Ajax received an extended delegation from Sharjah FC last week. The representatives of Ajax's partner club from the United Arab Emirates got a unique behind-the-scenes look at sports complex de Toekomst and the Johan Cruijff ArenA. Ajax has been working closely with Sharjah FC through the Ajax Coaching Academy since 2020.
Ajax and partner club Sharjah FC will continue their partnership. Both parties agreed on a three-year contract extension. The partnership started in 2020. Four experienced Ajax coaches are helping to improve the local youth academy in the United Arab Emirates.
