Wigan Athletic have unveiled their new away kit for the 2009/2010 season in honour of the famous Netherlands side from the 1978 World Cup.

Wigan’s new away kit is orange with black trim, and black shorts. Designed and manufactured by Vandanel, the new away kit celebrates the year that Wigan entered the Football League (1978) as well as the Dutch home kit from that year.

The Dutch connection at Wigan includes club captain Mario Melchiot and Daniel de Ridder. Plus, new Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is renowned for his Spanish style of football that emulates the Dutch style — lots of fluid passing of the ball on the pitch instead of the hit and hope of old English football.

“It’s a nice design and obviously players like Daniel (de Ridder) and myself will appreciate the reference it also holds to such a great team,” said Mario Melchiot. “The new manager we have certainly values the importance of keeping possession and working our way around teams so hopefully it’ll have a positive influence on us.”

The new away kit will be worn for the very first time in tonight’s pre-season friendly versus Preston North End and will be available for purchase on Thursday 13th August, two days before the Latics kick off their season away to Aston Villa.
