We made a trip to the city of Zwolle to visit the Jaap Stam Testimonial match yesterday which turned out to be a very nice, but wet event.

Jaap Stam played his testimonial match in the FC Zwolle stadium and a number of big names from Dutch football were there: Stam’s Star-team (The Holland WC 98 Team) played Ajax, coached by Marco van Basten , while the 98 star team was coached by Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.  

The Jaap Stam team, with Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, Michael reiziger, Wim Jonk, Philip Cocu, Clarence Seedorf, Patrick Kluivert, Dennis Bergkamp, Aron Winter, Marc Overmars, Edgar Davids paid their respect to Stam with a 3-3 result. 

To mark the occasion a Jaap Stam Testimonial Shirt made by Hummel (as worn by the players), complete with Stam’s club list and Dutch lion is available as a limited edition through the Japie Stam website.

Great idea. Don\'t know if Jaap Staam needs the dosh but a shirt with the national motif together with all the club badges of the teams he played for is a fine way for a player to bow out at his retirement game. This will likely become a collector\'s item in the years to come and it\'ll be interesting to see if it catches on with other players.
