Club of 50 (Goals)

The Club of 50 contains an overview of all Ajax players who scored at least 50 goals in official matches. This overview is based on scored goals in the official matches of Ajax 1 known to us, including matches of the early years of Ajax during which time Ajax was not yet playing at the highest national level.

Our archive is not yet complete with respect to the years before the Eredivisie. We are currently working on completing this as much as possible from season 1910-11 onwards.

See this overview for a list with the number of goals in official matches for all (former) Ajax players.

See this overview for an explanation of the categorization of the various competition types.
