ADO Den Haag
ADO Den Haag was founded on February 1, 1905. The club was founded in the then café 'Het Hof van Berlin' at 32 Papestraat in The Hague. The cafe was owned by the father of one of the boys (Jan van Gulik) who founded the club. At the time, they were boys who played football every day after school at the foot of the Haagsche Toren. From that period until now, ADO has grown enormously. ADO has been a top player in the Dutch Eredivisie for years. In addition to the first team, ADO also has its own youth academy, which makes it a real top sports association.
Since 2012, the Women's team has also been part of this. It has become clear that women's football is booming in recent years. Especially the ADO ladies contribute to this in the Netherlands. Since 2012, the first ladies team of ADO has been a fact and the ladies compete for the prizes. In the first season the women finished 5th, but as 2nd Dutch club. By participating in the BeNe League, the team is growing every week. The statistics also show that ADO is the best women's team in the Netherlands, in addition, Jong ADO became Cup champion in the year 2011/2012 and they are again at the top of the competition. They prove time and again that the ADO women, just like the ADO men, are part of a top club!
