SV Nieuw Sloten is a Dutch amateur football (soccer) club from the Nieuw Sloten neighborhood in Amsterdam founded in 2004. The club have a Sunday team competing in the Vijfde Klasse.[1]


Founded on 4 April 2004, SV Nieuw Sloten are most known for an incident in December 2012 involving the death of Richard Nieuwenhuizen, a linesman from the opposing SC Buitenboys B3 team from Almere, as a result of physical assault by six B1 youth players of Nieuw Sloten and one of their fathers after the match. A couple of hours later, he was not feeling well and was taken to the hospital,[2] where he died due to his injuries.[3] Following the incident, the Royal Dutch Football Association cancelled all amateur matches for 8 and 9 December. A moment of silence was kept during all professional football matches as well as at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.[4] SV Nieuw Sloten suspended all further activities for the remainder of the season following the incident.[5] The players and the father were convicted of manslaughter,[6][7][8][9] and the disciplinary committee of the Royal Dutch Football Association banned five players from football for life, and suspended one player who showed obvious remorse for a period of 60 months.[10]

In February 2016, a referee had to be brought to safety after being attacked by players of Nieuw Sloten,[11] after which the club immediately suspended the team involved.[12]
