History

Sportclub Enschede was founded on 1 June 1910. Soon the club developed in one of the leading football clubs in the Netherlands, winning the national title in 1926 and winning the Eastern League five times. When in 1956 the new Eredivisie was established (as the single highest league in the Netherlands), SC Enschede was one of the topteams with starplayers as Abe Lenstra and Helmut Rahn. In 1958 they lost after 180 (!) minutes the first and last final of the Eredivisie ever against DOS Utrecht. In 1965 they were forced due to debts to merge with their rivals Enschedese Boys to FC Twente. SC Enschede continued as non-league amateur club. Currently they play in the Eerste Klasse (the fifth tier of Dutch football).
