The most important final in the history of the club
The cup final in 1991 is for both FC Den Bosch and the FC Den Bosch fans a high point but also a low point in the history of the club. To start with the best, this was the first and only time FC Den Bosch managed to reach the final of the cup.
After a successful cup campaign, the club had to compete against Feyenoord in the final. This was for the club and the FC Den Bosch fans a unique moment to experience. The tickets for the final were sold out in no time, because you had to be there!
The bookmakers predicted an easy win for Feyenoord, but the opposite turned out to be true. Feyenoord was 1-0 ahead, but had all the trouble with FC Den Bosch. Feyenoord had to pull out all the stops to keep the motivated FC Den Bosch away. The Eredivisionist even managed to push Feyenoord back at times and force great opportunities.
Annoying tail at the end of the match
Unfortunately, it was not to be for FC Den Bosch and there was an annoying tail at the end of the match. In the 83rd minute, the Feyenoord supporters found it necessary to storm onto the field out of joy. The referee then blows his whistle and Feyenoord won the match.
Afterwards FC Den Bosch filed a complaint in vain because the match would have lasted 7 minutes shorter. Unfortunately, this was not heeded. But despite the unfortunate outcome, the cup adventure and build-up to the final was a real fairytale and one of the highlights of the club!
