Holland 2018 Shirts



Netherlands play their home games in strip of orange shirts hence their nickname in Holland of Oranje. The shirt features in one of Europe's best national teams, Holland won the European Championship in 1988, and reached two consecutive World Cup finals, losing both in 1974 and 1978. They also won Euro 88 and finished fourth in the 1998 World Cup. Famous names to have pulled on the Orange shirt of Holland include; Marco Van Basten, Johan Cruyff, Rudd Gullit, Edgar Davids and Ruud Van Nistelrooy, the World Cup still eludes them though.

The Netherlands national football team played their first international against Belgium in Antwerp on the 30th April 1905 winning 4-1. Netherlands famously reached the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final where they played Spain losing 1-0 after extra time afer a goal from Andres Iniesta. Despite all the talent that has played for the Dutch they have never won the FIFA World Cup.

Netherlands have usually had sky blue, black or white away shirts to coincide with their bright orange home shirt.

Holland or The Netherlands are an international team most notably known for wearing orange and for boasting world class internationals including Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie. Holland are nicknamed 'Clockwork Orange' due to the fact that it is the national colour of the country originating from the Coat of Arms of the Dutch founding father Willaim of Orange-Nassau. The home shirts are bright orange and are manufactured by Nike and in their last major tournament the UEFA Euro 2012 they failed to reach the knock-out stage of the tournament coming fourth in a group containing Germany, Portugal and Denmark.

World Cup Kits

Netherlands first played in dark blue with orange socks on their first World Cup appearance in 1934, but have been in their famous 'Oranje' colour combination ever since. To contrast with the bright orange white shorts were implemented. Supplied by Nike, the 2014 World Cup Netherlands home shirt features the nations trademark Oranje colour along with a splash of white trim on the Nike logo and Netherlands crest. An elegant red, white and blue stripe is featured on the back of the neck to represent the national flag of Netherlands.

The away shirt for the 2014 World Cup has an isometric grid pattern of interlocking chevrons, they start as a bright blue at the top and get darker as you moved down the kit becoming imperial purple at the bottom. The blue is signify the Dutch Royal family and this design celebrates the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Dutch Football Association.

In Japan and Korea Republic black shorts became the first choice option while the 2006 FIFA World Cup saw a switch to all orange for the first time and maintained through to their appearance in the final of the 2010 World Cup competition in South Africa.

One of the most notable Netherlands shirts was the shirt which saw the nation reach consecutive finals in 1974 and 1978. The shirt was headlined by Johan Cruyff and it featured black stripes down the arms, white shorts and orange socks making it a classic Netherlands design remembered by many to this day.

One of the most memorable Netherlands home shirts was the one donned by Dutch great Johan Cruyff in the 1974 FIFA World Cup. This Dutch side has gone down in history as one of the best sides to fail winning the World Cup. The shirt idolised future decades of Dutch football where it was orange with black trim on the shoulders.

First having a kit supplier in the early 80's which was adidas, Netherlands have predominantly had that brand as well as Nike and Lotto manufacture their shirts. Their current kit supplier is Nike who have produced their shirts for over a decade.

For all the minor complications with shorts the orange shirt has remained largely untouched throughout the nation's football history with only minor detailing alterations to speak of. The orange shirt of Netherlands is one of the most recognised in world football.
