Philips Sport Vereniging (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈfi.lɪps ˌspɔrt fə.ˌreː.nə.ɣɪŋ], English: Philips Sports Union), abbreviated as PSV and widely known as PSV Eindhoven [ˌpe.jɛs.ˈfeː ˈɛi̯nt.ˌɦoː.və(n)], is a sports club from Eindhoven, the Netherlands. It is best known for its professional football department which has been the home for many Dutch and foreign football talents.
Founded in 1913, PSV is one of three European Cup-winning clubs in the Netherlands, alongside AFC Ajax and Feyenoord. They won the European Cup in 1988 against Benfica, making them the second Dutch club to win The Treble, and the UEFA Cup in 1978 against SC Bastia. The club has won the national league 21 times, the national cup nine times and the Johan Cruijff Schaal nine times.
They are often nicknamed Boeren (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈbuːrə(n)], Dutch for either peasants or farmers) This nickname was first used as a derogatory name by rival supporters, due to Eindhoven's status of being a provincial city. However, PSV fans took on this nickname, taking pride in their Brabantian heritage, this Brabantian identity also plays a fundamental role in the club's culture with the Flag of North Brabant being incorporated in shirt design and being displayed in and around the stadium. Their home is Philips Stadion, which is located in the Eindhoven borough of Strijp.
After Gerard and Anton Philips gave the foundation order, the club started out as a works team for employees of electronics conglomerate Philips on 31 August (then Koninginnedag), 1913 to celebrate the centennial defeat of the French in the Napoleonic Wars. PSV's home stadium, the Philips Stadion, then known as Philips Sportpark, was built at the same time as the inauguration of the club, although its current capacity was achieved by renovations and improvements over the years.
Because of their close ties with Philips, PSV have had the same jersey sponsor without exception since 1982, the year jersey sponsorships were introduced in the Eredivisie. This is a record in Dutch football.
PSV garnered many honours in the football arena and have been credited as the club where many successful players such as Ruud Gullit, Hans van Breukelen, Gerald Vanenburg, Romário, Eric Gerets, Ronald Koeman, Ronaldo, Luc Nilis, Wim Kieft, Jaap Stam, Boudewijn Zenden, Arthur Numan, Wim Jonk, Danko Lazović, Balázs Dzsudzsák, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Phillip Cocu, Ibrahim Afellay, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Park Ji-Sung, Jefferson Farfán, Heurelho Gomes, Alex, Eiður Guðjohnsen, Mateja Kežman, and Arjen Robben made their name. Their success was built on the foundations laid down by other famous players like Coen Dillen, Willy van der Kuijlen, Jan van Beveren, Jan Poortvliet, and the Van de Kerkhof brothers, Willy and René. PSV has difficulty competing with the salaries that are being paid elsewhere. It has managed though to become a springboard for professional development for some of these talents.
Famous coaches such as Guus Hiddink (who between stints at PSV coached the Dutch national team to a fourth-place finish in the 1998 FIFA World Cup and South Korea to a similar fourth place in the 2002 World Cup) have managed the team over the years and have brought considerable successes to the club.
The mid-and late-1970s were a golden era for PSV. They boasted quality players with the likes of Willy van der Kuijlen, the Van de Kerkhof brothers, Jan van Beveren, Jan Poortvliet, Harry Lubse, and Huub Stevens and won two domestic cups and three domestic championships. PSV also won the UEFA Cup, their first major European title in 1978, by beating French opponents SC Bastia 3–0 in the final's second leg. The first leg ended 0–0.
Hiddink era, 1987–1990 
In 1988, coached by Guus Hiddink and with a team featuring players such as Ronald Koeman, Eric Gerets, Søren Lerby and Wim Kieft, PSV won the European Cup for the first and so far only time in their history, beating Benfica on penalties after a final which ended 0-0. Hans van Breukelen stopped the crucial penalty. Curiously, PSV took the trophy despite not winning any of its final five fixtures in the competition: they eliminated both Girondins de Bordeaux and Real Madrid on away goals, with all four matches ending in draws.

