The old Ajax stadium

The old Ajax stadium called De Meer was where Johan signed his debut professional contract with Ajax? What was his influence on the team back then? This stadium was where Ajax wrote history winning the European Cup (nowadays the UEFA Champions League) three times in succession. We show you the symbol of the old centrespot of this authentic stadium and streets such as Wembleylaan, Delle Alpihof, Bernabeuhof and Anfield Road.

Cruijff Court

We show you the Cruyff Court close to the house where he lived. Those courts are now located all over the world, from Japan to the USA. This is an initiative from Cruyff after his career. To offer(disabled)children an opportunity to play outside together.
