Volendam now has one professional club in FC Volendam and one amateur club in RKAV Volendam, but the two have their origins as the same club.

RKAV Volendam (Roman Catholic Amateur Football Club Volendam) is a Dutch amateur football club, founded on June 1, 1920 with the name Victoria. The name was soon changed to RKSV Volendam (Roman Catholic Sports Association Volendam). The club did not join the KNVB, but the Catholic Football Association, where it became national champions in 1935 and 1938. In 1940 the club ended up at the KNVB after all other associations had been merged into the KNVB. On July 1, 1977, the club was split into professional club FC Volendam and amateur club RKAV Volendam.