Following the European Cup win, PSV faced off with Copa Libertadores winners Club Nacional de Football of Montevideo, Uruguay. After a 2–2 draw, Nacional went on to defeat PSV in penalties to win their third FIFA Club World Cup title. Under Hiddink's supervision, PSV won three Eredivisie titles, three KNVB Cups, and the European Cup. 1988 European Cup In 1988, Ronald Koeman in 1988 European Cup Won Champions in Germany.
Romario, Ronaldo & Nilis, 1990–1998 
After Hiddink left, English coach Bobby Robson, who managed the England national football team, was signed as head coach. PSV won the Dutch league in both the 1990–91 and 1991–92 seasons. However, the team did not make the progress expected by the board in European competitions and Robson was informed that he would be leaving the club at the end of the 1991–92 season. Robson had problems with handling one of the keyplayers, Brazilian international Romário. Romário, one of the keyplayers scouted by Piet de Visser, joined the team in the Hiddink era, and stayed until 1993, winning three titles for the club.
After Robson left, Hans Westerhof took over, finishing second in the competition. He was replaced by Aad de Mos but he finished third, despite having players like Gheorghe Popescu, Nii Lamptey, and Arthur Numan. Hans van Breukelen retired after this season, having defended the goal for 10 seasons, and named one of the best goalkeepers the club ever had. Ronald Waterreus and Stanley Menzo were signed to compete for a place in the goal in the 1994–1995 season. The younger Waterreus got his place under the bar for ten years.
In his second season, Aad de Mos was fired in October 1994 and temporarily replaced by Kees Rijvers until Dick Advocaat in December 1994 signed as head coach. With new strikers as Ronaldo, who scored 30 goals, and Luc Nilis, the team again finished third, far behind AFC Ajax and Roda JC.
In Dick Advocaat's second season, the performance was better, finishing second in the competition and reaching the quarter-finals of the European Cup against FC Barcelona. After five years, the 1996–97 season proved to be successful, and PSV crowned themselves champions with players like Jaap Stam, Philip Cocu, Wim Jonk, Luc Nilis, Arthur Numan, and talent Boudewijn Zenden.
The 1997–98 season was known for the success of Ajax, and PSV finished second, far behind the champions. The Belgian striker duo of Luc Nilis and Gilles De Bilde scored the most goals in the competition. Even in the Cup Final, Ajax proved to be too strong for the Boeren. The UEFA Champions League campaign ended in the group round, finishing second behind Dynamo Kyiv, despite having played good matches against Barcelona and Newcastle United.
Goalmachines; Kežman & van Nistelrooy, 1998–2002 
In the late 1990s, the club had a team full of excellent players like Jaap Stam, Arthur Numan, Phillip Cocu, Boudewijn Zenden, and Luc Nilis. After the 1998 FIFA World Cup, which was a success for Dutch national team, finishing fourth, the club was a victim of that success. Key players were transferred and PSV started the 1998–99 season with a completely new team. Sir Bobby Robson returned to the Netherlands as a favour to the club while Eric Gerets achieved his coaching badges, with striker Luc Nilis and newly-signed Ruud van Nistelrooy, the club finished third on the last day in a 2–3 win over FC Utrecht. Van Nistelrooy and Luc Nilis scored 31 and 24 goals, respectively, becoming top scorer and second most scoring player of the 1998-99 Eredivisie season. They qualified for the Champions League and coach Robson returned to England, replaced by Belgian coach Eric Gerets.
In his first season, new players introduced to the team included Mark van Bommel, Swiss international Johann Vogel, and a player of Gerets' former club Club Brugge, Eric Addo. Veteran Jan Heintze also returned to the club where he won the European Cup. The two forwards, Luc Nilis and Ruud van Nistelrooy, proved to be successful and scored together 48 goals in the competition next to Arnold Bruggink. Van Nistelrooy was once again crowned top scorer of the Eredivisie. The combination of the midfielders Johann Vogel and Mark van Bommel was also very successful for PSV. Their performances that season meant that PSV were able to win their 15th title.
