SC Cambuur Leeuwarden, formed on June 19, 1964, is a Dutch football club, currently playing in the Eerste Divisie. The club's home ground is the 10,000 seater Cambuur Stadion and they play in yellow shirts and blue shorts. The club's emblem originates from the coat of arms of the House of Cammingha, a Dutch noble family. SC Cambuur played four seasons in the Eredivisie. In 2000 the club went down to the Eerste Divisie and has been there without success. In the eighties and nineties the club was a regular contender in the Eerste Divisie playoffs. Cambuur won the Eerste Divisie title in 1992 and promotion in 1998. Back then Leeuwarder millionaire Jan Riedstra (64) was involved. He left the club in 1999 and after his departure the club went almost bankrupt in 2005. The same Jan Riedstra saved the club with his friends Wim Sleijfer, Dirk Hoekstra and Klaas Buwalda by buying the stadium and clearing the club's debt. Under the leadership of Dutch American GM Alex Pama the club has found its way up.
