Dutch East Indies Tour of Wiener SC 1936


The Wiener Sportclub (W.S.C.) were the second European (and Austrian) side to visit the Dutch East Indies, following the Grazer Sport Club in 1934, and the first professional club to do so (ignoring the doubtful amateur status of 1929 and 1930 visitors Loh Hwa). At the time, they were a mid-table side in the Austrian league, having finished 6th (out of 12 teams) in the 1935/36 season (ahead of 1936 Mitropa Cup winners Austria). In the two seasons following the trip, 1936/37 and 1937/38, they would reach (and lose) the domestic cup final, and in the latter of the two (the season of the Anschluß) they also finished runners-up in the Austrian league behind Rapid and reached the German cup semifinal.
The club left on 3 June from the Südbahnhof in Wien and took the "Johan van Oldenbarneveldt" on 5 June from Genova, arriving in Batavia on 25 June. The Dornbacher then embarked on a series of 18 matches on Java within 32 days, winning all but one. They left Batavia on 29 July, with the "Jan Pietersz. Coen", and played and won one more match in Medan, on Sumatra, on their way back to Europe.
Matches in the Dutch East Indies

on Java

NB: XIs by the hosts generally refer to the "Bondselftal" of the local 
    "European" football federation, e.g. the V.B.O. for Batavia and the 
    S.V.B. (Soerabajasche Voetbalbond) for Soerabaja; club teams playing
    the Wiener SC tended to be the 1935/36 champions of their federation 
    (S.V.J.A. for Batavia, Sparta for Bandoeng); in addition, two teams
    representating "native" city federations (P.S.S.I. champions Persis 
    from Solo and P.S.I.M. from Djokjakarta) played the visitors as well
    as a Java selection representing the N.I.V.U. (Dutch East Indies FA).

During the boat trip to the Dutch East Indies, the W.S.C. telegraphically arranged 
two additional matches in Colombo (Ceylon), but these had to be cancelled as the
steamship to be used from there for the return to Europe was completely booked.


Squad Wiener SC

The Wiener SC arrived with a 17-men delegation in the Dutch East Indies,
including 15 players; trainer Edi Kanhäuser ended up playing in a number
of matches as well, due to injuries such as that of centre half Josef 
Chloupek, who only played a few minutes against the Soerabaja selection 
and 10 more in the final match in Medan.
Some first names are not available; additional information is welcome.

    Austria's second goal) was an active international player; Vavra would win
    his first cap in 1937 while all others had finished their international

      by two guest players from Soerabaja, Tong Thjiang and Telwe.  Telwe missed 
      a penalty for the V.M.O. team with the score at 0-3; like Malang 'keeper Mo
      Heng, he later was part of the Dutch East Indies squad at the 1938 World Cup.

11- 7 H.B.S.           4-3 Wiener SC

H.B.S.: De Wilde; Van Genderen, Tong Thjiang; Nawir, Roerich, Breemer;

       40' Roerich (pen) 3-2, unknown 3-3, 57' Siswanto 4-3
Half-Time: 2-2
Note: at Tiong Hoa-terrein, Cannalaan;
      until 22 May 1936 (on which day they lost 1-3 to the touring China national
      team preparing for the Berlin Olympics), H.B.S. had boasted the proud record
      of never having lost to a foreign touring side - at least according to local
      newspapers apparently ignorant of a 0-1 loss against a Calcutta touring side
      on 11 September 1929.  Be that as it may, their win against the first ever
      professional club side to visit the Dutch East Indies showed that H.B.S. were
      among the strongest clubs of Java.  Nawir and Soedarmadji later were part of
      the Dutch East Indies squad at the 1938 World Cup.

12- 7 S.V.B. XI        1-4 Wiener SC

S.V.B.: Tan Hok Gie; Samuels (Castens), Roerich; Nawir, Tio Sie Liong,

      after a few minutes.

