AZ or AZ Vrouwen was a women's association football club based in Alkmaar and the Zaanstreek, the Netherlands. They were affiliated with the AZ men's team. They were founder members of the Eredivisie Vrouwen in 2007 and won the first three editions of the championship. In February 2011 AZ announced they were withdrawing support for their women's section, for financial reasons.
Telstar entered a team in the 2011–12 women's Eredivisie and most of the AZ players signed for the newly formed club.
