
named Sujono and other board members want PSKB to work
same as other bonds.

Because, at that time, Bandung had many bonds. In addition to the indigenous bonds, there was a Dutch bond that was quite popular at that time, the name was Bandoengsche Voetball Bond or BVB. There are also BKPO and bonds from Chinese people named CVTH.

“Based on various sources and literature, I believe that Persib was born on March 18, 1934. There is no strong evidence that Persib was born in 1933,” he said. (N-2)
