History edit

Starting from a group of village football lovers, currently starting their steps in the Liga 3 East Java zone. they have been around since 1985, Sumbersari FC was born and established as a football academy under the name Sumbersari Putra. The name was taken from the name of the village of Sumbersari which is currently the village of Bandulan. Early they entered Liga 3 because of the lack of internal competition in Malang, so that players get playing minutes, this team was included in Liga 3, so that young players in football academy could feel the competition, Then in 2018, they changed their name to Sumbersari FC which was prepared to play in Liga 3 2018 in the East Java zone.[3]

In 2019, this is the second year that Sumbersari FC has played in the Liga 3. With young players, the target is not a benchmark, the team must play well and show hard work. The results will follow later. Sumbersari FC will face a team with a big name, Deltras Sidoarjo.

However, their steps were stopped after they were defeated by Serang Jaya from Banten at that time, Entering early 2021, they changed their name to NZR Sumbersari FC. This is because Sumbersari FC already has a new investor and manager, namely the owner of the NZR Group, Wibie Dwi Andriyas.[5]