Eric Gerets also won the 2000–01 title with new striker Mateja Kežman, who replaced Luc Nilis and the injured Van Nistelrooy. Newcomers Kevin Hofland and John de Jong also showed their talents. In the Champions League, Anderlecht and Manchester United proved to be too strong, although a beautiful goal against Manchester United by Mateja Kežman is often remembered by the fans. He became topscorer of the Eredivisie in 2000–01 (24 goals), 2002–03 (35 goals), and 2003–04 (31 goals). The UEFA Cup quarter-final against Kaiserslautern was a black day in PSV history when angry fans entered the field. PSV didn't made it to the semi-finals and received a fine by UEFA and was forced to play a European match on neutral ground. PSV won the Eredivisie again and striker Van Nistelrooy, fully recovered from a knee-injury, was sold eventually to Manchester United. As a result, PSV signed FC Twente striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, who had to compete with Kežman for a primary position. Although the team still had some excellent players, a difficult start in the competition eventually saw them finishing second behind rivals AFC Ajax.
In the Champions League, PSV lost 4–1 to FC Nantes on 11 September 2001. PSV again didn't make it to the second round and had to play in the UEFA Cup instead. In the fourth round, PSV beat Leeds United. In the quarter-finals, for the first time in history, two Dutch teams played against each other in a European competition, with PSV facing Feyenoord. Both matches ended in 1–1 draws. Feyenoord won the encounter in a penalty shootout and went on to win the UEFA Cup. The team had lost faith in manager Eric Gerets, who was released by the club.
Second Hiddink era, 2002–2006 
Soon after the successful 2002 FIFA World Cup for South Korea, Guus Hiddink was signed as the new coach. Arjen Robben was one of the talented new players at the club, which resulted in a new title. PSV finished last in the group round of the Champions League. In the same season, the influences of Hiddink as former coach of South Korea were shown, as Park Ji-Sung and Lee Young-Pyo joined the team.
In the 2003–04 season, PSV failed to reclaim the title. In the Champions League group round, the team finished third, despite having the same amount of points as Deportivo de La Coruña, but the Spanish side having a better result. In the UEFA Cup, PSV was beaten in the quarter-final by Newcastle United and old manager Bobby Robson. Goalkeeper Ronald Waterreus, who defended the club goal for 10 seasons, decided to leave the club.
In the 2004–05 season, PSV was at the top of their game with influential players such as Mark van Bommel, Johann Vogel, and Phillip Cocu on midfield, and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Park Ji-Sung as forwards. For the first time in history, PSV reached the knockout stage of the modern Champions League, despite losing a couple of key players such as Arjen Robben, Dennis Rommedahl, and Mateja Kežman in the summer of 2004. Hiddink created a new team with new players such as defender Alex, goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, and forwards Jefferson Farfán and DaMarcus Beasley.
PSV finished second behind Arsenal in the group stage of the Champions League and beat 2004 Champions League finalists AS Monaco with 1–0 and 0–2. After reaching the quarter-finals, another team from France came on their route, Olympique Lyonnais. The two matches ended in 1–1 and penalties were needed to decide the semi-finalists. PSV won the penalty shootout with Brazilian striker Robert scoring the final one.
PSV travelled to Italy but lost the first tie against Milan with a 2–0 score. PSV started well in the return match, with an early goal from Park Ji-Sung. A goal in the second half from Phillip Cocu doubled the score on the night. Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini, however, scored a goal in extra time of the second half. Despite a goal from Cocu a minute later, Milan went to the final on away goals. This is probably one of the strongest matches PSV has ever played and most fans remember the tears of Brazilian defender Alex, also known as "The Tank." The season was the most successful season in the recent years, winning the 18th Eredivisie title as well as their eighth KNVB Cup.
Regardless, after the departures of influential players such as Mark van Bommel, Johann Vogel, Park Ji-Sung, Lee Young-Pyo, and Wilfred Bouma after the 2004–05 season, PSV have moved to secure the services of players like Rangers' Michael Ball, Mika Väyrynen and Belgium midfielder Timmy Simons. With the addition of young players to bolster the squad such as Ismaïl Aissati and Ibrahim Afellay, PSV reached the knockout stage of the 2005–06 Champions League for a second running, having reached the semi-final stage in the Champions League season before. PSV ended again second in the group behind Milan. The team defeated the Italians in the home match with 1–0 in a tough group with Schalke 04 and Fenerbahçe. In the first knockout round, Lyon proved to be too strong over two matches. PSV again won the domestic title, but lost the cup final against archrivals Ajax, the last match of Hiddink as coach of the team.
