Best spots to watch soccer/football games in Amsterdam

Where to watch Ajax?

It has been a while since Ajax played so well as a last season. Although you prefer to be in the stadium, the tickets are often sold out quickly. Fortunately, there are enough cafés in our cozy city that broadcast the competition. We highlight a few cozy places for you!

* TIP: Be on time in your favorite cafe. During the past few games, many bars had already filled up a full hour before the game and you could barely enter. So make sure you arrive on time.

Bar leijten

Located on the corner of the Schinkelkade, Bar Leijten is always the right place for you. In this cozy café, they ensure that there is always enough beer, so that you can watch the game in a relaxed way. In good weather they sometimes want to put the screen on the terrace. With a nice evening sun, it’s fantastic!
