Nugroho Setiawan’s View on Indonesian Football
Based on an interview published on the PSSI official website in April 2018, Nugroho became a teacher for security manager certification. In 2018, Nugroho said that the security of football matches in the country was far from what it should be. According to him, Indonesian football has not been able to become a means of family entertainment.
“This football stakeholderits a lot. Starting from the organizing committee, media, supporters, to the police. Everyone must be really committed to security issues,” explained Nugroho, quoted by Antara Era from the PSSI official website.
“To underestimate one small thing about security can mean opening the door for something undesirable to happen in a game,” he added.
Since 2020 Nugroho has not been a PSSI administrator. In a joint interview ABC NewsNugroho said that he left the federation because of “politics”.
“There was a political situation in the organization where I had to step aside,” he explained.
Regarding the case at the Kanjuruhan Stadium, Nugroho believes that this can actually be calculated, predicted, and then mitigated. He regretted that such a tragedy could happen.
However, Nugroho could only comment normatively because he was not at the location when the incident occurred. Nugroho highlighted three important things that must be present and synchronized in organizing a football match.
“The first point is the common perception of security among all stakeholder. The second is the condition of infrastructure, this must be done assessment. The third one is supporter behaviour that’s what we have to do engineering“explained Nugroho.
“These three aspects must be synchronized, and when we carry out a risk assessment or risk assessmentwe will come up with a mutually agreed security plan, so a agreed behaviour and procedure,” he added.
He suspected that the synchronization of these three things did not occur in the organization of the match at the Kanjuruhan Stadium last. In Indonesia, he continued, there is no common perception between the security of football matches and the internal authorities.
Before becoming a member of the Kanjuruhan Tragedy TGIPF, Nugroho said that the investigation of the bloody incident should have been carried out by an independent body, not PSSI.
“For me, just one person (killed) is extraordinary, especially when it reaches more than 100 people. So it must be a higher or independent body,” he explained.
