SC Veendam (Dutch pronunciation: [ɛs.ˈseɪ̯ ˈveɪ̯n.dɑm]) was a Dutch football club based in Veendam, Groningen province, established in 1894 and dissolved in 2013. The club's official colours were black and yellow.

History[edit]

The club was founded on 4 September 1894, which makes it one of the oldest professional Dutch football clubs. The club's first name was Look-Out, which was changed to Prinses Juliana Veendam (Princess Juliana Veendam) in 1909, which soon became simply Veendam. Veendam became professional in 1954, when the Dutch professional league was introduced. The professional branch of the club left the club in 1974, to form Sportclub Veendam. The amateur branch became Veendam 1894. Sportclub Veendam would later become Betaalde Voetbal Veendam, more commonly known as BV Veendam.

The club has spent the largest part of its professional existence (42 seasons) in the Dutch Eerste Divisie, where it is currently playing. The club has spent six seasons in the Second Division, and has played in the Eredivisie for three seasons: 1954–55 (13th), 1986–87 (17th) and 1988–89 (18th).

During the 2009–10 season, a number of financial issues emerged at Veendam, and on 28 April 2010 (only days after the end of the 2009–10 Eerste Divisie) the club was requested to be declared bankrupt due to excessive debts.[2] On 12 May 2010, BV Veendam was ultimately declared bankrupt, an event that threatened to put an end to the club's 115-year history.[3] However, the verdict was later overturned on appeal, after the club managed to collect enough money to pay off most of its debts before the deadline of 2 June.[4][5] In 2011, the club changed its name from BV Veendam to SC Veendam.[6] Veendam's main rival was FC Emmen from Emmen. Renewed funding problems made the club file for bankruptcy, which was declared on 25 March 2013.[1]
