When the soccer stadium De Meer was followed up by the Amsterdam Arena, the old stadium 'De Meer', home of the Amsterdam soccer club Ajax, was demolished. The current residential neighbourhood has many streetnames and bridge names that refer to famous soccer players and soccer stadiums all over the world.
It was decided that the centre spot of the old soccer field De Meer would be placed symbolically in the street pavement of the street Esplanade de Meer.
The truth is that the location is not exact - the exact location of the old centre spot is in a private garden near-by.
