FOUNDATION OF THE THE HAGUE FOOTBALL CLUB ‘DE OOIEVAARS’
Originally the club was supposed to be called ‘Vitesse’ but the Den Haag soccer association disagreed. Therefore the name was changed to ‘De Ooievaars’, the ‘Storks’ after the city mascot. In 1941 the German occupiers ordered the club to be disbanded. Out of nine teams only four members survived the war. Still it was decided to re-establish the club and to continue as a general (i.e. not exclusively Jewish) soccer club. ‘Hvv De Ooievaars’ was active until 1986.
