Football Legends Of Ajax, Amsterdam
Amsterdam, the largest city in the Netherlands is also its capital. Furthermore, not only is this city the political capital of the country but also the financial, cultural and, very much debatably, its football capital.
The city is home to, arguably, the biggest club in Dutch football i.e. AFC Ajax. AFC Ajax, as any avid football fan would be more than willing to tell you, is a club that has dominated the European football circles for a long time in the past. This domination was not only based around the production of legendary footballers but also in terms of the number of trophies that the club has amounted since its inception.
The success of the club is portrayed by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics calling it the seventh most successful European club of all time. Even though the club has not won anything in Europe since its Champions League victory in the year of 1995, it is still regarded as one of the most legendary football clubs in Europe.
If you are travelling through Europe then, apart from the generic list, two things that you must go to Amsterdam for is the stadium of AFC Ajax i.e. the Amsterdam Arena and the youngsters of the club itself. Although the latter is something that only football aficionados would be able to appreciate, the former is something that should impress even a non football aware tourist. The legendary club of Ajax is now known as a club that cannot stop producing incomparable talents amongst the football world.
In terms of the stadium, the city possesses one of the few state of the art stadiums on the continent containing a retractable roof. It seats a whopping number of almost 53,000 people. Effectively, all of this means that if you are travelling through Europe then you need to visit the country of Netherlands and the wonderful football city of Amsterdam.
Irrespective of everything that the city is known for, its stadium is one of the prime attractions for people interested in sports. Therefore, before you visit the city you need to book or arrange for tickets to the next AFC Ajax match. Simultaneously, even though the area around the Arena is widely known for having enough accommodations for travelling fans or simply tourists, you should reserve your rooms well in advance because the rooms may be hard to get during match days and sport events evenings.
All the bookings including the tickets for the match and rooms at the hotel can be made online through their respective websites or directly through agents. Even so, online booking is recommended because it leaves you in charge of all your decisions about the location of your seats and the quality of the rooms that you would be occupying.
Thus, an ideal day in the life of a sports tourist would be to be in Amsterdam to view the young team of AFC Ajax which is brimming with talent, in their amazing stadium known as the Amsterdam Arena.
