AGOVV Footballclub

[AGOVV flag] by Jarig Bakker, 17 Dec 2001

This footballclub will join the professional ranks next year, and on TV I saw the proud flag wappering in Apeldoorn (Gelderland). In case you're curious about the blue color: it used to be the "Apeldoornse Geheel Onthouders Voetbal Vereniging" (Teatotalers FC), now it's "Alleen Gezamenlijk Oefenen Voert Verder" (only common training leads further), see its homepage.
