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.
Foundation and first decennia (1913–1962)
To serve the need for activities with Philips employees, the company founded its own football team in 1910; the Philips Elftal. Its ground was the Philips Sportpark, located on the same location as the present day stadium. Financial turmoil and worker strikes led to a quick demise of the team and in 1913, its successor emerged: the Philips Sport Vereniging was founded on 31 August (then Koninginnedag) after Gerard and Anton Philips gave the foundation order. It was the day that Philips organized celebrations and sports competitions in light of the centennial defeat of the French in the Napoleonic Wars. It was not until 1916 though, that the football department switched its name from Philips Elftal to PSV. Because of the First World War, the first possibility to enter a league was in the 1915-16 season. PSV’s first ever match was a 3-2 defeat against Willem II Reserves on 19 September 1915. The team did achieve promotion that season to a newly created Third Division of the Brabantian FA. Under the guidance of coach Wout Buitenweg, PSV managed to reach the national First Division in 1921. The team got relegated in 1925, but its stint in the Second Division only lasted one year when PSV got promoted again. Since 1926, PSV has always played in the highest possible domestic league.
That year, defender Sjef van Run was brought in and a year later Jan van den Broek joined PSV; two players that would help shape the squad in the coming years. Van Run played 359 league matches for PSV and Van den Broek made 154 goals for the team. Behind the scenes, Frans Otten became chairman of the entire PSV sports union. He was responsible for bringing the club to a new level with new accommodations and stadium expansions. After winning the district league in 1929, PSV entered the championship play-offs. In that competition, it won 6 out of 8 matches. A 5-1 win against Velocitas from Groningen meant that PSV was crowned league champions for the first time. In the following three years, PSV won the district league every year, but it could not win the play-offs until 1935. In that year, the team managed to beat Ajax twice and secured the second championship ever in a 2-1 victory against DWS.
Due to World War II, attendances decreased significantly and in 1940, PSV player Johan Brusselers died in combat. After the war, PSV signed two new strikers: Piet Fransen and Coen Dillen. Fransen started playing for the club in 1948 and a year later, Dillen joined PSV. In 1950, PSV got its first post-war success when the team defeated HFC Haarlem in the KNVB Beker final; the match ended in 4-3 after extra-time. A year later, PSV won the district title after EVV failed to win their final match. Even though coach Sam Wadsworth resigned during the championship play-offs, the title was won after a 2-1 win over Willem II. The 1950-51 season was Dillen’s breakthrough, scoring 21 times and earning the nickname ‘The Canon’. Besides Dillen and Fransen, a memorable player of the 1950 cup and 1951 title was goalkeeper Lieuwe Steiger, who ended up playing 383 matches for PSV.
In 1955, PSV became the first Dutch club to enter the European Champion Clubs' Cup. The two matches against SK Rapid Wien ended in 1-6 and 1-0, with the goal in both matches scored by Fransen. Other success in the fifties remained absent but in the 1956-57 season, Dillen scored 43 times – a Dutch record that still stands today. The approaching sixties marked a shift in player’s heritage; the team went from mostly Brabantian men to players nationwide. One of the perks of playing for PSV was that players who were offered a football contract, were always offered a Philips job as well. Representative for this policy was defender Roel Wiersma, who arrived in 1954 and captained the team for a decade. Piet van der Kuil was also transferred from Ajax; its 59,000 euro transfer fee was the most expensive one for PSV so far. Fransen left in 1960 after scoring 210 goals for PSV, Dillen one year later. The latter was club top scorer every year from 1953 to 1960 and produced 288 league goals in total. In 1962, Otten also decided to quit as chairman of the sports union. By then, board member Ben van Gelder had gradually started to mold the club in his way. Throughout the next two decades, he became responsible for turning PSV into a full-fledged professional organization.
