Patrick Pothuizen (born 15 May 1972 in Culemborg, Gelderland) is a former Dutch footballer. Pothuizen was a defender who was born in Culemborg and made his debut in professional football, being part of the Vitesse Arnhem squad in the 1992–93 season. He also played for Dordrecht'90 and FC Twente before joining NEC Nijmegen for the second time in his career.
To date, Pothuizen owns the record of having had most yellow cards as an Eredivisie Player. His final yellow card, his 84th, is also his most notorious yellow card as critics in media claimed that it should have been a red card. In the incident Pothuizen controversially put his hand to the ball which prevented Luis Suarez from a goalscoring opportunity. After he received the yellow card, Pothuizen pulled his football shirt up in order to show the crowd his white shirt with yellow text marking saying "84", referring to his yellow card record.
