This stadium was previously known as the Amsterdam Arena. It was officially renamed in 2018, in honor of the legendary Dutch footballer, Johan Cruijff, after he died in March 2016. It is the largest stadium in the country and home of the association football club AFC Ajax since 1996.
The stadium is also a popular venue for international matches, concerts and dance festivals. Stadium tour is possible too. Check website for info. https://www.johancruijffarena.nl/home-1.htm

*Cruijff is the traditional Dutch spelling while Cruyff is the international spelling.
