Voetbalvereniging De Beursbengels was an amateur football (soccer) club from Amsterdam. The Saturday team last played in the Tweede Klasse in Dutch amateur football. Fielding only three teams, it was one of the smallest football clubs in the Netherlands.[1]

History[edit]

The club was founded as an opportunity team to celebrate the anniversary of the stock exchange in 1964. Employees and coworkers of the stock exchange played in a friendly match against Oud-Amsterdam; The match went so well that on 30 March 1965 VV de Beursbengels was founded. The club started competing in amateur football with three teams, in which the club's first team was promoted from the Derde Klasse of the Amsterdam football union up to the Vierde Klasse in Dutch amateur football. Several promotions and relegations later the club managed to solidify itself as the smallest club ever to compete in the Hoofdklasse; in 2002 the club was relegated once more to the Eerste Klasse and in 2014/15 competed in the Tweede Klasse. In 2015 De Beursbengels fused with another city club, Blauw-Wit, to become Blauw-Wit Beursbengels, ending an era.
