The final match, between Ajax and Manchaster United, which will be played in Stockholm, Sweden, will be broadcast publicly on Museumplein.

Some 100,000 spectators are excpected on the square. There are no extra measures in place after today's terrorist attack in Manchester, says a spokesperson of the City of Amsterdam. The public viewing of the match will go on as planned.
Flags are flown half-mast today on buildings of the City of Amsterdam, to commemorate the victims in Manchester.
Security measures on and around Museumplein were already in place before the attack happened. There are no specific indications that something will happen in Amsterdam.

Museumplein will be accessible from 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday May 24).
The match will start 8.45pm (before that, there will be an hour long Dutch discussion about the match).
The end of the match will be at 10.30pm.

If Ajax wins, the soccer team will be honoured on Thursday May 25, also at Museumplein.
