Guests dine at pop-up restaurant on pitch at Ajax’s Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam


FANS can finally sit down and enjoy themselves in Ajax’s stadium – not to watch any football but to dine out on the pitch itself.

Supporters can eat their dinner in a pop-up restaurant at Ajax’s Johan Cruyff Arena with tables laid out along the edge of the playing surface.

The Langs de Lijn eatery opened for business on Wednesday and punters can enjoy two culinary three-course menus provided by decorated chefs.

Customers get the full experience with a peek into the dressing room also included in the hospitality provided by the club.

Prices range from £50 to nearly £100 for the fancy stadium grub which you get to enjoy beside the hallowed turf.
