What is the ArenA?

The ArenA, renamed Johan Cruijff ArenA in 2018, is a stadium located in Amsterdam Zuidoost. It is the largest stadium in the Netherlands. During matches, it can accommodate 55,865 spectators, and during concerts, up to 71,000 people. There are eleven entrances, A to M, with the main entrance at E. 

In the Netherlands, the ArenA is best known as the home stadium of the Ajax football team in Amsterdam. It also hosts home matches for the Dutch national football team. Additionally, other significant football matches, major events, and concerts occasionally take place there. 

The steep stands of the building (37 degrees) provide a good view for all spectators. The roof can be opened or closed and is equipped with solar panels.

What to do at the ArenA?

The Johan Cruijff ArenA is a multifunctional building. In addition to football matches for which you can purchase tickets, several major concerts by renowned artists are held here every year. Artists such as Coldplay, Metallica, and Bruce Springsteen have performed concerts here. Finally, a portion of the skyboxes is rented as offices or conference spaces. 

You may also want to park at the ArenA to attend a stadium tour. Night tours, VIP tours, tours for children, and guided tours are also available. 

What attractions are near the ArenA? 

Even if you don't have a football match, concert, or Johan Cruijff Arena tour planned, there's plenty to do here. Within walking distance, you'll find the AFAS Live concert and event hall, the Ziggo Dome concert hall, and the Pathé ArenA cinema. Additionally, you can visit the Villa ArenA shopping mall, the Amsterdamse Poort shopping center, and the ArenA Park.   

You can also park at the ArenA and then take public transportation to other parts of the city. The ArenA offers its stadium tour as a combination ticket with two other popular attractions elsewhere in the city.

How to get to the ArenA?

By car, you can reach the Johan Cruijff ArenA via the A2. Take the exit Transferium/Ouderkerk aan de Amsterl/Amsterdam Zuidoost. Amsterdam Bijlmer station is also just minutes away. In addition to trains, metro lines 50 and 54 also stop here. But beware: if you need to go to entrances A, B, C, D, or K, get off at Strandvliet metro station instead of Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA metro and train station, so you don't have to walk too far. Since Bijlmer ArenA bus station is the main bus station in Amsterdam Zuidoost, many regional, city, and night buses stop there, and it is connected to the R-net. 

Wherever you want to go, parking at the ArenA and then traveling by public transport is a good idea.
