New Groningen Shirt 2016-17 | FC Groningen Kits 16-17 Home Away Robey Sportswear
These are the new Groningen shirts 16/17, Dutch club FC Groningen’s new home and away jerseys for the upcoming Eredivisie season. Made by Robey Sportswear, and chosen in an online poll by the club’s fans, the new designs were officially unveiled on 24 November, 2015
The predominantly green shirt will be Groningen’s new away top for 2016/2017. It won 43% of the vote, narrowly beating a black option that was the choice of 38% of voters.
Groningen finished 8th in the Eredivisie in 2014/15, securing a spot in the Europa League thanks to their KNVB Cup triumph.
The club only began their association with Robey earlier this year, just in time for the new 15/16 season, and were earlier oufitted by Dutch sportswear brand Masita. However the latter, which also used to supply clothing to the likes of Venlo and MVV, filed for insolvency, leading to Groningen having to look for a new kit partner.
