Willemstad – October 30, 2020 – A delegation of the Dutch professional soccer club Ajax is visiting Curaçao to strengthen the collaboration within the context of their partnership.

Since the beginning of this year, Curaçao has been featured prominently on Ajax shirt sleeves and receives with the promotions around the matches, coverage on television and other Ajax media outlets that reach millions of the club’s fans in the Netherlands and around the world.
“With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on tourism, it is more important than ever to be visible and to remind as many people as possible that Curacao is one of the few sunny destinations where travelers are welcome, under certain conditions. We are therefore delighted to welcome the Ajax delegation on this visit to get acquainted with the island of Curaçao,” declared Minister Martina.
