Go Ahead Eagles History
Be Quick was the original name of the club when it was established in 1902 by the Hollander brothers. The Dutch Football Association in 1905 requested that the team’s name be altered, and it was soon after that the name was changed to Go Ahead. The Tweede Klasse was the initial competition level for Go Ahead. 1911 was the year when the club was given promotion to the Eastern Eerste Klasse. First crowned champions of the Eastern Eerste Klasse in 1916, Go Ahead then participated in a battle with the other regional champions to determine who would win the national championship.
Go Ahead emerged victorious and went on to win the national title. However, the southern winners from Willem II proved to be too powerful for the rest of the competition in the final playoffs for the national championship. However, one year later, Go Ahead won their first league title, a victory that they would go on to win in 1922, 1930, and 1933.
At the conclusion of the 2012–13 season, Go Ahead achieved promotion to the 2013–14 Eredivisie by virtue of their victory in the promotion play-offs. This achievement came after nearly two decades spent playing in the Eerste Divisie. The club finished the 2014–15 season in the top tier, where it had previously competed, and placed 13th.
As a result of the Netherlands’ top spot in the UEFA Respect for Fair Play rating, Go Ahead Eagles would be eligible to play in Europe for the 2015–16 season of the UEFA Europa League. Due to financial issues, National Fair Play winner Twente had to withdraw from the competition, which opened the door for Go Ahead Eagles to take their place. In spite of this, they were demoted after losing the promotion/relegation play-offs in May 2015 to De Graafschap by a score of 2–0 on aggregate.
This resulted in their elimination from the competition. In July of 2015, they were defeated by Hungarian side Ferencváros 2–5 on aggregate in the first Europa League qualifying round. The home leg of the competition was played in Emmen because the Adelaarshorst was undergoing renovations, and the away leg was played without spectators because the Hungarians were serving a ban from UEFA. After defeating De Graafschap 5–2 on aggregate in the promotion/relegation play-offs in May 2016, the club was successful in regaining promotion to the Eredivisie on their first try.
However, the team was once again demoted at the conclusion of the 2016–17 campaign. Go Ahead finished in second place in the Eerste Divisie in May 2021, earning them promotion to the Eredivisie after spending the previous four seasons competing in the second division.
