ASV-DWV, or Door Wilskracht Verkregen is a Dutch football club from the north of Amsterdam. The club was founded on 12 May 1912. Its home ground is Sportspark 'Elzenhagen'[1]

ASV-DWV was promoted to first class, the highest amateur football level in the 1913/'14 season. As a result of a flood disaster in 1916, the entire accommodation was destroyed. In 1921 the club started again but now in the third class of the Dutch soccer association (KNVB). In the years 1935, '36 and '37 the club was promoted from the third class and second class to the first class again. In the season 1947/'48 the club made it to the finals of the 'KNVB' cup, but lost after penalties to F.C. Wageningen

They won the ´Arol-cup in the season 1959/'60.

In the 1954 season 1954 the club chose to remain as an amateur team. It also decided to expand to include additional sports including basketball and volleyball. They also decided not to merge with ´de Volewijckers´.

In 1975 / 76 DWV was promoted from second class to the main class. Two seasons later, the season 1977/'78, therefore they were able to participate in the KNVB Amateur Cup.
