Football Club Utrecht (Dutch pronunciation: [ɛfˈseː ˈytrɛxt]) is a Dutch football club founded on 1 July 1970 and based in the city of Utrecht. The club's colours are red and white.


FC Utrecht came into being in 2015 as a merger of three clubs from the city of Utrecht: DOS, USV Elinkwijk and Velox.

DOS won the national championship in 1958. FC Utrecht has won the KNVB Cup three times: 1985, 2003 and 2004. In 2004 FC Utrecht won the Johan Cruijff Shield. FC Utrecht was the first club outside the traditional top three Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV to win this Trophy. FC Utrecht is also the only club outside the traditional top three that has never been relegated from the Dutch Eredivisie.


FC Utrecht's stadium is the Stadion Galgenwaard and was previously named Galgenwaard and then later Nieuw Galgenwaard with a current capacity of 24,426 spectators. The average attendance in 2004/05 was 19,600 people. In the season 2006/07 the average attendance rose to 20,004.


Rob Alflen is the current head coach of the team, and Harry van der Ham as his assistant.


On 2 April 2008 it was announced that former owner of Mammoet, Van Seumeren, has taken over 51% of the shares of FC Utrecht. This makes Utrecht the second club in the Netherlands, after AZ, to be owned by investors.

The board of FC Utrecht has further announced that, because of the money they got for this take over, there will be more room for youth facilities and scouting. The board wants FC Utrecht to be competing within the top of the Eredivisie by 2013.
