History edit

The stadium was named after Agus Salim, a Muslim intellectual and national hero of Minangkabau from the area where the stadium is located. The 2009 Sumatra earthquakes heavily damaged the stadium. The stands were destroyed and there was damage to facilities, including lighting. The dressing rooms were also damaged, and the resultant condition of the field rendered the stadium unfit for use. Repairs were completed in 2012.

Structure and facilities edit

The stadium has 4 tribune categories for spectators, west for VIPs with single seats, east for public, south for Spartacks and north for The Kmers.
