    Since the 2017–18 season, all players of Amsterdam football club Ajax are local types — or at least they play with local type on their back. Kurversbrug is a revival by Ramiro Espinoza, based on the lettering found on most bridges over the canals in the Amsterdam city centre. The original alphabet was probably designed by Anton Kurvers around 1930.
