The 2016–17 KNVB Cup was the 99th season of the annual Dutch national football cup competition. It started on September 20, 2016 with the first of six rounds and ended on April 30, 2017 with the final played at De Kuip in Rotterdam.

This edition is notable for several unicums, which includes holding the first ever test in an official match of a top tier-domestic competition of the Video assistant referee-system.[1] Anouar Kali holds the distinction of becoming the first ever player to receive a red card after an intervention from the video referee in the first round-game between Ajax and his team Willem II.[2]

The defending champions were Feyenoord from the Eredivisie, after beating FC Utrecht 2–1 in the final in the previous season on April 24, 2016.

The winner will automatically qualify for the group stage of the 2017-18 edition of the UEFA Europa League. The winner will also participate in the 2017 edition of the Johan Cruyff Shield, the Dutch Supercup match at the start of next season between the Cup winner and the champions of the Eredivisie, Feyenoord.

Vitesse defeated AZ by 2-0 in the final to win its first ever major trophy in the 124-year history of the club.[3]
