Nike Football unveils Netherlands Away National Team Kit

The Netherlands’s new Away National Team Kit represents the inherent style and authority of Dutch football in a sophisticated new black design.

The sharp black of the new away jersey denotes both authority and a lethal approach to the game. It's 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 and natural cotton added for comfort.

Inside the neck, a graphic “Nieuwe Meesters” ("New Masters") pays homage to the creativity and craft of renowned Dutch artists of the 17th century such as Rembrandt and Vermeer while also celebrating the talent and potential of the current Dutch team.

The 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 a bold appearance. 

Base layer apparel includes Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong shorts and Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top. The base layer and kit combine to create the modern uniform of dress for football. The Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong compression men's slider shorts provide added support featuring padded waist and thigh protection in the most critical areas so players can train and tackle with confidence, while mesh fabric is placed in the high heat zones for breathability.The Nike Pro Combat Hypercool 2.0 top delivers ventilation and sweat-wicking fabric to help keep athletes cool and comfortable during practice and match play.
