Description
Available in:

Football Club Utrecht (Dutch pronunciation: ) is a Dutch football club founded on 1 July 1970 and based in the city of Utrecht. The club's colours are red and white.
FC Utrecht came into being in 1970 as a merger of three clubs from the city of Utrecht: DOS, USV Elinkwijk and Velox.

DOS won the national championship in 1958. FC Utrecht has won the KNVB Cup three times: 1985, 2003 and 2004. In 2004 FC Utrecht won the Johan Cruijff Shield. FC Utrecht was the first club outside the traditional top three Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV to win this Trophy. FC Utrecht is also the only club outside the traditional top three that has never been relegated from the Dutch Eredivisie.

FC Utrecht's stadium is the Stadion Galgenwaard and was previously named Galgenwaard and then later Nieuw Galgenwaard with a current capacity of 24,426 spectators. The average attendance in 2004/05 was 19,600 people. In the season 2006/07 the average attendance rose to 20,004.

On 2 April 2008 it was announced that former owner of Mammoet, Van Seumeren, has taken over 51% of the shares of FC Utrecht. This makes Utrecht the second club in the Netherlands, after AZ, to be owned by investors.

The board of FC Utrecht has further announced that, because of the money they got for this take over, there will be more room for youth facilities and scouting. The board wants FC Utrecht to be competing within the top of the Eredivisie by 2013.

Stadium or Home

Stadion Galgenwaard (Dutch pronunciation: ) is a football stadium in Utrecht that has been the home of the football club FC Utrecht since 1970. The stadium, which underwent a renovation starting at the beginning of the 21st century, has a capacity of nearly 24,500 spectators.

The New Galgenwaard Stadium was opened in 1982. At the time it was one of the most modern stadiums in the world, especially due to the moat around the pitch. After twenty years FC Utrecht felt the need for expansion and renewal. The main stand was moved to the North side and opened for the start of the 2001–2002 season.

The old main stand was rebuilt after that and a year later FC Utrecht had two new stands along the sides of the pitch. Last season, the goal stands were replaced, and the stadium now has 24,426 seats. The stadium was given its current name, Stadion Galgenwaard, in January 2002.

Seven international matches of the Dutch national football team were played in the stadium, the first one being on April 27, 1983: a friendly against Sweden (0–3). The last one, played on September 3, 2004, was also a friendly: a 3–0 win against Liechtenstein.

The stadium was also the host of 2 World Cup finals. In 1998 The Dutch Hockey squad became World Champion, beating Spain in the final (3–2). In 2005, the final of the Football World Youth Championships was played in the Galgenwaard. Argentina won the final, beating Nigeria 2–1, with 2 goals from Lionel Messi.
