In 1978, it hosted the farewell match of the Dutch football legend Johan Cruijff, which was won by Bayern München after defeating Cruijff’s club Ajax 8-0. Cruijff played for Ajax, FC Barcelona, the Los Angeles Aztecs, the Washington Diplomats and Levante before he returned to Ajax. He ended his professional football career with Feyenoord, the rivals of Ajax. Johan Cruijff signed with Feyenoord after Ajax refused to offer him a new contract. In his last Dutch top-flight league season with Feyenoord, he won the Dutch football championship and the national cup tournament.
