Last Sunday Naomi and I went to our first live Ajax match at the Ajax Stadium (Amsterdam Arena).

It was great fun. We took the metro to get there, and met other fans along the way. Naomi bought her hat especially for the occasion.


We were seated right up the top (the cheap seats), but the view was excellent as we were so high.

Game on

It was very loud with the fans going nuts and singing songs. At some points someone would shout something over a megaphone and it would set off a whole stream of chants that another section of the crowd would answer.

Songs were played over the loudspeakers before the match and during the chorus the volume was cut out as to allow the fans to sing on their own. I wish I knew the song!

Now thats a flag!

Ajax won 3-1 and played well. The fans were happy.


Hup Ajax!
