Dutch Competition

Ajax was unable to prolong the previous season's championship. Ajax was confronted with several injuried and players not being in their best form, and never is able to make a good series. In the end Ajax ends at 5 points from DOS and SC Enschede. A decision match determines that DOS is the new domestic champion. Also by a decision match Elinkwijk stays in the Eredivisie while GVAV relegates.

Beker

There is no reason known to us, but Ajax, Blauw-Wit, BVV, SC Enschede and GVAV did not participate in the Dutch cup this season.

Europa

After not needing to be active in the preliminary round of the, at that time, only European tournament, a double meeting with the East German SC Wismut from Karl-Marx-Stadt followed. Both matches were won. In the quarter final Ajax was matched with Vasas Budapest. At home Ajax plays 2-2, but away Ajax loses with 4-0 and is eliminated from the tournament. It is interesting how poorly organized the tournament is at that time compared to the current seasons. As an example it is up to the clubs themselves to decide when the matches will be played and who will play at home first. Real Madrid won the tournament, for the third time in a row, also the third time this tournament was organized. This was also the season the plane disaster involving Manchester United happened. 8 players died after an accident while the team returned from a match against Red Star Belgrade.

Lineup

Ajax strengthened its squad with Guus van Ham, Jan Snoeks and Wim Feldmann to replace Ge van Dijk and Klaas Bakker. In theory this looked like a good plan and with multi functional players like Loek den Edel, Sjaak Swart, Wim Feldmann and Piet Ouderland the team seemed to be stronger than previous season. However from the starting lineup from the previous season Visser, Michels, Geelhuizen and Bleijenberg are confronted with longlasting injuries. From the end of March until end April Ajax wins four matches in a row with the following lineup: Eddy Pieters Graafland (goalkeeper), Ger van Mourik and Cor Geelhuizen (defense), stopperspil Wim Anderiesen Jr., Guus van Ham and Benny Muller (midfield), Loek den Edel, Sjaak Swart, Wim Bleijenberg, Piet van der Kuil and Willy Schmidt (attack). In the subsequent match Henk Koning (1) en Piet Ouderland (25) played instead of Anderiesen and Den Edel, and Ajax lost. Ger van Mourik was the captain. The benefit from the injuries was the Bennie Muller was able to make his debut, he came to a total of 11 appearances in his first season. In addition Wim Feldmann (25), Bobby Haarms (12), Jan Snoeks (12), Donald Feldmann (4), Jan van Drecht (2), Rinus Michels (2), Jan Fransz (1), Toon van der Linde (1) and Jan Quakernaat (1) played official matches.

Coach

The Austrian Karl Humenberger was the trainer of Ajax.

Classic

Ajax and Feyenoord are both able to win the away Klassieker this season, Feyenoord in the first half of the season with 1-2 in Amsterdam and Ajax later with 2-3 in Rotterdam.
