Football Club Volendam is a Dutch football club based in Volendam, Edam-Volendam, North Holland. Founded on June 1, 1977, as a result of a split up with RKSV (founded 1920).[1] It currently plays in the Eerste Divisie, holding home games at Kras Stadion, with a 6,984-seat capacity.


Football Club Volendam was founded as Victoria on June 1, 1920 by local fishermen. By 1923, the club had already been renamed to its most famous denomination. In 1977 RKSV Volendam split up in RKSV (non-pro) en FC Volendam (pro), this situation is still actual today.

Being from the piously catholic village of Volendam, the club quickly joined the Catholic Football Association of the Netherlands. In 1935 and 1938, Volendam won that competition and, in the Second World War, was forced by the nazis to join the KNVB. In 1955, the club joined the professional football league, soon establishing its reputation as the Heen-en-weer club (the back-and-forth club) due to the many times the club was promoted and relegated throughout its history.

Throughout the years, Volendam spawned many talented players, such as Wim Jonk, Edwin Zoetebier, Arnold and Gerrie Mühren and Henk Veerman. The club also has an accomplished scouting and youth system, which spreads across many different countries.
