v.v. Ariston '80 is the only open student football association in Delft. Since its founding in 1980, Ariston '80 has grown into a club with more than 500 members. This makes it one of the larger sports clubs in Delft. And thanks to its many activities, the club is also a place for the Delft football enthusiasts to build up a social network.
v.v. Ariston ’80 grew from four men's teams in 1980 to seventeen teams and four women's teams in the 2019-2020 season. With the large number of 21 teams, Ariston '80 offers football for every level. The first women's team plays 2nd class and the first men's team plays 3rd class, while the other teams play between the 2nd and 8th class reserve of the KNVB. So there is the possibility to play football at a serious level, but also to join at a lower level or even to start playing football.
The selection, the non-selection as well as the ladies will train on Tuesday and Thursday. Each team is registered with the KNVB and the matches are played on Saturdays. These take place on the fields of X TU Delft but due to the great growth of the past few years, Ariston '80 was obliged to use the facilities of DVV Delft for more fields.
Aside from football, drinks are organised twice a week, in combination with various activities, both large and small, in the club's own venue on the Brabantse Turfmarkt: the TAP. Furthermore, annual tournaments are organised, such as the New Year's indoor tournament and a big tournament in May to close the season.
Ariston' 80 is being run by students themselves and there is the possibility for the members to develop themselves in one of the many committees of the club. In this way they get to know more people within the club and also outside their team. At v.v. Ariston '80 students can find their place in Delft and play football together with friends on their own level.
