About FC Utrecht

FC Utrecht is a Netherlands association football club founded on 1 July 1970 and based in the city of Utrecht (city). The club's colours are red and white.

History

FC Utrecht came into being in 1970 as a merger of three clubs from the city of Utrecht (city): DOS, Elinkwijk and Velox.

It never featured in the UEFA Cup after 1991 and had to wait for a further ten years to play European football again.

DOS won the national championship in 1958. FC Utrecht has won the KNVB Cup three times: 1985, 2003 and 2004. In 2004 FC Utrecht won the Johan Cruijff Shield. FC Utrecht was the first club outside the traditional top three AFC Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven to win this Trophy. FC Utrecht is also the only club outside the traditional top three that has never been relegated from the Netherlands Eredivisie.

Stadium

FC Utrecht's stadium is the Stadion Galgenwaard having been previously first named Galgenwaard and later Nieuw Galgenwaard with a current capacity of 24,426 spectators. The average attendance in 2004/05 was 19,600 people. In the season 2006/07 the average attendance rose to 20,004.

Management

Jan Wouters is the current manager of the team with Rob Alflen as his assistant. Foeke Booy, the previous manager who led the team to two cup titles and a Johan Cruijff Shield, is now the technical director.

Business

On 2 April 2008 it was announced that former owner of Mammoet, Van Seumeren, has taken over 51% of the shares of FC Utrecht. This makes Utrecht the second club in the Netherlands, after AZ (football club), to be owned by investors.

The board of FC Utrecht has further announced that, because of the money they got for this take over, there will be more room for youth facilities and scouting. The board wants FC Utrecht to be competing within the top of the Eredivisie by 2013.