Managerial turmoil, 2006–2009 
For the 2006–07 season, PSV contracted manager Ronald Koeman to succeed Hiddink. They also signed Ecuadorian player Edison Méndez and Mexican player Carlos Salcido after the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where they assisted their teams to the second round. Jan Wouters and Tonny Bruins Slot were brought in as the assistant-managers. André Ooijer and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink left the club after the start of the competition, and as replacements, Jan Kromkamp came from Liverpool and former Ajax striker Patrick Kluivert signed for a year. The top goal scorers of the season were Jefferson Farfán and Arouna Koné. The season saw the club building a gap with the other teams. The lead quickly dissipated in the 13 matches that followed. A draw of PSV at FC Utrecht in the penultimate round saw AZ and Ajax catching up. The three clubs were all on 72 points from 33 matches, with AZ on top due to goal difference. Ajax were second, PSV were third.
PSV won the Eredivisie for the 2006–07 season on 29 April with a 5–1 score, final day home victory against Vitesse Arnhem. AZ suffered a shocking 2–3 defeat away at SBV Excelsior, while Ajax and PSV both won. Therefore, the title was decided only by goal difference, with PSV's bigger winning margin proving decisive as they bettered Ajax's goal difference by just one goal (+50 compared with +49). This is known as the most exciting and closest title races in many years.
In the UEFA Champions League, PSV qualified for the knockout stage for the third time in a row, second behind Liverpool, leaving Girondins de Bordeaux and Galatasaray behind. In the first knockout phase, PSV defeated Arsenal at home with 1–0 by a goal from Edison Méndez. In the return, PSV struggled and keyplayer Alex scored an own goal. He scored the unexpected 1–1, however, which was enough for PSV to reach the quarter-finals. Liverpool again was the opponent, but an injured PSV squad lost 0–4 on aggregate.
Although the club won the title, chairman Schuitema voiced criticism on coach Ronald Koeman after almost losing the championship, despite having a huge lead in December. But it was decided that Koeman would stay on for another year. New chairman Jan Reker replaced Schuitema.
After the season in which PSV won their 20th title, key players Phillip Cocu and Alex left the club. A difficult job for coach Koeman to fill their positions. They signed Mike Zonneveld, Kenneth Perez, and Danko Lazović. Danny Koevermans came from AZ after Arouna Koné eventually was sold to Sevilla FC. Also, Ismaïl Aissati and Otman Bakkal came back from Twente after playing for that club on loan.
The team was disqualified from the Dutch Cup tournament, after fielding Manuel da Costa, who was still suspended as a result of last year's tournament. PSV general manager called it "a huge blunder." On 31 October 2007, Ronald Koeman agreed to be the new coach of Valencia CF, despite having a contract at PSV. The search for a new coach showed to be a struggle for the club and assistant coach Jan Wouters agreed to temporarily take over the job of head coach. Sef Vergoossen was contracted to be head coach until the end of the season, when Huub Stevens took over. On 31 December 2007, Kenneth Perez left the club for Ajax, where he was bought from in the summer of the same year. Chairman Reker declared that it was Perez's own choice to leave the club. On 26 February PSV midfielder John de Jong retired at the age of 30 after failing to recover from an injury he sustained during a training session in 2005. Despite these personnel changes, PSV went on to win their 21st title, making it the third time in the history of the league that a team won four championships in a row, after HVV Den Haag (1900, 1901, 1902, 1903) and PSV (1986, 1987, 1988, 1989).
On 23 August 2008, PSV won the Johan Cruijff schaal (Dutch Super Cup) 2–0, the goals scored by Danko Lazović and Dirk Marcellis against Feyenoord, PSV being the winner of the Eredivisie and Feyenoord won the KNVB Cup. PSV started well in the league, winning their first two games. However, the first Champions League match at home against Atlético Madrid was lost 0–3. This match was a sign of things to come. PSV were chanceless in their Champions League group, losing to Liverpool both home and away, losing away against Olympique de Marseille and losing home and away against Atlético Madrid. The only match won by PSV was the home game against Marseille. These poor results meant that PSV finished last in their group, behind Liverpool, Atlético Madrid, and Marseille, respectively. For the first time since 2002, PSV was eliminated from European football before the winter. AZ went on to win the national league and PSV finished fourth, their worst league performance since 1981 (curiously, the only other year in which AZ won the championship) when they finished fifth. This disappointing league performance meant that for the first time since the 1996–97 season, PSV would not be playing in the Champions League, but in the newly named UEFA Europa League instead.
