Sportclub Heerenveen is a Dutch football club based in the town of Heerenveen. They currently feature in the Dutch Eredivisie and finished fifth in the 2008-2009 season.
SC Heerenveen were founded on July 20,1920 but did not win any major honours in their history. In the 1999-2000 season, Heerenveen finished runners-up and qualified for the UEFA Champions League in 2000-2001.
