Ajax Amsterdam 2011-12 home kits

First team kits for UEFA champions league 2011-12 series. From Holland, Ajax Amsterdam is considered to be one the most succesful Dutch football clubs and have won the Dutch Eredivise (top league) 29 times. They have also won the Dutch Cup 18 times, the Champions League 4 times as well as lifting twice the Intercontinental trophy.

The new home shirt for the 2011/12 football season, still manufactured by Adidas, features the traditional look, but enhanced with a few subtle details calling out the club's success and heritage. The jersey is
mainly red with white on the sides of the shirt. It has a folded red and white collar, with the adidas 3-stripes in red on the shoulders and red cuffs. This classic white jersey with red stripe is
a design dating back to the 1911, when Ajax were first promoted to the top flight of Dutch football.

The adidas logo is featured on the top right part of the shirt. Following a record 30th Eredivisie title, adidas and Ajax have placed three gold stars above the club crest placed on the opposite left and the Aegon logo, club sponsors, having its logo placed in the center part of the shirt. And as a testament to this, the new Ajax home jersey features four historical badges on the back below the neckline, whilst embossed onto the sleeve are the words 'wij zijn Ajax' which translates as 'we are Ajax'.
