The Eredivisie kicks off on the evening of Friday, 13 August. Next day, Ajax will be welcoming league graduates N.E.C., who won promotion back into the top league after a four-season absence. Kick-off is scheduled for 21:00.
Feyenoord - Ajax just before the winter break
We have to wait until well into the first half of the season before the first of the "Classic" derbies. Ajax will be visiting Feyenoord in the seventeenth round - last but one game before the winter break. On Sunday, 24 October, it will be the turn of Ajax v PSV, and on Sunday, 12 December, Ajax v AZ.
The Johan Cruijff Shield is due to be played on Saturday, 7 August, at 20:00. That depends on how well PSV play in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. If the Eindhoven players don't get through, the traditional start to the season will move to Sunday, 8 August at 18:00.
These are the league matches for Ajax. Please note: subject to change.
