With the sun blazing down and a perfect pitch, conditions at the De Toekomst tarining ground were excellent for Alfred Schreuder's team. Following a comprehensive warm-up, Ajax players were put through some tough training drills in the run-up to the match against the current number seven in the league table.
The fixture against FC Groningen is their first home game in the new Eredivisie season. Last season, Ajax – FC Groningen ended up 3-0, thanks to goals from Edson Álvarez, Antony and Noussair Mazraoui.
Our photographer was there at the final training session and took some magnificent shots.
As of this season, not only Ziggo but also GigaNet will be displayed on the Ajax shirt. GigaNet is the powerful network from Ziggo. As a fun way to bring attention to the partnership, we’ve made a video together with our main sponsor with Ajax players going 'all-out' on the GigaNet from Ziggo during a BBQ.
