RIOT VIDEO FOOTAGE: Indonesia might be banned by FIFA following stadium protest by Arema FC fans after losing to Persebaya Surabaya during football match

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Indonesia might be banned by FIFA following stadium protest by Arema FC after losing to Persebaya Surabaya during football match. (Read More Here).

The Indonesian top league, BRI Liga 1, has suspended games for a week following the match, and an investigation had been launched, the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) said.

There have been previous outbreaks of trouble at matches in Indonesia, with a strong rivalry between clubs sometimes leading to violence among supporters.

Among global stadium disasters, 97 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death in Britain in April 1989, when an overcrowded and fenced-in enclosure collapsed at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.

Indonesia is to host the FIFA under-20 World Cup in May and June next year. They are also one of three countries bidding to stage next year's Asian Cup, the continent's equivalent of the Euros, after China pulled out as hosts.

“Thirty-four people died inside the stadium and the rest died in hospital,” said East Java Police Chief Nico Afinta.

The death toll is likely still increasing, he said, since many of about 180 injured victims’ conditions were deteriorating.

A hospital director told local television that one of the victims was five years old.

Video footage from local news channels showed fans streaming onto the pitch in the Kanjurujan Stadium in Malang after Arema FC lost to Persebaya Surabaya. Scuffles can be seen, with what appeared to be tear gas in the air. Images also showed people who appeared to have lost consciousness being carried away by other fans.

The stadium holds 42,000 people and authorities said it was a sell-out. Police said about 3,000 people had stormed the pitch. Vehicles outside the stadium were also torched, including a police truck.
