De Graafschap is a professional football club from Doetinchem, Netherlands. It was formed on February 1, 1954 and they play their home games on a pitch named Stadion "De Vijverberg". Their current stadium stands on where the old pitch used to be located and was opened on August 12, 2000. The name of the club means the Count's Territory in Dutch although they are nicknamed the 'Super Farmers'.
While not a large club by European club football standards, this club has remained a semi-regular fixture in the Dutch Eredivisie (top league); although to date, it has never won any silverware of importance. De Graafschap is a club with a lot of tradition, however, with players such as the former PSV coach Guus Hiddink ensuring exciting football being played. It also has a large stadium and a large fanbase when compared to many other Dutch teams, particularly those in the Eerste Divisie.
In 2005, its first season back in the top flight, De Graafschap lost out in the Dutch play-offs and were relegated from the Eredivisie. In 2006, it was defeated again in the playoffs, this time as a promotion candidate.
They were crowned champions of the Eerste Divisie on 2007-03-30 and will return to the Eredivisie for the 2007/08 season.
