Current season

Sportclub Telstar (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈtɛlˌstɑr]) is a professional association football club based in the town of IJmuiden, North Holland, Netherlands, that competes in the Eerste Divisie, the second tier of the Dutch football league system. The club was founded on 17 July 1963, as a merger between the professional departments of rivals VSV and Stormvogels. The new club was named Telstar, after the then recently launched communications satellite.

Telstar plays its home games at the Rabobank IJmond Stadion. Since its founding in 1963, the football club has used the The Tornados' song "Telstar" as the entrance tune for home games.

History

When professional football was introduced in the Netherlands, both IJVV Stormvogels and neighbouring club VSV played in the professional leagues. Because of financial problems at both clubs, their professional teams were merged on 17 July 1963. The new club was named Telstar, after the Telstar communication satellite launched that year. Stormvogels and VSV returned to amateur football. In 2001, Telstar and Stormvogels merged again, this time forming Stormvogels Telstar. This merger was disbanded on 1 July 2008, with the professional branch continuing as Telstar.

Its home stadium is the 3,625 seater Rabobank IJmond Stadion and its home colors are white. VSV won the KNVB Cup in 1938.
