Born in Swalmen, Schattorie started as a youth and assistant coach with Dutch club VVV-Venlo. He served as the club's head coach on a caretaker basis for four matches in 1996 after former head coach, Jan Versleijen, left the club. After spending twelve years with VVV-Venlo, Schattorie moved to the United Arab Emirates in 2002 to work as an assistant to Jan Versleljen at Al Jazira and as their under-18 head coach. After spending a season in the UAE, Schattorie moved to Saudi Arabia to again work as an assistant to Jan Versleijen at Al-Ettifaq. He also worked as assistant coach to Versleijen at another Emirati club, Al-Shaab. Schattorie returned to Al-Ettifaq in 2008 as under-23 head coach and helped the side win the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Cup. Schattorie then moved to Oman where he was technical director at Muscat Club.
Schattorie became the head coach of Bahraini club, Al-Riffa before returning to Muscat Club as their head coach in 2007. After joining the club when they were at the bottom of the table, Schattorie managed to help the capital side finish eighth in the division, safe from relegation. He then stayed with the club till February 2009, when he became the head coach of Omani side, Fanja. After going undefeated for most of the season during the 2009–10 season, Fanja were defeated in the promotion play-offs against Al-Oruba. Despite the season going very well for Schattorie, he was still let go by the club. Schattorie soon moved back to Saudi Arabia where he became head coach of Al-Khaleej in 2010. After spending years in the Middle-East, Schattorie moved to Africa where he signed as head coach of Red Bull Ghana from 2011 to 2012.
On 9 November 2012 it was announced that Schattorie would become the new head coach of Prayag United of the I-League in India. He coached his first game for the club on 10 November 2012, where he led Prayag United to a 10–1 victory over newly promoted United Sikkim. Schattorie won his first and only cup for the side on 20 March 2013 when Prayag United defeated East Bengal in the IFA Shield final 1–0 through a Ranti Martins goal. Eelco eventually finished the 2012–13 campaign leading Prayag United to a fourth-place finish.
Unfortunately, entering the 2013–14 season, Prayag United were hit hard financially by the chit fund scam. After dealing with the trouble given to him by sponsors, Eelco left the club in January 2014.
East Bengal: 2015
On 19 February 2015 it was announced that Schattorie would return to the I-League to manage East Bengal. However, he lost his first match in charge by four goals to one, in an AFC Cup match, against Johor Darul Ta'zim. Schattorie then managed the club in the I-League for the first time on 1 March 2015 against Dempo at the Fatorda Stadium. Five goals from Ranti Martins saw East Bengal come out as 5–1 winners.
