NETHERLANDS: TSV NOAD (B) (1958-1971) / TSV NOAD (1971-2017)

Eginhardstraat / Melis Stokelaan, Tilburg (TSV NOAD)

Netherlands, province: North Brabant

3 IV 2016 / TSV NOAD - Gilze 4-2 / District South I, Sunday League 3B (= NL Div. 7)

Note: when professional football was allowed in the Netherlands (1954), NOAD - along with Willem II and LONGA, also from Tilburg - joined the league. NOAD remained a professional league club for seventeen years, of which four at the highest level, before bowing out in 1971. After its ground at Industriestraat was demolished in 1957, NOAD groundshared with Willem II at the Gemeentelijk Sportpark (nowadays referred to as Koning Willem II stadium). Its spiritual home from November 1958 onwards, though, has been a new, much smaller ground at Eginhardstraat, which was used for training as well as reserves' and youth matches. When NOAD became a non-league side in 1971, its first team took up playing its matches at this ground as well. After a renovation, the entrance was replaced from Eginhardstraat to the other side of the ground (Melis Stokelaan).
