Almere City FC
Almere City FC is a Dutch football club founded on 14 September 2001, which has played professional football since 2005. The Almere club was part of the Omniworld omni-sport club. Until the 2009/2010 season, the club played under the name FC Omniworld.
As of the 2010/11 season, the club changed its name to Almere City FC, distancing itself from the failed past of the omnisport club. On 16 November 2010, the club from Flevoland announced that Kroonenberg Groep had become a 100 per cent shareholder; the company already owned the stadium.
In the 2010/11 season, Almere City FC finished eighteenth and last in the First Division. Because FC Oss won the Topklasse Zondag and announced their intention to promote, Almere City would be relegated from professional football. Because RBC Roosendaal was declared bankrupt on 8 June 2011, the KNVB decided one week later to award Almere City FC the vacant place.
Almere City FC plays its home matches in the Yanmar Stadium where there is room for 4,500 spectators.
Sit & Heat
In the Yanmar Stadium, 50 of the 4,500 seats are heated with Sit & Heat. Sit & Heat is built into the existing business seats and runs on a battery system.
