The Ajax Cape Town Under-17 team began their last two days of preparations for the AEGON Future Cup with a good tactical session on a cold Thursday morning in Amsterdam.
After training, the boys travelled to the Olympic Sports School where they spent time with the young students educating them about life in South Africa about Cape Town in particular.
The players enjoyed an afternoon at the indoor swimming pool before heading back to their guest parents for the final night at the foster homes.
Friday morning dawned and all the players arrived at De Toekomst with their baggage for a practice session before the group headed into town for an hour-long canal boat cruise around the canals of Amsterdam under perfect clear blue skies.
Fellow competitors Ajax Amsterdam, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, AC Milan, Barcelona, Deportivo Brazil and Besiktas have arrived and everyone is looking forward to the tournaments opening ceremony and the first match for Ajax Cape Town against AC Milan at 13:00.
