Dutch Teams

Football is one of the most popular sports in the Netherlands. In the late 19th and early 20th century, several Dutch teams were founded, Sparta Rotterdam (1888), Ajax Amsterdam (1900), ADO Den Haag (1905), Feyenoord (1908), PSV Eindhoven (1913)…

Three clubs have historically shared almost all the Eredivisie titles. These clubs are 21-time league champions Ajax Amsterdam, 18-time champions PSV Eindhoven and 9-time champions Feyenoord Rotterdam. In addition, Ajax have won 17 Dutch Cup titles and 7 Dutch Super Cup titles. PSV have won 8 cups and 7 super cups, while Feyenoord have won 11 cups and 2 super cups. The highest level in Dutch football is called the Eredivisie (or top division), and the division immediately below it is the Eerste Divisie. At the third level is the semi-professional Tweede Divisie. Below that, there are six other divisions within amateur football.

Three Dutch teams have won the European Cup, Ajax four times (1971, 1972, 1973, 1995), Feyenoord (1970) and PSV (1988).

The national team is one of the world’s greatest footballing powers. It has won the 1988 European Championship, as well as finishing third in 1976 and semi-finalists in 2000 and 2004. At the world level, it has reached three finals in its history: in 1974, 1978 and 2010, finishing runner-up in each of them. The team traditionally wears orange, because in the 1970s it was nicknamed A Clockwork Orange, when it practised the tactical scheme of total football.
