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 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.
Nike also collaborated with the legendary Dutch graphic designer and typographer Wim Crouwel to create new names and numbers. Crouwel used the back of the Dutch home jersey as a canvas to specially create a modern font, which also possesses a retro aesthetic. The lines inside the numbers are reminiscent of the numbers famously seen in football in the 1970s.
