Details announced for Villa's NextGen Series clash with Ajax
We can confirm that the match will be played on Tuesday February 19 with a 7pm kick-off local time [6pm BST] at Sportpark de Toekomst.
Tony McAndrew's team must get past the Amsterdam giants if they are to progress further in the prestigious European U19 competition.
The mouth-watering clash is a rematch from last season when the two clubs met home and away in the group stages.
Ajax were 2-0 winners at their De Toekomst training headquarters thanks to goals from Nick de Bondt and Viktor Fischer.
But the claret and blues produced a sparkling performance in the return at Villa Park with Gary Gardner's hat-trick giving them a 3-0 success - a result which confirmed top spot in the group.
Villa - who reached the quarter-finals last term - made it through to the knockout stages again this time around, finishing second place in a group that included PSV Eindhoven, Celtic and table-toppers Sporting Club de Portugal.
Home wins over PSV and Celtic, a draw at Celtic and a stunning 5-1 away win at Sporting were enough to send Villa through.
