I the middle of 1970th some Danish and other Scandinavian people living and working in Jakarta spend some of their weekends to play football against other expat and local team in order to create social friendship. It went on for several years before the Club was established as we know today.
Jakarta Vikings Football Club was officially started in 1989 by football players who mostly live in Country Woods Estate (CWE). Many of the players were Danish and other Scandinavian people who live in Jakarta. Over the years we have seen more variation of nationalities forming the club, but we still keep the value in the team: Football, Fun and Friendship.
Jakarta Vikings was founding member of ISC (International Soccer Competition), today called Jakarta International Football League (JIFL). Viking has won the league 2 times in the early days of the league. Last two years Jakarta Vikings has taken the Championship, and we have ended in the top. 3 in the league table the last 6 year.
Today we are around 35-40 members divided into 2 categories: The League players and CWE players / trainees etc. League matches is mostly played Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon.
As a football Club we aim to win matches, but not for any price. Jakarta Vikings have over the years participated in the League and is known for its fair conduct on the field as well as outside. We want to maintain this line. Needless to say that uncivilized behavior against referee, opponent or team members etc is not accepted and will be reason for exclusion. Motto: FFF…. Football Fun Friendship
