If you like your tour to be centred around the logistics of a stadium then this may be of more interest to you. If however like me you are more interested in the football club then you may find this lacking. The tour of the stadium itself is perfectly adequate, you will find yourself wandering around, media, press and control... More

The arena was built in 1996 but it still smells like a newborn stadium. In the guided tour, we have information about how they invest a lot of the profits in keeping the development of the venue. The result: it's a fantastic place, even better that the new brazilian stadiums for the last World Cup. It's easily reachable within public... More

This is the home of the dutch best football team AJAX Amsterdam! The team with the most prices and best supporters in the Netherlands. Of you are able visit a game of Amsterdams pride.

As big football fans this was a must do when visiting Amsterdam. Was very impressed with the tour guide. Clearly very knowledgable and willing to answer questions. Made it all interesting. Lots of information about history of Ajax and the arena. Got to go pitch side and in the highest tier of the stadium, press room, saw the changing rooms... More

The Amsterdam ArenA is the host of all the home games off Ajax Amsterdam and has a capacity over 50.000 fans. For people who haven't been to a lot of football stadiums beware : when you first enter the stadium and get a glance of the field you will be dazzled with amazement. The stadium has everything you expect it... More

The pitch was covered for non-football events. A shame in a way. However the guide was enthusiastic and had a wealth of tales. Travelled out on the 54 metro. An easy walk from the station to the stadium and a large eating and shopping centre in the other direction. Got anonymous 1 hour tickets x2 for the metro as we... More

Went to see the 'mighty' Ajax in action on a recent trip to Amsterdam and absolutely loved the ArenA. the atmosphere on match day was brilliant - not in the slightest intimidating for two clearly non-Ajax fans - and the organisation and seating was also fantastic. The only thing that 'let the side down', was the side on the pitch.... More

On a recent trip to Amsterdam, we realised that we'd be passing by the famous home of Ajax on a train ride, so decided to get off at the station nearby and went down to take a look, went in the shop, had a drink in a nearby bar, all nice and very memorable. I suppose it being a fine... More
