The Amsterdam Arena is the biggest sports stadion of the Netherlands, with more than 50.000 seats.
Building started in 1993. Ajax scored its first goal in this stadion on August 21, 1996.
The name Schiphol was already used in the 15th century, but obviously the name was not a synonym for Amsterdam Airport in those days.
In 1916 an airport was build at the site of what used to be the swamp Schiphol.
