De Volewijckers is a former professional football club from Amsterdam, Netherlands.

History

De Volewijckers are one of a number of Dutch clubs that were successful in post-war leagues before being forced to merge to cope with the popularity of the big teams such as Ajax and Feyenoord. In 1942 they won promotion to the top tier of Dutch football to become the biggest club in Amsterdam. They played their home games at Mosveld in Amsterdam-Noord but moved to Ajax' Stadion de Meer during the Second World War after Mosveld was bombed. In 1944 they were crowned Dutch league champions.[1] Formerly amateur, they became a professional club in 1954 and played in the Eredivisie from 1961 through 1963. They were forced to leave Mosveld in 1964 and moved to a new complex in Buiksloterbanne.

In 1974 the club merged with Blauw Wit and DWS to form FC Amsterdam. De Volewijckers continued as an amateur club, but merged with DWV to form DVC Buiksloot in summer 2013.
