Official Umbro Ajax special edition 'De Meer' football shirt from the 1995/96 season.
This jersey was produced to mark the club's final season at the De Meer Stadion. Ajax moved to De Meer in 1934 but increasing safety requirements forced capacity to as low as 19,000 which was far too low for the size of the club. The Amsterdam Arena was built and the side moved there in 1996.
This special design was only worn in one match in the 95-96 season and this was the final clash with rivals PSV Eindhoven at the old ground which finished in a 1-1 draw with Kanu equalising a Ronaldo effort in the first half.
Condition of this original football jersey is 7/10 - The 'De Meer' crest is no longer on the bottom of the collar. A little wear to the stitched Umbro log on the chest. The size label has a cut through it (see photos).
Managed by Louis van Gaal, Ajax won the 1992 UEFA Cup. Dennis Bergkamp scored six goals in the competition and was the top goalscorer in Dutch football in 1991 and 1992.
Ajax won the 1994–95 UEFA Champions League and the league title. The season saw an unbeaten run in the national league and the final season for Frank Rijkaard, while striker Patrick Kluivert came off the bench to score a late winner to beat A.C. Milan in the final of the Champions League. Ajax went on to beat Brazilian side Grêmio on penalties to win the Intercontinental Cup. The following season, Ajax lost to Juventus on penalties in the European Cup final.
However, the subsequent period saw the departure of manager van Gaal along with an exodus of many key players including Clarence Seedorf in 1995; Edgar Davids, Michael Reiziger, Finidi George, and Nwankwo Kanu in 1996; Patrick Kluivert, Marc Overmars, and Winston Bogarde in 1997; Ronald de Boer and Frank de Boer in 1998; and Edwin van der Sar and Jari Litmanen in 1999.
