NOAD ADVENDO Combinatie Breda, commonly known simply as NAC Breda, is a Dutch football club based in the city of Breda. They currently feature in the Dutch Eredivisie and finished third in the table in the 2007-2008 season.

NAC Breda was founded on September 19,1912 when the two clubs, NOAD and ADVENDO, merged together. In 1921 they won the Dutch first division title and then in 1973 emerged victorious in the KNVB Cup.

NAC Breda play their home matces at the rat Verlegh Stadion which can entertain a crowd of just 17,064. The club bears the nicknames the Pearl of the South, the Yellow Army and the Rats.

Actually NAC confronted financial difficulties in 2003 and their problems were solved only when the city of Breda bought the club’s ground. Since then the club has been playing their matches at the stadium ‘on rent’. To exhibit their goodwill, the club altered their name to ‘NAC Breda’.

In recent seasons, NAC Breda have played in the UEFA Cup in 2003 and reached the semi-finals of the KNVB Cup in 2004.

The full name of NAC Breda is: Nooit opgeven altijd doorzetten Aangenaam door vermaak en nuttig door ontspanning Combinatie Breda. This is possibly the longest name a football club has ever been bestowed with.
