FC Dordrecht


FC Dordrecht is a Dutch football club based in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. On August 16, 1883, the club was originally founded as the D.C.C. (Dordrechtsche Cricket Club). However, because football soon proved to be a much more popular sport, it was added to the name in 1891 (Dordrechtsche Cricket en Football Club (D.C.F.C.)). When in 1899 football had completely surpassed cricket, the club continued under the name D.F.C.. D.F.C. played in the red and white.

In 1972, the professional branch was renamed FC Dordrecht. Two years later, the professional branch, now led by the then TV presenter Dick Passchier, became independent of the amateur branch. On July 1, 1991 the club merged with SVV from Schiedam to form SVV/Dordrecht’90, on September 19, 1992 the club decided to continue as Dordrecht’90, as the club on the Krommedijk had been called since 1990. SVV was only added to keep svv’s eredivisie license after the merger (in 1991). Since 2002 the club is called FC Dordrecht again.