Trophy drought & third places, 2009–2012 
Fred Rutten, former Schalke 04 coach, took over as head coach and had a very successful first half of the 2009–10 season in which PSV didn't lose a single game in the national league, the national cup, and the Europa League. They finished the calendar year 2009 in the second spot in the national league behind FC Twente, who also did also not lose a single domestic game in the season's first half. The second half turned out to be less successful. PSV started drawing and losing many league matches (two draws and two defeats in the first 10 league matches of 2010) and was eliminated from the national cup and the 2009–10 Europa League tournaments by Feyenoord and Hamburger SV respectively. As of 14 March 2010 PSV were second in the league trailing leaders Twente by five points with only one point lead on the third placed team AFC Ajax.
As the 54th Eredivisie ended on 2 May 2010, PSV ended in third, eight points behind the champions, after a shaky end as Ajax climbed up the table to swipe second while Twente won with one point over Ajax. PSV would therefore enter the Europa League of the following season, thus missing qualification for the Champions League for the second year in a row.
On 24 October 2010, they beat Feyenoord with a 10–0 score. It was the third time in history that PSV won a match in the Eredivisie with this amount of goals. In 1973, Go Ahead Eagles and in 1998, FC Volendam, were also crushed with the same score. The goalscorers of the match: Jonathan Reis (24', 47', 59'), Ola Toivonen (49') Jeremain Lens (55', 87') Balázs Dzsudzsák (62', 77') Orlando Engelaar (69') (Bruno Martins Indi (39', own goal)).
On 24 February 2011, PSV beat French side Lille 5–3 on aggregate in the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League. They advanced to the quarter-finals on 17 March by beating Rangers 1–0 on aggregate. Here they lost against Benfica 6–3 on aggregate.
PSV ended on a disappointing third place in the 2010–11 season after losing a close title race to Ajax. Being in financial problems, the club was helped by the city council of Eindhoven, who granted a larger amount of money to make sure the club would not face the possibility of going into administration.
Having financial struggles, transfers of profile players were inevitable. The captain and hero, Ibrahim Afellay, was sold to giants FC Barcelona in the winter transfer window, and Hungarian winger Balázs Dzsudzsák moved to the newly rich Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer of 2011. Despite the financial headaches profiles like Kevin Strootman and Dries Mertens made the move from FC Utrecht to PSV and Georginio Wijnaldum was bought from rivals Feyenoord. Goalkeeper Przemysław Tytoń made a loan-deal from Roda JC, and was later announced bought via an option to buy agreement in his loan contract. FC Groningen striker Tim Matavž and defenders Jetro Willems (Sparta Rotterdam) and Timothy Derijck (ADO Den Haag) followed.
In the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League, PSV won their group with 16 points. PSV won respectively 1–2 and 4–1 in the round of 32 against Turkish side, Trabzonspor. In the Round of 16 in March, Valencia CF beat PSV 4–2 at Estadio Mestalla.
On 12 March 2012, it was announced that head coach Fred Rutten, due to poor results, would be replaced by former assistant-coach Phillip Cocu in the role as caretaker until the end of the 2012 season. Former PSV defender and youth coach, Ernest Faber was accordingly signed on a two-year deal from FC Eindhoven as Cocu's assistant-trainer.
Cocu and Faber's first match in charge of PSV was the second leg of their Europa League Round of 16 match against Valencia CF on 15 March 2012. They drew 1–1 at the Philips Stadion, which meant that Valencia advanced to the quarter-final 3–5 on aggregate. PSV's first Eredivisie match under the supervision of Cocu and his new staff was the 5–1 win against SC Heerenveen on 18 March 2012. On 21 March, the Eindhoven side advanced the KNVB Beker final by beating Heerenveen 1–3. Przemysław Tytoń, who had replaced Andreas Isaksson as first choice in the goal, saved a penalty from Bas Dost.
