Youth career

Ars played in the youth of DVC'26 from the town of Didam, and was later picked up by Dutch giants, Feyenoord. He never broke through to the first team, and chose to play professionally for De Graafschap.

Dutch second division

After one season in Doetinchem, he decided to sign with FC Omniworld, a club that became a licensed pro-club that year. In his first season in Almere, Ars scored 17 goals.

He later played 4 successful seasons for Go Ahead Eagles and RBC Roosendaal.

FC Zwolle

In 2010, Ars signed a contract at FC Zwolle.[1][2] He started the season well by scoring 11 goals in his first 10 league matches. He finished the season with 28 goals, scored in 33 matches.

PFC Levski Sofia

His great season with FC Zwolle was enough to be signed by Bulgarian side PFC Levski Sofia. Ars arrived in Sofia on 23 June 2011 and signed his 3-year contract on the next day. On 28 July 2011, in his official debut for Levski, he came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal for the 2:1 win over FC Spartak Trnava. Ars also netted a goal to open the scoring in the return leg, but Levski were eventually eliminated after losing the penalty shootout to decide the match (the aggregate score at the end of extra time was 3:3). On 6 November 2011, he scored a brace in the 3:2 home win over Loko Plovdiv in an A Group match.

Tianjin Teda

In February 2012, Ars was loan to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda. Tianjin Teda also had an option to make move permanent in the end of the 2012 league season. He made his official debut for Tianjin on 25 February, in a 2–1 CFA Super Cup defeat against Guangzhou Evergrande.
