PSV won the Dutch league 1996/1997 with 77 points, four more than Feyenoord. Ajax got only the fourth place with 61 points. The top scorer of the season was Luc Nilis (PSV) with 21 goals.
The official sticker collection of the season, Voetbal 97, is the 20th Panini Voetbal album since the first edition (Voetbal 78). The album begins with the contents and an introductory page including three stickers: the league logo, the title winners 1996 (Ajax, shiny sticker) and the cup winners 1996 (PSV, shiny sticker). The clubs are then shown following the classification order of the previous season. Hence, Ajax is the first club, followed by PSV and Feyenoord. For the first 10 clubs there are 25 stickers displaced over 6 pages. In the first page there are the shiny badge sticker and the team photo stickers. In the following three pages the squad is presented with 18 player stickers. In the remaining two pages there are statistics and five shiny stickers of top players in action. The last eight clubs of the league have got only 17 stickers over four pages: the shiny badge, the team photo, and 15 players.
In the last part of the album the International players of the Eredivisie 1996/1997 are presented with 7 stickers of players in action: Dani, Degryse, McKinnon, Tobiasen, Larsson, Tomasson, Korneev, and Babangida. In the last page of the album, the list with the 300 best Eredivisie topscorers of all times is included, together with the shiny action stickers of Litmanen and Nilis.
