Nico’s Tip: Amsterdam ArenA


We ask our Volk to share their favourite Amsterdam spot. This week: Nico de Jong our banqueting manager, shares his spot for some football and architecture: The Amsterdam Arena. Nico: “It’s really an impressive place.”


The Amsterdam ArenA has been home to Amsterdam’s football club AFC Ajax since 1996. “I was there at the opening, when I was 12. They had this whole show with boats on a fake sea and one of our famous singers Trijntje Oosterhuis performing and they unveiled the stadium… I was so impressed, it’s huge and fancy.” Nico reminisces with childhood glee.

The stadium has a retractable roof and seats 53 thousand people. As well as football matches, they hold concerts and every year they host the electronic dance ‘experience’ Sensation. Go there to watch a match, take a tour, or maybe your favourite singer is playing.


Who’s Nico?
Nico is our Banqueting manager, dealing with all the meetings and events. Obviously a football fan, he’s also a humble and soft guy, who likes to eat sandwiches filled with everything you could possibly imagine.