PSV won the KNVB Beker final against Heracles Almelo 3–0 on 8 April, clinching the club's ninth domestic cup. Ola Toivonen opened the goal account by scoring a fine heel goal, and the victory was accordingly sealed by goals from Dries Mertens and Jeremain Lens. Approximately 17,000 fans traveled to Rotterdam in support.
PSV once again ended the Eredivisie season in third place, failing to qualify for the 2012–13 Champions League. Winning the KNVB Cup had been somewhat of a consolation prize, ending the club's trophy drought which had lasted since 2008.
Current situation, 2012– 
On 6 April, it was announced that PSV had been placed in the KNVB's financial category 3, the healthiest category, based on the financial strength of the club. Taking the financial struggles of 2011 into consideration, this was an important improvement for the club.
Although Phillip Cocu had been quite successful as caretaker both in terms of results and among players and the fans, he went on to coach of one of the PSV youth teams. It had been reported that Cocu had been hesitant to take the role as head coach of PSV in the first place. Former club manager Dick Advocaat was on 10 May 2012 officially announced as manager on a 1 year contract.
Young PSV product and newly integrated talent, Zakaria Labyad was sold after an intense transfer phase with Sporting CP. Danish defender, Mathias "Zanka" Jørgensen had earlier in 2012 signed a contract with the club and joined PSV during the summer. Former captain Mark van Bommel returned to his old club from A.C. Milan and was officially presented as a PSV player on 14 May. SC Heerenveen winger Luciano Narsingh was brought in on a 5 year contract. PSV confirmed their role as title favorites beating Dutch Champions AFC Ajax 4-2 in the Dutch Super Cup final.
The Eindhoven giant secured a place in the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League group stage by beating FK Zeta 14-0 on aggregate. The monster score was amongst others aided with two goals by youngster and debutant Peter van Ooijen, who later was fully contracted as a first team player. Eindhoven did not advance from the group stage, but beat group favourites, S.S.C. Napoli in both matches, respectively 3-0 in Eindhoven and 1-3 in Stadio San Paolo, inflicting Napoli's first European home loss in 18 years on the Serie A side. PSV claimed the top spot of the Eredivisie table before the winter pause with 60 goals scored. IF Elfsborg-midfielder, Oscar Hiljemark was brought to the team during the winter transfer window.
Stadium & training facilities 
The Philips Stadion is the PSV home base. Since the founding of the club, PSV's home base is still at the same place where the PSV sports grounds were established in 1913. It was first inaugurated by the five year old boy named Frits Philips, in January 1911 when the Philips Elftal played their first game. Frits Philips was the CEO of Philips from 1961 until 1971. PSV was not founded yet. The neighborhood where the stadium is located is the Philipsdorp ('Philips village'), close to the centre of Eindhoven. The current capacity has been achieved by various modernisation programmes.
The stadium can accommodate 35,000 people on match days. Plans to further expand the ground to 45,000 seats are being examined, this would have been a mandatory task if the World Cup of 2018 or 2022 would have been hosted by the Netherlands and Belgium. The average attendance for the season 2007–08 was 33,600. All seats are covered and heated. In the summer of 2005, the board of the club decided to remove the tall fences around the pitch, replacing them with 90 cm high railings keeping the spectators off the grass. Unauthorized persons who do invade the pitch will receive a €15,000 penalty and a ten-year-ban from visiting the Philips Stadion.
The stadium has been host to many European Cup matches, and was one of the Dutch venues for the Euro 2000 competition jointly organised by the Netherlands and Belgium.
The stadium also features a Michelin-starred restaurant (Avant Garde) situated high above the pitch and available for meals wrapped around matches. No other stadium in the Netherlands holds a Michelin starred restaurant.
Approximately 3,5 km northwest of Philips Stadion lies "De Herdgang" - the training facilities of PSV. It is located near Philips de Jonghpark, in woodland surroundings. It is also the base of the club's youth team "Jong PSV" and therefore also consists of a youth complex with a main pitch and an artificial pitch. The first team's training sessions are often open for the public.
