Club biography

The 2015 champions have taken on a new look for the 2016/17 season following the amalgamation of Oranje Zwart and EMHC and they delighted their fans at the KO16 in Eindhoven with some superb performances.

They beat Dutch rivals AH&BC Amsterdam before seeing off Atlètic Terrassa in the KO8 in front of sold out crowds each day. It sets up a first ever meeting with Wimbledon in the EHL.

Since the KO16, HC Oranje-Rood missed out on reaching the Dutch Hoofdklasse playoffs, finishing fifth in the regular season following a dramatic draw with SV Kampong, a last minute penalty stroke eliminating them.

It means that the EHL is their only chance at silverware this season and they are the last remaining former champion – albeit when in their Oranje-Rood guise.

They have plenty of star men to draw on including Bob de Voogd – who scored their key goals in 2015 – Jelle Galema, Muhammad Rizwan, Pirmin Blaak and Argentina's gold medalist Agustin Mazzilli. Austrian playmaker Benjamin Stanzl has been brilliant performer while former world player of the year Robert van der Horst always provides an inspirational presence.
