Despite spending plenty of seasons in the Eredivise, SC Heerenveen have never won the biggest prize in Dutch football despite coming close on a number of occasions.

Their most recent season as runners-up was in 1999/2000, this time being beaten to the title by a dominant PSV Eindhoven team that Ruud van Nistelrooy led. The club’s greatest achievement came in the 2008/09 season when they won the KNVB Cup final against FC Twente, winning the final on penalties after a 2-2 draw after extra time. They have made the final a further two times, losing in the final to 1993 and 1997 to Ajax and Roda JC respectively.
