FC Volendam is a Dutch football club from Volendam. The club was founded on 1 June 1977 as a split-off from RKSV Volendam (founded on 1 June 1920). The uniform consists of an orange shirt and black trousers: therefore the club is also called 'The Other Orange'. The home games are played at the Kras Stadium where there is room for about 7,000 spectators.
Volendam has reached the final of the KNVB Cup twice so far. The first time was in 1958, when Sparta won 4-3. In May 1995 Feyenoord won the cup after a 2-1 victory. The club's highest ranking was sixth in the Eredivisie in the 1989/90 and 1992/93 seasons.
Characteristic of Volendam are the many local players, with names like Schilder, Tol, Steur, Veerman and Jonk and the many promotions and relegations to and from the Eredivisie. The botter that always rides over the Dijk when the players are promoted is also called De Heen en Weer. The last time the club relegated from the Eredivisie was in the 2008/09 season. In the 2021/22 season, Volendam finished in second place in the First Division, which enabled them to promote directly to the Eredivisie. Thus Volendam returned to the highest level after thirteen years.
