Persita was first formed in the city of Tangerang on 19 April 1940. It only became an official club after being recognized by the PSSI on 9 September 1953 as their member.[2] In the Liga Indonesia Premier Division era, they were relegated in the 1998–99 Liga Indonesia Premier Division season but got promoted in the next season and clinched the 2000 First Division title. They became runner-up in the 2002 Liga Indonesia Premier Division, with Benny Dollo as coach.[3] Despite losing in the 2011–12 Liga Indonesia Premier Division final to Barito Putera, they were promoted to the Indonesia Super League.[4] After a poor performance in the 2014 Indonesia Super League season, they were relegated to the Liga Indonesia Premier Division.[5]


The club used to play their home matches in Benteng Stadium.[2] In 2014, the government of Tangerang Regency started to build a stadium so called Benteng Taruna Stadium. After the construction was completed in 2018, Persita has been playing their home matches in this stadium.[citation needed]


They have around 10,000 fanatic supporters.[2] Some of the famous supporter groups are LBV (Laskar Benteng Viola) and La Viola.[1][6]
