Abandoned Ajax-Feyenoord game to be completed without fans on Wednesday

Ajax’s league match against Feyenoord over the weekend was abandoned in the second half after home fans threw flares onto the pitch. 

The game was paused twice due to trouble from supporters, and the game was called off in the 56th minute. 

Feyenoord were leading 3-0 when the match was abandoned at the Johan Cruyff Arena. 

BBC Sport is now reporting the suspended De Klassieker will resume on Wednesday behind closed doors. 

However, Ajax have reportedly rejected the Dutch FA’s calls to finish the match on September 27. They want the game to be rescheduled for early November. 

Ajax are the most successful club in the Netherlands, with 36 Eredivisie titles to their name. 

However, they have seen a considerable decline in their fortunes since Erik ten Hag left his role as manager in 2022. 

After finishing a disappointing third last season, Ajax have now made a poor start to the 2023-24 league campaign. 

Under manager Maurice Steijn, they have picked up just five points from their first four Eredivisie matches. 

They were also on the brink of suffering another defeat on Sunday against Feyenoord when trouble from fans forced an early halt. 

Following the chaos at the Johan Cruyff Stadium, the club confirmed the sacking of Director of Football Sven Mislintat

Head coach Maurice Steijn was expected to be fired, but Ajax decided to part company with the German instead.
