History

Helmond Sport started in the Tweede Divisie. After only a year, the club was promoted to the First Division, where they won the title in 1982 and were promoted to the Eredivisie. There, they would play for two seasons, before being relegated back to the Eerste Divisie. The first season back in the Eerste Divisie saw Helmond Sport reach the cup final, which was lost to FC Utrecht in injury time. Helmond Sport was close to promotion to the Eredivisie in the play-offs of the 2004–05 Eerste Divisie season. They came up 1–0 against Sparta due to a 59th minute Nyron Wau goal, but in the last 20 minutes Riga Mustapha (73') and Rachid Bouaouzan (90+1') scored 1–1 and 1–2 and Sparta was promoted instead. In the 2010–11 season Helmond finished 3rd in the Eerste Divisie but were beaten in the play-off final for promotion to the Eredivisie.
