NETHERLANDS: RVV Steeds Volharden (1927-1998) / SC Duivesteyn (1998-2007) / vv Hillegersberg (2007-)

Duivesteyn, Rotterdam (vv Hillegersberg, formerly RVV Steeds Volharden / SC Duivesteyn)

Netherlands, province: South-Holland

6 III 2018 / vv Hillegersberg (za) - vv Alexandria '66 1-5 / Voetbal Rijnmond Cup R3

Note 1: the Elascon-type stand gracing vv Hillegersberg's ground was constructed in the course of the 1967/1968 campaign. At that time, the pitch was occupied by RVV Steeds Volharden. In 1998, Steeds Volharden merged with Sporting Lodewijk/Pioniers (in itself a merger of Sint-Lodewijk & SVDP, concluded in 1991), forming SC Duivesteyn. Both Sint-Lodewijk and SVDP (SV De Pioniers) had been playing at the Duivesteyn sports facilities for decades, though on other pitches than Steeds Volharden's main pitch. vv Hillegersberg, lastly, is the result of a 2007 merger of SC Duivesteyn with another club from the northern part of Rotterdam, SMV-Hillegersberg.
