The first pile of the deep foundation of the Amsterdam arena stadium was placed on 26 November 1993 as its shown in Amsterdam arena map. The construction work, undertaken by Ballast Nedam and Royal BAM Group, would take almost three years. The highest point of the building was reached on 24 February 1995, after the roof construction was raised. The fly-over from the public road to the parking facilities was opened on 13 March 1996. The Amsterdam arena received 180,000 visitors during the construction work, until the stadium was closed from 1 July 1996 until the opening ceremony. The Amsterdam arena was officially opened on 14 August 1996 by Queen Beatrix.
After the grass was revealed and the roof opened, an inaugural football match was played between AFC Ajax and Milan. The arena stadium of Amsterdam combines a retractable roof with a grass surface. This caused some problems in the beginning: the grass rolls would not grow in the shade of the open roof and had to be replaced up to four times a year. The construction of the Amsterdam arena cost €140 million (see Amsterdam arena map).
