club based in Velsen
. The club was established after the merger of two football clubs in the town of Velsen.
When professional football was introduced in the Netherlands, both Stormvogels and neighbouring club VSV played in the professional leagues. Because of financial problems at both clubs, their professional teams were merged on July 17, 1963. The new club was named Telstar, after the Telstar communication satellite
launched that year. Stormvogels and VSV returned to amateur football. In 2001, Telstar and Stormvogels merged again, this time forming Stormvogels Telstar. This merger was disbanded on July 1, 2008, with the professional branch continuing as Telstar.

and its home colors are white. VSV won the KNVB Cup
