    Ajax Museum, Amsterdam
    AFC Ajax (Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax), the most famous Dutch soccer club, has been established in 1900 and throughout its rich history their squad has won Champions League (1994), an unofficial World Club Cup (Intercontinental Cup) and several times the UEFA Cup. The club maintains a small museum at the entry to the E sector of its modern stadium - Amsterdam ArenA, where all the trophies are exhibited, as well as many memorabilia’s.

    Ajax ArenA
    The home stadium of Ajax is impressive in its architecture. Like many modern stadiums, it has a retractable roof, which can be opened when it does not rain. After its construction in 1996, the 51 thousand seats stadium has not been very lucky for Ajax. Additionally there were serious problems with the natural grass pitch of the stadium – it had to be changed four times a year, as the grass did not grow well without wind. All these problems have been now solved – huge fan ventilators create artificial wind and special grass seeds were developed, which grow better inside the stadium. Also the Ajax team is today based on young players, with great hope for the club’s future.

    The museum
    Ajax Museum is a must for every Ajax supporter or a football fanatic. Historical photos show an incredible career the club has made in the Netherlands and abroad, with Ajax winning 25 important international prizes and 29 Dutch championships. The museum features Ajax Hall of Fame, an impressive showcase with all cups and prizes, as well as the Ajax History Tour – a visual history of the club.

During the tour, you will be able to see the press room where press conferences take place before each match, visit the control room of the stadium, look at the (turkeyarena.com) pitch from the ArenA’s highest seat, observe the first Ajax team getting fit on the nearby training field.
