1971 European Cup Final
Event European Cup 1970–71
Date 2 June 1971
Venue Wembley Stadium, London
Referee Jack Taylor (England)
Attendance 83,179

The 1971 European Cup Final was a football match held at Wembley Stadium, London, on 2 June 1971, that saw AFC Ajax of the Netherlands defeat Panathinaikos FC of Greece 2 - 0. An incredible comeback in the second leg of their semi-final against FK Red Star meant Panathinaikos were the first (and only) Greek side to reach a European Cup Final. However, Ajax were too strong, winning with an early Dick van Dijk strike, and a late goal from a shot by Arie Haan deflected by Kapsis, for the own goal. This was the first of a run of three European Cup victories in a row for Ajax.
