Erik ten Hag's men face a double-header against Chelsea before they travel to France to face Lille on November 27.

But the Dutch champions have already arranged their method of transport for the game, deciding to take the train instead of flying in a plane.

Ajax CEO and former goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar says his side hope to set a good example as an eco-friendly club.

"Compliments to NS and Eurostar that this train journey has been made possible," Van der Sar told the NS website.

"We live in a climate-conscious time and we want to set a good example as a club. Lille is an excellent destination for a train journey in terms of location, which is why we approached NS with this idea.

"For Erik ten Hag and his men, this seems to us to be a more efficient and less tiring journey. Because the performance that Ajax has to deliver in Lille is of course paramount."
