Netherlands: Ajax

Ajax's high profile can be boiled down to one thing: success. It has dominated the top division of Dutch pro soccer since its inception in 1956, winning 33 titles.

It's just one of four clubs – the others are Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea – to have won all three major UEFA club competitions.

Ajax is truly one of the best clubs in the world, with former players including icons Johan Cruyff and Dennis Bergkamp.
