About AGOVV Apeldoorn
AGOVV Apeldoorn is a Netherlands football club, playing in the Eerste Divisie, based in Apeldoorn.
The club was founded on 25 February 1913, as AGOSV, which stood for Apeldoornse Geheel Onthoudersvoetbalvereniging Steeds Voorwaarts
. When the club joined the football association of Gelderland, the club had to change its name, because there was another club called Steeds Voorwaarts
. The name was changed to AGOVV, or Apeldoornse Geheel Onthouders Voetbalvereniging , which means Apeldoorn football club for Teetotalism
. The meaning of the abbreviation has since been altered. AGOVV has become Alleen Gezamenlijk Oefenen Voert Verder
(Only Practising Together Brings us Further).
AGOVV became a professional (league) club in 1954, and returned to the amateur ranks in 1971 due to financial problems. On 1 July 2003, AGOVV returned to the Dutch league, when it was re-admitted to the Eerste Divisie. In the 2003/2004 season, forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar became top scorer of the Eerste Divisie with 26 goals.
