sc Heerenveen was founded on July 20, 1920 under the name Athleta. In the 1921/22 season, the name was changed to Spartaan. When the club joined the league of the Dutch Football Association about a year later, it was named VV Heerenveen, because there were already other clubs that played under the name (De) Spartaan. After splitting into departments for amateur and professional football, the name of the club changed to sc Heerenveen on June 1, 1977.
The home of sc Heerenveen is the Abe Lenstra Stadium, named after the former footballer Abe Lenstra, who died in 1985. Currently, 27,224 spectators can take a seat in the stadium. In theory, this means that almost all residents of Heerenveen can take a seat in the stadium as a spectator.
Heerenveen has been playing continuously in the Eredivisie since 1994, winning the KNVB Cup in 2009 as the greatest achievement so far.
Heerenveen has educated several players who have broken through into professional football. Recent examples of this are: Daley Sinkgraven and Hakim Zyech, who both play for Ajax and Jerry St Juste, who plays for Feyenoord.
From the current A-team of sc Heerenveen the following players come from their own youth academy: Michel Vlap, Pelle van Amersfoort, Doke Schmidt, Jizz Hornkamp, ​​Trevor Doornbusch, Vanja Drujic, Dennis Johnsen, Emil Frederiksen and Kik Pierie, who will play for Ajax next season.

With their U19 team, Heerenveen has been playing at the highest level in the Netherlands for years. In 2015, the Frisians won the national cup.
This season the team started in the Eredivisie and after the turn of the year it plays in the Eerste Divisie (high), in which the team of coaches Chris de Wagt and Ronnie Pander seems to qualify for the Eredivisie 2019 without any problems.
The team, which makes its debut at the KST, has three youth internationals in its ranks. Arjan van der Heide plays for the Netherlands, Rami Hajal for Sweden and Birkir Heimisson for Iceland.