           Siauw Tjong, The Tjoen Swee; Tjia Soen Djien, Kwee Siauw Ling, 
           The Hway Gie, Tan See Han, The Hong Djien

      and the first "native" side to play W.S.C. during their tour.

19- 7 Miss Riboet XI   0-3 Wiener SC

Goals: Facco 0-1, Vavra 0-2, Vavra 0-3
Half-Time: 0-0
Note: all goals for Wiener SC were scored in the last ten minutes.  Miss Riboet
      (Miss Ribut - ribut means "noisy" in Malay) was a famous native actress
      who managed a football side (representing her Maleisch Operette-Gezelschap 
      Orion) since 1928, playing (in green shirts, thus nicknamed "De Groenen")
      on selected occasions such as charity matches.  At the time, Miss Riboet XI
      most likely was the strongest "native" football team in the Dutch East Indies.
      In November 1937, striker Abidin was mentioned among the candidates for the
      Dutch East Indies 1938 World Cup selection.  Miss Riboet XI were a late 
      replacement for the Midden Java XI as opponents for the Wiener SC.

23- 7 Sparta           1-3 Wiener SC

Sparta: De Wolff; Hukom, Onink; Moningka, Helmericks, Schippers; Sinal,
        Kloër, Breitschaft, Prins, Winokan

Half-Time: 0-2
Note: at Nieuw-Houtrust (U.N.I.-terrein).  Sparta were the 1935/36 champions of 
      the Bandoeng local league.
 
26- 7 V.B.O. XI        0-1 Wiener SC

V.B.O.: Van Beuzekom; Van Minos, Teterissa; Anakotta, Eckardt, Brugman; Knape,
        Zomers, Boellaard van Tuyl, Jahn, Onong
Wiener SC: Franzl; Graf, Purtz; Vavra, Facco, Galli; Kral, Dallinger,
           Geiter (10' Kanhäuser), Gallas, Pillwein
referee: Hagenaar
Half-Time: 0-0
Note: at Deca-Park (Hercules-terrein).  Exactly one week earlier, on 19 July, an
      almost identical V.B.O. team (the only difference being Van Ekris playing 
      instead of Onong), had beaten the V.I.J. (the "native" football federation
      of Batavia) 9-0 at the Planten- en Dierentuin ground, with five goals by
      Boellaard van Tuyl, three by Zomers and one by Jahn.
      Van Beuzekom and Zomers later were part of the Dutch East Indies squad at 
      the 1938 World Cup.

28- 7 N.I.V.U.         0-2 Wiener SC

N.I.V.U.: Kho Boen San (Cheribon); Ch.G. 'Fried' Jahn (Semarang), L. de Jongh
          (Djokjakarta); Oey Siong Tjoan (Batavia) [HT: J. Anakotta (Batavia)],
          Tjoetjoe (Bandoeng), H. Zomers (Batavia); P. Knape (Batavia),
          F.J. Prins (Bandoeng), H. Boellaard van Tuyl (Batavia), L.E. Jahn
          (Batavia), W. Manginsela (Soerabaja); unused subs: J.A. Mateys,
          E.P. Denkelaar, J. Teterissa, Rd. Onong Noeman, A. Belle (all Batavia),
          S. Lontoh (Bandoeng)
Wiener SC: Franzl; Graf, Purtz; Wanderer (HT: Kanhäuser), Vavra, Galli;
           Kral, Dallinger, Facco, Gallas, Pillwein
referee: Hagenaar
Goals: Pillwein 0-1, Kanhäuser 0-2
Half-Time: 0-0
Note: at Deca-Park (Hercules-terrein); the N.I.V.U. team (also announced as 
      Java XI) was virtually without players from Soerabaja and included only
      a handful of Batavia players in the starting line-up in spite of those 
      two cities dominating football on the island.  Alone among the 18-men
      N.I.V.U. squad, only Zomers later was part of the Dutch East Indies
      squad at the 1938 World Cup.
