A sticker collection of the Dutch Eredivisie has been released again in January 2019 after three years of absence. The last album was produced by the supermarket Plus in 2015/2016. This year its competitor Albert Heijn released the collection with a comeback after three albums published between 2009 and 2011.
The result is a successful album including all the 18 clubs of the Eredivisie with a special section dedicated to the Dutch Women National Team. The particular horizontal layout is inspired by the last Albert Heijn collection released in 2011. Graphics of stickers and team pages are excellent. The album include facts, quotes, photos of stadiums and home/away kits of each club. A dedicated app allows for accessing special contents of the Eredivisie teams.
Clubs are shown in alphabetical order, with 15 stickers each displaced over four pages: club badge (shiny sticker), team photo (two stickers), the coach and 11 players. Pages of Feyenoord and PSV include two special stickers: the KNVB Cup and the Championship trophy won in the season 2017/2018 by Feyenoord and PSV, respectively.
The last part of the album goes under the title "Hunt like the Orange lionesses" (Jaag zoals de Oranje leeuwinnen) and it is all about the Dutch Women National Team. These five pages are completed by 20 stickers: the National badge (shiny sticker), the team photo (two stickers), the coach and 16 players.
