Ajax - AZ cancelled

The match between Ajax and AZ, scheduled for Sunday 6 March, has been cancelled. Reason is the great amount of snow and ice on the roof of the Amsterdam ArenA. This could create a dangerous situation for supporters and players.

The police, the fire department, Ajax and the ArenA have decided to cancel the match to exclude all possible risks.

The police closed off the immediate area around the Amsterdam ArenA on Saturday because of the danger of snow and ice on the roof of the stadium that comes down now and then.

Some of the glass plates on lower areas of the stadium have been broken by falling ice.

Match tickets will remain valid. A new match date will be announced as soon as possible.
