Current season

SC Telstar is a Dutch football club based in IJmuiden. The club was established in 1963 after the merger of two football clubs in the town of IJmuiden.

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 Telstar Stadion and its home colors are white. VSV won the KNVB Cup in 1938.
