|AFC Door Wilskracht Sterk|
|Founded||1907 as Fortuna|
AFC Door Wilskracht Sterk (English: Strong Through Willpower) is a Dutch football club from Amsterdam. It was founded on 11 October 1907, by the trio of Robert Beijerbacht, Theo Beijerbacht and Jansen van Galen under the name of Fortuna, which was soon changed to Hercules. The team played in a blue and white striped shirt and white shorts. On 22 March 1909 the name of the club was changed to DWS and the shirt colours became blue and black vertical stripes. In 1954 the club entered professional football, playing its home matches in the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. DWS became champions of the Eredivisie in 1964, reaching the quarter finals of the 1964-65 European Cup the next season. In 1972 the club merged with Blauw-Wit Amsterdam and Volewijckers to form FC Amsterdam, which lasted only a decade before disbanding. DWS continued as an amateur club, which still exists today.
Chelsea's only meeting with the Dutch club came in the 1968-69 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. Both matches resulted in goalless draws, so the tie was settled on a coin toss, which the Blues lost.
