This is the new Utrecht home jersey 2016/17, FC Utrecht’s new principal strip for the upcoming Eredivisie season. Made by Hummel, the new Utrecht shirt was unveiled today (May 8, 2016) and was worn in the fixture at home against AZ Alkmaar. Unfortunately for the hosts, they were at the receiving end of a 3-1 scoreline. Alkmaar also debuted their new 2016/17 Under Armour away strip in this game.
Utrecht’s new home shirt is predominantly red, a decision the club said they took after seeing the positive reaction to David di Tommaso’s memorial shirt. The diagonal half and half design, present in the 15/16 shirt, has moved to the back.
Zorg van de Zaak are shirt sponsors, with their name appearing in three lines over the shirt (like the Cup shirt from the current season)
