100,000 Ajax fans sing their club anthem after Europa League final defeat

Probably the highlight of Ajax’s night, to be fair.

INSTEAD OF SITTING at home sulking that they weren’t in Stockholm, an estimated 100,000 ticketless Ajax fans watched last night’s Europa League final on the big screens in Amsterdam city centre.

The game didn’t exactly go as they had hoped but, after Manchester United’s 2-0 win, they stuck around to show their support with a powerful rendition of the club’s anthem.

For those of you who’ve never heard Dit is mijn club before, here’s the Google Translate version:

This is my club, my ideal,

This is the most beautiful club of all.

Here is my heart, my joy, my sorrow,

It can thaw, it can freeze

We can win or lose,

But there is no better club than this.
