The biggest derby in the east of The Netherlands (Gelderland) is played between the teams from Nijmegen and Arnhem. The cities are close to each other (15 km.) and since Vitesse became succesful in the early nineties the hate between the two sides got stronger. Arnhem used to be the city of the rich elite while Nijmegen was built by hard working factory men. NEC was founded by the people from the factories while Vitesse started as a cricketclub.
