The lion has always been a powerful symbol in Dutch culture, and it roars from the depths of the Dutch national team’s Nike collection in 2020.
“It was very important to create a collection that was extremely nationally proud,” said Scott Munson, Nike’s vice president of football apparel. It’s the first time.”
Derived from the Dutch national emblem and the Football Association coat of arms, the pride, strength and courage of the lion are celebrated in an innovative home kit design that includes a unique knitted pattern depicting the face of a fearless lion. Orange means that the silhouette of the lion gives a firm and tasteful impression. The lion standing out from the jersey will also help the Dutch men’s and women’s teams to bravely present themselves to the world.
The lion is fully integrated into the fabric of the world-renowned Netherlands soccer jersey and is outlined by a strong black V-neck and black side strips embossed with the KNVB text theme. The orange shorts and socks are embellished with black detailing to complete the overall look.
Based on a same template, the Netherlands away jersey features a stylish and confident design, including a buttoned collar with orange piping. Lateral orange stripes are zigzagged on two sides of the torso.
