Eredivisie Album 2016 (Plus)

It was in the season 2010/2011 that the last sticker album of the Eredivisie was published (AH Eredivisie 2011). After 5 years, with big surprise the supermarket chain Plus released an official sticker collection of the Eredivisie. The album opens with some general introductory pages with no stickers and then the 18 Eredivisie teams are shown in alphabetical order. Each team displaced over two pages includes 12 stickers: 11 players and the club badge. On the team page there are also details of the club, the stadium, and the home/away kit of the season. No other sections are included, therefore the set counts 216 stickers. Player stickers are innovative, with personal and professional details of the players and all their signatures. 

Due to this long break and the young spirit of the Dutch competition, this album includes many rookie stickers. Ajax has a talented squad with the forward Milik, the technical El Ghazi, the complete midfielder Bazoer and the defenders Tete and Riedewald. Top scorer of the league is Vincent Janssen, young forward of AZ. In Feyenoord the defender Kongolo is already requested by European clubs. Jetro Willems was one of the most effective players of PSV who reached the round of 16 in the Champions League this season. Twente has one of the youngest team with the fabulous Hakim Ziyech (17 goals this season so far), the Peruvian Renato Tapia (who was transferred to Feyenoord during the winter market), and Ter Avest (born on 1997, but already a regular player in the squad). FC Utrecht includes the prolific striker Sebastien Haller (17 goals so far) and the American Rubio Rubin. Vitesse cooperates with Chelsea receiving the loans of Isaiah Brown, Lewis Baker, and Solanke (1997, 7 goals this season but unfortunately not included in this collection). Also the Albanian Rashica (1996, 8 goals) deserves to be mention.
