Ajax hasn't missed a Dutch Eredivisie title since the very beginning of the decade. After being narrowly edged out for the championship in 2009 2010, the team came back with a vengeance. They have since won four consecutive seasons in the Netherlands' premier soccer division. However, this year the Lancers have a more worthy opponent than they've had in years. Indeed, PSV is currently leading the league. In other words, the wearers of the Ajax football kit will have to work hard over the coming months if they want to accomplish a five-year streak of national championship titles.

Ajax vs. PSV
The Ajax and PSV rivalry is likely going to kick into even higher gear as the 2014 2015 Eredivisie season winds forward. Already, football fans are choosing sides for what will surely prove to be a contentious battle.
Right now, the Lancers are trailing PSV slightly in the league standings. In the first 12 weeks of competition, they have won eight matches, drawn two, and lost two. In comparison, PSV (also known as the Peasants) have won 10 and lost two.
PSV supporters also have bragging rights over fans in the Ajax football kit, since the Peasants beat the Lancers at the beginning of the season. On August 24th, a home fixture at Amsterdam ArenA ended 3-1 in favor of the Peasants.
Of course, fans wearing the Ajax jersey also have bragging rights, thanks to their team's unmatched history of success in Netherlands football. Over the years, the Lancers have amassed an amazing 33 titles in the Dutch first division. The Peasants are in second place, but only have 21.
The fans in the Ajax youth home jersey 2014 2015 could also point out that, at this point last season, their squad wasn't anywhere near the top slot. On the contrary, an early cluster of draws and losses left the club flitting around to different spots in the Eredivisie top 10. After 12 weeks, that left them in sixth place. In other words, this fall's version of the Lancer squad is in better shape than last year's-and last year's went on to win a national championship title anyway.
Furthermore, the wearers of the Ajax football kit also lost an early match against PSV last year. While not a home match for the Lancers, that loss was a tough one. The score was 4-0, and many Peasant fans were convinced that their team was on the way to a victory.
An eight-game winning streak, stretching from November 10th to the beginning of February, mixed up the standings for the 2013 2014 division and brought the Lancers back to the top. Youth and adult fans alike will be looking for a similar happening in 2014 2015.
Matches to Come
Already, Ajax is on a three-game winning streak, so perhaps the club's grand ascension to the top of the league standings table is already in progress. At the beginning of November, the team collected its biggest win of the season with a 4-0 home victory against Dordrecht. Sizable triumphs over Go Ahead Eagles and Cambuur have also been notable.
Upcoming matches against the likes of ADO Den Haag, Utrecht, and Excelsior will likely only boost the Lancers' position further. Meanwhile, fans will surely want to have their Ajax youth home jersey 2014 2015 for a January fixture against Feyenoord. Though a top-ranked team in Dutch soccer, Feyenoord hasn't beaten Ajax since January 2012. The upcoming match between the two teams, therefore, is one that is being anticipated among Lancer fans.
Can Ajax with a fifth consecutive Netherlands soccer championship? Only time will tell, but you can help cheer the squad toward another grand victory with a new Ajax football kit at Soccer Box. Whether you are looking for a youth home jersey or an adult away jersey, we've got you covered.
