Digital Ajax enter the Amsterdam ArenA for the first time

This spring, top Eurpean football players will enter the virtual playing grounds of their clubs. Ajax and Codemasters now reveal images of Ajax players from the game Ajax Club Football.

The game will come on the market in the spring of 2003 for PlayStation 2. Codemasters will bring out fifteen different Club Football games, each representing a European top team. Beside Ajax, clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid en AC Milan have their own version.

The Club Football development team of Codemasters is currently busy with recreating the most impressive football stadiums in Europe, such as the ArenA. All the games' matches will take place in exact replicas for which construction plans and photographic material serve as reference points. There will be an instant replay camera and ten different in-game camera images will alternate to picture the action on the pitch in television style.
