National Soccer Team – Ajax
A friendly match between Curaçao’s national soccer team and Ajax 1 will cap off the visit, preparing our national heroes for the next round of the Nations Cup, to be held in June. Playing against a world-class team with such a record will be an exciting challenge for the national team. The friendly match will be organized in close cooperation with the Curaçao Football Federation.
On Curaçao, Ajax requires little introduction. The team is record champion and the current Dutch Eredivisie champion. The team is currently competing for the 2021-2022 title. On April 17, Ajax will be playing against PSV in the KNVB cup finals. Ajax is a four-time winner of the Champions League, reached the Europa League finals in 2017, and the Champions League semi-finals in 2019. The club is also known for producing talents, and their youth academy ‘De Toekomst’ is one of the most prestigious worldwide.
