Haarlem Kennemerland is a Dutch football club from the city of Haarlem, established in 2010 as the result of a fusion between the old HFC Haarlem and amateur Tweede Klasse club HFC Kennemerland, after the former club was excluded in January 2010 due to bankruptcy.[1]


On January 25, 2010, HFC Haarlem was declared bankrupt and was thus according to Dutch league rules excluded from the 2009–10 Eerste Divisie.[2]

In February 2010, HFC Haarlem was reborn as an amateur club that took the naming and logo rights of the old team[3] The club began talks for a potential merger with the amateur Haarlem-based side HFC Kennemerland from the Tweede Klasse,[4] It was announced that the merger was completed on April 27; the new club was named Haarlem Kennemerland, and will play home games at Haarlem Stadion, thus aiming to continue the legacy of the old HFC Haarlem.[1][5]
