The premier league in Indonesia must suspend all games until an inquiry is complete, per an order from President Joko Widodo.

After directing that all Liga 1 matches be suspended while an investigation is conducted, President Widodo urged that this be the “last soccer tragedy in the nation.”

The stampede is the most recent in a string of stadium mishaps.

At a Peru-Argentina Olympic qualifying match in Lima in 1964, a stampede resulted in 320 fatalities and more than 1,000 injuries.

In Sheffield’s Hillsborough Stadium in 1989, 96 Liverpool supporters were crushed to death, and a 97th person died years later from complications related to the incident.

Following Arema FC’s defeat to fierce rivals Persebaya Surabaya in East Java, over 180 people were hurt in the crush.

The number of spectators surpassed the stadium’s capacity by 4,000, according to the nation’s top security official.

After the final whistle, fans can be seen in videos rushing onto the field.

According to Nico Afinta, the East Java police chief, authorities shot tear gas into the crowd, causing a stampede and some incidents of suffocation.

“It had gotten anarchic. They started attacking officers, they damaged cars,” Afinta said adding, two police officers were among the dead.

“We would like to convey that… not all of them were anarchic. Only about 3,000 who entered the pitch,” he said.
