HistoryEdit

PSP Padang was established in 1928, the name of PSP Padang at that time, Sport Vereniging Minang (SVM) chaired by Dr. Hakim belongs to the Padang football organization known as the Ilans Padang Electal (IPE), which became the forerunner to the establishment of PSP Padang.[4]

However, the existence of this IPE did not last long, because the Dutch Colonial Government changed it by forming a Padang football organization in 1935 with the name Voetballbond Padang En Omstreken, at that time chaired by a Dutch "football fan" namely Meneer Vander Lee. at that time the match at night was held at the Dipo Field.[4]

Along with domestic political turmoil, in 1942, the Netherlands handed over its power to Japan. Japan's first action was to scorch everything that smelled of the Netherlands, including VPO. This causes no Padang football achievements to stick out either as a team or individually. Nevertheless, the presence of Japan has a silver lining. At that time St. Mantari together with other Padang football figures took the initiative to change the name of the VPO to PSP (Persatuan Sepak Bola Padang), and Yusuf St. Mantari became the first general chairman under the name PSP. It turned out that at that time, Japan did not bother him at all. in that note also the name PSP was used for the first time.[4]
