De Toekomst (Dutch for The Future), is a sporting complex comprising 9 fields located next to the Amsterdam Arena in the municipality of Ouder-Amstel.

The grandstand at De Toekomst was renamed after the deceased Bobby Haarms on 13 June 2009.

On 3 July 2013 it was announced that an additional stand with 2,250 seats was to be built at De Toekomst, in order to accommodate an increase of spectators for the visiting team, as Jong Ajax, no longer playing in the Beloften Eredivisie, had joined the Eerste Divisie, the 2nd tier of professional football in the Netherlands. De Toekomst still serves as the home stadium for Jong Ajax, while matches with higher intensity are hosted in the Amsterdam Arena next door.
