These are the new Groningen shirts 2020/21, FC Groningen’s new home and away kits for the upcoming Eredivisie season. Made by Puma, the new Groningen jerseys were officially unveiled on 27 June, 2020, the same day that Dutch legend Arjen Robben announced his plans of a comeback with his former club.
Robben started his career with Groningen before moving to PSV and the veteran winger has announced that he will attempt to again don the colours of his boyhood club in the 20/21 campaign.
Groningen’s new home shirt features the club’s green and white stripes and will be paired with white shorts and socks. The stripes are broken, with sponsor Office Centre appearing in the centre.

This is the new AZ Alkmaar shirt 2020/21, Dutch side AZ’s new primary uniform for the upcoming Eredivisie season. Made by Nike, the new AZ home jersey was officially unveiled on June 25, 2020, several weeks after the club had released their away and third shirts for the 20/21 campaign.
This is AZ’s first season with Nike as kit partners, and unlike the simpler away and third shirts, the sportswear giant have given a more interesting design to the home shirt. The top can be paired with either red or white shorts. The back of the jersey is plain- the design doesn’t extend to the reverse.

These are the new AZ Alkmaar shirts 2020/21, AZ’s new away and third kits for the upcoming Eredivisie season. The two jerseys are the first to be released as part of a new kit deal between AZ and Nike that will see the latter replace Under Armour as the club’s principal shirt partners. The AZ Alkmaar Nike contract is for a period of five years, beginning in 20/21 and till the end of the 24/25 league season. Under Armour’s contract was for a similar period, with the Maryland based firm having replaced Macron as AZ’s kit suppliers in 2015.
With AZ having finished second in the 2019/20 Eredivisie season behind Ajax when the league was cancelled due to Covid-19, it also means the Alkmaar outfit will wear Nike in the Champions League next season.
The new AZ away shirt for 2020/21 is an all blue creation modelled by Yukinari Sugawara below, while the third kit is the one worn by Calvin Stengs. AFAS remain principal shirt sponsors. Continue reading
