SSK Sponsors Netherlands Women’s Softball Team At Summer Games In Beijing

Osaka, Japan...SSK announced today that they are supplying a new uniform design for the Dutch National Softball team when it competes at the Beijing Summer Games. SSK was appointed official supplier for the Netherlands Women’s Softball Team back on January 1, 2008. Since that time SSK has supplied the team with uniforms for all international play, together with other SSK performance apparel items.

The Dutch team is representing the European region and will be competing for a medal with teams from Australia , Canada, Chinese Taipei, Japan, USA, Venezuela and the hosting country of China. This is the first appearance by the Dutch team in 12 years.

The uniform shirt and pants are made in Japan from sheen 100% high tech polyester tricot, the same fabric used in competitive play soccer uniforms. The fabric is sleek and feather light, yet surprisingly durable. The two-button placket shirt with raglan sleeves is paired with short pants. “NEDERLAND” (the Dutch name for The Netherlands) is embroidered in the Dutch national color of orange on the shirt chest. A BLOCK font is used signifying strength. Their home uniform is white, their road uniform is orange.

From all of us at SSK, our best wishes go to manager, Lisa Kelly and her fine players along with our hopes that they can bring home a medal to their homeland. We know that the Dutch people are proud of both their Men’s Baseball and Women’s Softball teams.

Our International sponsorship program of Women’s Fast Pitch Softball Team began with the Dutch, when we provided uniforms and equipment to The Netherlands softball team for the Summer Games in Atlanta in 1996.
