Football kit release: Nike unveils Holland Away Kit


Scott Parker leads England out of the Wembley tunnel tonight for the first time as skipper when England host Holland. 

So thought it was only fair to bring you imagery of the new Netherlands away football team kit! 

The Netherlands’s new away kit represents the inherent style and authority of Dutch football in a sophisticated new black design. 

The new away shirt is black, a naturally stylish and sharp colour, which denotes both authority and a lethal approach to the game. It is augmented with a striking orange panel from the home shirt on the right side from the shoulder to the torso.

In line with Nike’s commitment to superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact, the fabric of the new kit’s shorts is made with 100% recycled polyester, while the fabric of the shirts is made with at least 96% recycled polyester.  Each kit is made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles. 

The fabric is also up to 23% lighter than the version four years ago. Embedded with Nike Dri-FIT technology, the kits help to regulate players temperatures on the pitch by removing sweat from the body to keep them dry and cool faster than ever before.  

Laser-cut ventilation on the shirt promotes localised cooling where athletes need it most to remain focused on the game.  

A new double knit structure and yarns also makes this kit 20% stronger, with no compromise to fit and feel with natural cotton added for comfort. 

Inside the neck is the graphic “Nieuwe Meesters” (New Masters) which pays homage to the creativity and craft of the renowned Dutch artists of the 17th century, including Rembrandt and Vermeer, while also celebrating the current Dutch side, a talented and vibrant group of players who have the potential to make their own history. 

The new away shorts are black, while the new away socks, now with improved cushioning for greater comfort, movement and protection, are also black, giving the kit an overall bold appearance.
