“Unable to create a good atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

This stadium is not that impressive. From the outside it looks more like a UFO than a football stadium. From the inside it looks a lot better but then the atmosphere in the stadium is really below average. Even if the supporters do their best to sound loud it is just not waving around properly. The quality of the announcements is also not great and barely understandable. Also during concerts and during massive dance events when I visited this stadium the sound was often terribly off.

“Roger waters-The wall !! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

I went to see this in September, ive also saw this concert in milan.

But was much cheaper to see it in Amsterdam! And it was just as amazing.
As usual in places like this food , drink etc is extremely expensive but we should all expect that by now.
I would love to go back to see another concert or a football game!.
Staff were nice.
Id say you are better ordering a taxi or something to pick you up if thats how your planning on getting home as there is massive ques of people also waiting.we luckily ordered one.
Great experience

“Ajax v PSV Eindhoven 19/01/14”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

My fifth visit to an Ajax match...and the experience was as good as ever. The fans are good spirited and get right behind Ajax all the way through the match. After some initial ticket problems (OAD Reizen going bust) I was able to obtain a seat in Vak 117! Good location

Great atmosphere............ I'll be back many times again :)

Great athmosphere in this magnificent Stadium. Supporters are brilliant, chanting before match was great. Very modern and after they had Problems with the pitch in early stages they managed the solve this Problem as well.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

A tour of stadium rather than Ajax the club its self. It is a stunning stadium, and we were allowed to go to the top of it due small size of the group, and the shows the running of the club.
