The accident happened around 10 pm on the 1st after the football team’s match between Arema FC and Persebaya Surabaya at Kanjuruhan Football Field in Malang Regency, East Java, Indonesia.

After Arema FC’s 23rd loss to Persevaya Surabaya in their home game, some angry home team fans rushed into the stadium to protest the players and team officials, and soon after that the stadium was filled with thousands of spectators .

The police fired tear gas in the process to stop the invading crowd, and thousands of spectators ran towards the exit to avoid the tear gas and got stuck, leading to mass deaths.

Controversy over the police overreaction has arisen as it was revealed that the police had breached the rules of the International Football Federation (FIFA), which prohibits the use of tear gas in stadiums.

For this reason, the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo (Jokowi) said in a statement the day before that he had instructed Police Chief Prabowo to investigate the incident thoroughly, and that the Indonesian Human Rights Commission was also planning an on-site investigation to the incident, including the use of tear gas.

On the same day, the government formed a joint fact-finding team made up of officials from various ministries, professional football associations, academia, and the media, led by the Minister of Political, Legal and Security Coordination, Mahfoud Mde. They intend to investigate the cause of the accident separately from the police for two to three weeks.
