During games, the island is also featured all around the stadium as well as on (inter)national television.
In the course of the visit, this successful collaboration between Curaçao and AFC Ajax in the area of sports will also acquire a more social element, through youth soccer clinics to continue to promote the development of local talent under our youths. The program also includes seminars for coaches and staff, an Ajax training event, and visits to the Johan Cruijff Court and Jong Holland’s facilities, among others.
On Friday, May 20, 8:00 p.m., the visit will be capped off with a friendly match between AFC Ajax and the Curaçao Team at the Ergilio Hato stadium (SDK). The Curaçao Team is made up of professional, European-based players with Curaçaoan roots, joined by members of the island’s current champion, the Jong Holland soccer team.
