The foundation of AFC Ajax

At the end of the nineteenth century, after an enthusiastic start Ajax played a fairly anonymous role. Following the many small clubs that mushroomed around 1900, the original triumvirate of Stempel, Dade and Reeser decided to send out a letter calling upon interested people to consider the foundation of a 'completely new football club'. They wanted to put a definitive end to the old unsuccessful Ajax.



At a historical meeting on 18 March 1900 in the 'Café Oost-Indië' in the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam, a new football club was founded with the (this time correctly spelled) name of 'Football Club Ajax'. The club joined the Amsterdam Football Association (Amsterdamse Voetbal Bond/AVB) and rented a playing field in Amsterdam Noord for its home games.

Amsterdam ArenA
Ajax - Amsterdam repræsenterer en af de største talentfabrikker, som fodbolden har set. Talrige er de unge spillere, der har udviklet international klasse og i flere tilfælde verdensklasse.
Johan Cruyff, Johan Neeskens, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit for at nævne de 4 største. Hvad med Frank Arnesen og Søren Lerby? - Talrige talenter bliver hentet og kultiveret, såvel indfødte som især surinamesere. - Det - og så en god kapital - er grundlaget for Ajax´ fortsatte placering i den europæiske topliga. - Amsterdam ArenA er en herlig kulisse.
