Excelsior won the Hoofdklasse of 2013 and became champions of the Topklasse just two years later.[2] Also known as the Tricolores, Excelsior due to their 2016 title win, was promoted to the Tweede Divisie. As so in the division's inaugural season Excelsior ended up at fifth in the league's standings.[2]

In the 2023–24 season, Excelsior finished 16th and had to participate in the relegation playoffs. However, Excelsior defeated USV Hercules 4–1 on aggregate in the first round, Harkemase Boys 3–2 in the second round, and then defeated SC Genemuiden 6–1 in the final, retaining their Tweede Divisie status.[3]
