Total bullsh!te, where are you getting those figures?
It seems to be a real number but I think the number was a total of 300,000 hockey players in Holland at all levels and it's the second biggest sport.

It's not a real number at all, there are not 300000 females playing in Holland let alone that number being profession, it was plucked from someone's swiss.

Nobody said female or professional, just hockey players. This link says 185,000 are members of the federation.

And this one from 2016

Field hockey trails only soccer in interest in the Netherlands. The nation's hockey federation said some 253,000 people play club hockey there — roughly one in 67 residents.

So, how do I get the gig for redesigning their kit? I know the measuring up will take ages, but.

But didn't delete your comment that nobody mentioned female or professional when they did, you're slow, try to catch up.
