The Municipality of Amsterdam has announced the name change of the square in front of the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. The square which is now named Stadium Square (Stadionplein) will be changed to Johan Cruijffplein (Johan Cruyff Square).
Mrs Danny Cruyff: “Johan had a lot with the Olympic Stadium and the region around it. In the past he played a lot of important matches for both Ajax and the Dutch national team in the Olympic Stadium. Later he visited the area a lot having the offices of both his Foundation (Cruyff Foundation) and Institute (Cruyff Institute) which are located there. In addition, we lived in the neighborhood. We are very happy and honored that the Stadionplein will be named after Johan.
