Ajax to Play in England

NOTTINGHAM, England () -- World and European club champions Ajax will take part in a four-team preseason tournament in Nottingham this summer.


The Dutch giants will join English Premier League clubs Manchester United, Nottingham Forest and Chelsea in the Aug. 3-4 tournament.


All games will be played at Forest's City Ground stadium, one of the venues for this summer's European Championships.


Ajax will play Manchester United in the opening game Aug. 3. It will be the first game between the two giants since United beat Ajax by one goal in the first round of the UEFA Cup in 1976.


Forest will bank all the gate receipts from the tournament, while the other three teams receive appearance money.
