These are the new Netherlands kits 2016/2017, new uniforms for the Dutch national team for international fixtures in the 16/17 season. Made by Nike, the new Holland shirts were officially unveiled on 21 March, 2016.
The Netherlands, finalists at the 2010 World Cup, and semifinalists at the 2014 event, surprisingly failed to make it to Euro 2016 even as the competition expanded to 24 teams. Guus Hiddink’s side finished with 13 points and only managed to pick up 4 wins out of a possible 10. It meant that the likes of Manchester United’s Memphis, ex Arsenal forward Robin van Persie and Bayern star Arjen Robben will not be seen at the Championships later this summer.
The home shirt is in the country’s traditional orange colour, with blue on the collar, crest and side stripes. Like with other Nike international releases, the insides of the cuff have two words closely connected with the national team- in this case, Oranje and Leeuwen.
The away kit is “Nassau” blue, with a lighter shade for the front, and a darker one adorning the sleeves.
The new kit will first debut in the Netherlands’ friendly game against France later this month.
