NAARDEN – Starting in the 21/22 season, Nike will be the new clothing supplier for the Naarden hockey club. The biggest sports brand in the world and the Naarden hockey club recently designed the new clothes together. Distribution and sale will be done entirely online through its own HC Naarden environment on HockeyDirect.
The collaboration between the three parties (HC Naarden, Nike and HockeyDirect) is concluded for a minimum of three years. The other sponsors of the HC Naarden jersey are from the same period: Rabobank, Nienaber Makelaars and Indicia.
The Naarden Hockey Club will take the competition by storm in the new season Nike uniforms. The home kit remains largely the same in terms of design and colors. The original HC Naarden colors return with the exterior kit. There will be new Nike shorts, skirts, hoodies, coach jackets and tracksuits.
Marc Van Wijk, President of HC Naarden: “We are extremely proud to be the first hockey club in Europe to be able to connect a world player like Nike to our club. Nike is not only a very popular brand among our young players, but is also known for its reliability and innovative spirit. These fundamental values are perfectly in line with the wishes and ambitions of our club. In addition, we are taking a big step forward with fast delivery via HockeyDirect. We therefore look forward to a fruitful collaboration with these parties. “
By the way, the hockey club supports the local retailers – “with whom we have worked for the past few years” – with a warm heart. Van WIjk: “However, we also believe that online sales are in tune with the times and our club. After a long selection process, the combination of Nike and HockeyDirect became the unanimous winner on the board.

“In the United States, Nike has had success with hockey apparel for quite some time. It is now Europe’s turn. As a great progressive club, HC Naarden is an ideal starting point to set foot on Dutch soil. We do this with our partner HockeyDirect and therefore opt for an online distribution and sales model. In our opinion, HC Naarden, Nike and HockeyDirect are a great game, ”says Jesse Herrema, who provided Nike’s advice.
David Purmer of HockeyDirect: “HC Naarden will have its own online environment where members can order all Nike clothing and products from HC Naarden. We deliver this to HC member Naarden at home the next working day without shipping charges. We provide fitted models to the club, so if anyone has any doubts about the size, this can be adjusted at the club in advance.
