Ciliwung, some 200 meters from the stadium. “We come here to witness the match in the stadium, not to watch it on a screen. We know the match is without spectators, but it doesn’t mean that supporters are forbidden to watch it in the stadium,” said a Bonek member who wished to remain anonymous. Arema’s Aremania has been particularly hostile toward Persebaya’s Bonek. The rivalry between the two soccer teams is significant because they are both based in East Java.
