Prins Hendrik Ende Desespereert Nimmer Combinatie Zwolle, or more commonly PEC Zwolle is a professional football club from the historic city of Zwolle in The Netherlands. The city located seventy five miles north east from Amsterdam is one of the oldest in the country.
In 2013-14 under head coach Ron Jans, the team reached the KNVB Beker final, where they destroyed Ajax 5-1 in front of an astounded crowd at De Kuip. Zwolle qualified for the 2014-15 Europa League where they went out in the play-off round to Sparta Praha. The Eredivisie campaign ended with a fine sixth place finish.
PEC Zwolle will play in the Eredivisie in the 2015-16 season.
Once we’d seen the other scores come in we decided to take the easy option and head to the IJsseldelta Stadion in good time. We got on board the no.3 service from Rodetorenplein near to where an ice disco was being set up after a rapid slurp in Cafe Bosch. On the bus we got talking to a Swiss groundhopper who was due to go to Oxford City and Cambridge City the following week as well as Warrenpoint Town in Northern Ireland to revisit an abandoned game, which was well beyond my dedication.
