Nike Unveils 125th Anniversary Dutch Home Kit

Featuring bold new design details, the 2014 Dutch home kit captures the unique spirit and enduring pride of Dutch football while offering the best in performance innovation. 

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of the KNBV (Royal Dutch Football Association), the 2014 jersey sports a striking new crest. This features an enlarged white lion to symbolize a new era in Dutch football and the team’s core values of simplicity, honor and unity.
The lion has been used on The Dutch kits since 1907. In the 1960s and '70s, it was shown as large and free, but in black, while in recent times, only its head has been shown wearing a crown. For 2014, this proud and rampant lion is white and larger to represent the pride of Holland and the unity of its players. 

The new Dutch jersey is in traditional orange with a modern V-neck collar, and provides a classic and clean canvas on which to showcase the new crest. Beneath the crest is the Royal Dutch Football Association’s founding year of 1889, along with 2014 to commemorate its 125th anniversary.
