Ajax will increase the capacity of the Johan Cruyff Arena ahead of the EURO 2020, a renovation project which will be completed in multiple stages.

Initially, 880 seats will be added before the tournament. In the period after, that figure will be raised to 1,130 seats, bringing the stadium's total capacity to 56,120.
The redevelopment will change the overall shape of the stadium from concave to convex.
