Although they became the runners-up in the 2014 Liga Indonesia Premier Division and got promoted, they were disqualified because they did not qualify during the verification process for the 2015 Indonesia Super League.[1] They then decided to accept the offer from PT Liga to play again in the Liga Indonesia Premier Division.[2]
