HistoryEdit

The amateur club Emmen was formed on August 21, 1925. When the Dutch professional league was formed in 1954,Emmen opted to maintain its amateur club status instead. [1]

In 1985, Emmen finally joined the professional ranks. In 1988 the club was split up in an amateur and a professional section. The latter was mostly called BVO Emmen ( Betaald Voetbal Organisatie, professional football organisation). In 2005, the professional club Emmen changed its name into FC Emmen, for two reasons. Firstly, it was hoped that the new name would better reflect the club's history, and secondly because many misunderstandings had arisen, among people who had grown to believe that BVO was an abbreviation similar to for instance PSV, RBC or ADO.

FC Emmen has reached the Eerste Divisie play-offs eleven times and on May 20th, 2018, they managed to clinch promotion to the Dutch Eredivisie for the first time in their history after beating Sparta Rotterdam 3-1 in the promotion/relegation play-off finals.[2]

They played their first Eredivisie match on 12 August 2018 against ADO, and won the match by 1–2. Glenn Bijl made the first goal for FC Emmen in the Eredivisie. [3]

StadiumEdit

FC Emmen's JenS Vesting, more popularly known as De Meerdijk, was the scene of several matches of the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship.
