Ajax have released a new away kit for next season and betcha-by-golly-wow it’s a bit of a stunner.

It’s inspired by the stone cold classic navy and red number the Dutch club wore while beating AC Milan in the 1995 Champions League final – which, coming just a few weeks before their imminent appearance in the 2017 Europa League final, feels pleasantly fitting.

Just like the ’95 vintage, the new blue strip features a graphic print, though it’s slightly more subtle than it’s predecessor, with the red detailing limited to the stripes across the shoulders…


Sweet Jesus, ain’t she purdy?

Legend has it, if you stare long enough into that pattern, a 3D ‘Magic Eye’ image of Louis van Gaal eventually emerges.

      Yeah, i totally agree with that. It the charisma that makes ajax stand out in the modern world of football. I mean check out their style and attitude. And I am not even getting started on the glorious history mmmmhmmmm. Perfect USP! Ajax is simply superior in every manner. Imagine all those beautiful kits they came up with in the last 400 years. Nobody else on the planet would have been capable of producing such masterclass without failing on a single occasion. What should also be added is that incredible weed thing going on in the city of amsterdam. Timeless classic. God, i would definitely consider having intercourse with ajax if it ever turned into a human being or sheep. Yours sincerely everyone.
