136 places are reserved for disabled supporters in the stadium. There is space for approximately 70 blind or partially sighted supporters in section 016. On the North and South side, between the first and second ring, 66 additional spots are available for wheelchair users (Sections 812, 816, 825 and 829).
For all of the sections mentioned above, tickets are sold in pairs, for the disabled supporter and his or her companion. It is not possible to issue more than one ticket for companions.
Due to safety regulations, the companion must be at least 18 years of age, and capable of helping and evacuating the disabled person if necessary.
If you use an official guide dog, it is no problem if you have a ticket for section 016. The other spots for disabled spectators are not suitable due to the presence of many other spectators. We also kindly request that you inform us of a dog’s presence prior to the game, so that we can ensure that the stewards are aware of this. You can contact the Fan care department to arrange this.
Disability Club Card
To be eligible for a disability ticket, you must possess a Disability Club Card. In order to request this club card, you need to own a European disability parking card. The Disability Club Card can be requested via this page.

Ajax, the Johan Cruijff ArenA and other partners involved with match organization aim to offer all supporters a customer friendly, safe and trouble-free visit. Misconduct, violence or disturbance have no place in this. In order to ensure this, it is important that visitors respect and follow the rules and regulations. Supporters who violate these rules, and thereby put at risk the safety of other supporters, Ajax’s interest or football in general, or cause general damage or disturbance, will be given a sanction. Ajax, the city of Amsterdam and the public prosecutor exchange information about this.
If you receive a Disability Club Card or purchase a ticket to a game, you automatically accept the KNVB Standard general conditions.
