An informative, interesting tour suitable for all! Gives an insight into what goes on behind the scenes at the football club, the history of the club and provides a number of photo opportunities throughout. Free entry with Iamsterdam cards, I would definitely recommend ⚽️

A must visit when in Amsterdam. It`s a grand place espically if you`re a football fan. We went to watch a Europa cup game and really glad we did. Was a wonderful experience sitting there with the loyal fans chanting away. Would certianly visit again if I had the chance.

We went to an AFC Ajax game in December. Full capacity - fans singing, whistling, cheering etc. Not great organization in getting fans in the arena to their seats - lots of pushing and shoving and too many bottlenecks getting people to scan their tickets. Go early!

Great atmosphere, great stadium and a good game of football too. The stadium was easy to reach by train and there were enough things to do around the ground. The atmosphere at the match itself was pretty good from start to finish despite not being sold out. It was really good venue for watching the football. Afterwards we went to... More

Not a football fan at all but my sister wanted to go and it was free on the IAMS cards. I was so much fun, very interesting if you like football and even if you don't. Our guide spoke in English and he was very friendly and had a great sense of homour. I wouldn't do that tour again butI... More

The Arena is the stadium of the AJAX Football club. A tour in the Arena including the ajax museum is nice to do when its raining. After that you can visit the fanshop. Outside there are some big shops.

One of my favourite football arenas. Easy to get to by metro, with shops, cinema and some restaurants outside offering a quite dynamic environment, unlike Rotterdam's De Kuip for instance. The arena itself is great, with very good viewing even if if you're a bit up as I was for the Ajax-PSV game. Might be a bit crowdy and slow... More

This is Ajax Arena, it is where Ajax football club play their football games. It is a magnificent stadium built in 1996 it has been also used for concerts etc. When inside the view is so clear wherever you seat and the fans create an electric atmosphere. It is located away from the City Centre and easily accessable by car.... More

Being of Dutch heritage I was lucky enough to buy two tickets to watch Ajax play Excelsior. The atmosphere was amazing and we also happy as Ajax won. Transport from the city centre by metro was easy and being a Saturday night it was made for a great night out.
