The History of Heracles
Almelo were founded on May 3, 1903 as Heracles, after the demigod son of Zeus. They changed their name on July 1, 1974 to SC Heracles '74 and finally settled on the current name in 1998. The club has won the Dutch national title twice, in 1927 and 1941. One of the club's most famous players was South African Steve Mokone, nicknamed The Black Meteor, the first black football player in the Netherlands ever.
In the 2004/05 season, Heracles won the title in the Eerste Divisie, so that during the 2005/06 season, Heracles played in the Eredivisie, where they finished 13th. The average attendance in 2004/05 was 5,700 people. In the recent top flight seasons this has risen to just over 8,300 (close to the maximum capacity of 8,500).
In 2012 Heracles competed in its first Dutch cup final, which it has lost to PSV in De Kuip.
