Get to know Perfisi FISIP UNRI, a campus club from Riau Province that carries the spirit of the Italian Serie A giant Lazio to compete in the Indonesian 3rd League.
Ahead of the start of Liga 3 2021, a surprise came from the Riau region when six clubs managed to enter as new members of the Riau PSSI Asprov.
One of them is Perfisi FISIP UNRI FC, a club that was only formed in 2004 but was quite successful in making achievements until finally being included in PSSI membership.
The unique thing about Perfisi is that this club was formed from an association of FISIP UNRI students who finally got the green light from the Dean of the campus to develop into a professional team.
Perfisi, which originally only competed in inter-campus competitions, slowly began to exist in Riau football and even participated in PSPS League 2.
“Perfisi was founded in 2004, the initial spirit is because my friends and I like football, we want to make this team permanent as a team at FISIP UNRI,” said Adianto as Perfisi Manager to INDOSPORT.COM.
“From the beginning, Perfisi started to participate in competitions held on campus either at UNRI or outside UNRI. because it always wins, Perfisi is proposed to the faculty to take part in a professional competition, namely PSPS league 2,” he added.
The beginning of Perfisi’s participation in PSPS League 2 was quite good, where they were immediately able to finish in 4th position. Even in the following season’s competition, Perfisi was successfully promoted to PSPS league 1.
Had suspended animation for five years due to the departure of the manager who was continuing his studies, Perfisi was finally able to squirm again in 2019.
At its peak, Perfisi managed to become the runner-up when appearing in the FISIP League in Indonesia which took place at the University of Indonesia 2019. In the final, Perfisi lost to FISIP UB with a score of 1-0.
Armed with achievements in 2019, Perfisi management together with FISIP UNRI alumni ventured to register as PSSI members.
“To be registered as a PSSI member is basically not difficult as long as the requirements are met. Because there are our alumni who help take care of it and we follow the conditions given, finally we can be registered with PSSI, “explained Adianto.
