Sportclub Heerenveen was founded in 1920 in the town of Heerenveen, Friesland as Athleta. They changed their name twice, first to Spartaan, and then to v.v. Heerenveen in 1922.

After spending most of the 21st century in lower leagues, they reached the Eredivisie in 1990, becoming the first Frisian club to reach the top level, at the expense of near-neighbours Cambuur Leeuwarden.

The team plays their home games at the Abe Lenstra Stadion which opened in 1994.
