Amsterdam Tournament

'My' EPL (English Premiere League) team, Sunderland, have been lined up to take part in the prestigious 'Amsterdam Tournament' in July.

Ajax, Atletico Madrid and Benfica are all taking part.

Ajax have something of a bromance going on with Sunderland the last few years. They were friendly opponents of Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last August, and were also the side chosen to open the stadium in 1997.

The tournament uses an unusual points-scoring system. A victory results in three points and a draw in one, but one point is also given for each goal scored, with the aim of encouraging more attacking football.

The event takes place between July 24 and July 26.


Ajax fans; hot
