The official Club van 100 of Ajax Amsterdam

Club van 100 (English: Club of 100) is the official list of Football players who have appeared in one hundred or more official matches for AFC Ajax.[1]

Club van 100[edit]

The Club van 100 is the official list of Football players who have appeared in one hundred or more official matches for AFC Ajax. The club currently has a total of 151 members with Ricardo van Rhijn being the latest addition.[2] The record for league appearances is held by Mr. Ajax himself Sjaak Swart, who appeared in 463 league matches for Ajax 1.[3] There is a beneficiary team called Lucky Ajax, which was initiated by Sjaak Swart. Lucky Ajax participate in at least one match a year, usually in the name of charity, and commonly at football ceremonies to bid farewell to retiring players. One of the prerequisites for playing on Lucky Ajax, which is invitational only, is that you are a member of the Club van 100, having made at least 100 official match appearances for Ajax Amsterdam in the first team of the club.[4]

Aside from Ricardo van Rhijn, Lasse Schöne is the closest to joining the Club van 100 of AFC Ajax out of the current selection, followed closely by Niklas Moisander.[5]
