FC Twente from the city of Enschede plays in the Eredivisie, the premier division of Dutch football. The club was formed in 1965 after a merger of clubs Sportclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys. In the Netherlands they are affectionately known as The Tukkers or The Reds, the latter being a reference to their traditional all red home kit. When playing away from their home at De Grolsch Veste they play in a mainly blue kit.
The Tukkers experienced success in their early years, consistently finishing inside the top five during the period between 1969 and 1973. In the 1973/74 season they nearly won the title, only to be beaten by winners Feyenoord 3-2 on the last day of the season. Their runner-up finish was enough to secure them a place in the UEFA Cup the following season where they finished second after losing to Borussia Mönchengladbach of Germany in the final.

From the 1980's to early 2000's FC Twente hit mixed times which included relegation to the second division in 1983. In 2001 they beat PSV Eindhoven to lift the KNVB Cup for the second time in the clubs history. Then bankruptcy struck during the 2002/03 season nearly forcing the club out of existence.
However the club got its books in order and during the 2008/09 season FC Twente bought in former England manager Steve McClaren who guided the team to their first ever Eredivisie title the following season. Their clinching of the once illusive title came on the back of strong home performances where they won 16 of 17 matches.
