Ajax is on a winning streak in the Eredivisie. After victories against NEC (1-2) and RKC (2-3), Ajax beat Sparta on Saturday. The final score in the Johan Cruijff ArenA was 2-1. Brian Brobbey and Steven Bergwijn scored on behalf of Ajax.
Every month, players of Ajax Men’s and Women’s teams receive over 1,500 hate messages on social media. But sadly it’s not just our players. These types of messages are part of a growing trend that impact millions of people online. In an effort to silence social hate, Ajax will wear a jersey with three white dots instead of names during their matches this weekend. The dots represent the universal sign for silence, as well as the menu icon you select to report hate messages and associated accounts.
Steven Berghuis recently joined the Club of 100. The left-footed Ajax player looks back on his first hundred official matches in the service of Amsterdam, standing in front of the photo wall. "Primarily, the initial weeks were tense, but ultimately, I am happy and proud of how I performed."
Ajax were making final preparations Friday lunchtime for the match against Sparta at home. John van 't Schip's team will face the Rotterdam team in their own Johan Cruyff ArenA this Saturday evening, kicking off at 18:45.
"Gosh, that is a long time ago", John Bosman says, smiling after seeing the picture of the first Ajax team he played in. It’s a picture from the 1982/1983 season, over forty years ago. Despite it being a while ago, the players in the picture are no strangers to the former centre forward.
Ajax got through the remainder of the match with RKC Waalwijk successfully. The match was suspended in September after 84 minutes with the Amsterdam team up by 2-3. There was no further score in the last part of the match. Watch the highlights of the entire match here.
