This is because, up to the 1980s, the club had incorporated both its professional and its amateur players into its club structure.


The club has regularly finished in the Eredivisie top five positions and featured in the UEFA Cup competition. However, since 2003, the club has fallen on tough circumstances after it was discovered that Karel Aalbers was involved in a tax fraud back in 2000 and has since failed to reach its previous heights.