Van der Kuijlen era and UEFA Cup victory (1963-1978)
In the 1962-63 season, marking PSV’s fifty-year anniversary, the club appointed Bram Appel as the new coach. The first results were disastrous though, with a mere six points from the first six fixtures. A sudden revival led to a first place at the winter break and a 5-2 victory over Ajax in June meant that PSV could celebrate its fourth league title, with Pierre Kerkhofs leading the goal scorer charts with twenty-two goals. The following year, PSV ended second in the league but more significantly, reached the Europa Cup I quarter-finals for the first time, where it was eliminated by FC Zürich. Appel remained coach for five years; the position was later on followed up with short stints by Milan Nikolić and Wim Blokland. A young striker named Willy van der Kuijlen was signed in 1964. Two years later he produced 23 league goals and became the league’s top scorer at age 20.
Between 1968 and 1972, Kurt Linder coached PSV. His team reached two Dutch cup finals and the semi-finals of the Europa Cup II. Van der Kuijlen had trouble fulfilling his promise after an encouraging career start in the sixties, though - partly because of a lack of chemistry between him and Linder’s harsh coaching style. The early seventies in football were dominated by Ajax and Feyenoord, and it was not until the appointment of Kees Rijvers as coach in 1972 that would mark the start of increasing success for PSV. With Van der Kuijlen and goalkeeper Jan van Beveren as the stars of the team, Rijvers started to build a new squad. After signing players like Ralf Edström, Gerrie Deijkers and the twins Willy and René van der Kerkhof, the team showed first signs of promise. Things improved for Van der Kuijlen when Rijvers built the team around him, giving him a free role in the process. Van der Kuijlen, a technical player, formed a successful striker partnership with Edström, who was famed for his heading ability. It led to a Dutch cup victory in 1974, and after a blistering season start (no defeats in the first season half) and 28 goals by Van der Kuijlen, PSV also won the league for the fifth time in 1975.
A year later, PSV managed to win its first ‘double’. With defender Huub Stevens joining the team, the league title was secured after a 4-1 result against Feyenoord. Earlier, a 1-0 victory over Roda JC meant that PSV won the national cup as well. In the Europa Cup I, the final was only narrowly missed after a 1-0 aggregate loss against AS Saint-Étienne in the semi-finals. After the two consecutive titles, PSV ended second in 1977. The following year, Edström left the squad but PSV nonetheless enjoyed a strong league campaign. In april 1978, the team secured the title without a single loss. The domestic cup ended early after a shocking 1-6 first round loss against FC Wageningen (PSV’s biggest home loss ever to date). The UEFA Cup campaign proved to be more successful; after wins against Glenavon, Widzew Lodz, Eintracht Braunschweig and 1. FC Magdeburg, the team faced FC Barcelona. A 3-0 win in the first leg was nullified by the Catalans in the return leg, but a single goal by Nick Deacy in Camp Nou meant that PSV could progress with a 4-3 aggregate win. The two-legged final against SC Bastia first produced a goalless draw in the first match. The return leg in Eindhoven ended in a 3-0 win, with goals by Willy van de Kerkhof, Deijkers and Van der Kuijlen, giving PSV its first European trophy.
Hiddink era, 1987–1990
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.
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. Ronald Waterreus, who defended the 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 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 Michael Ball, Mika Väyrynen and 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 Edison Méndez, Jan Kromkamp Patrick Kluivert and Carlos Salcido. André Ooijer and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink left the club. The season saw the club building a gap with the other teams. The lead quickly dissipated in the following 13 matches. A draw 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. 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. In the first knockout phase, PSV defeated Arsenal at home with 1–0. In the return, a 1-1 draw was enough 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, key players Phillip Cocu and Alex left the club. Koeman signed Mike Zonneveld, Kenneth Perez, Danko Lazović and Danny Koevermans. Ismaïl Aissati and Otman Bakkal came back from Twente after playing for that club on loan.
The team was disqualified from the Dutch Cup after fielding Manuel da Costa, who was still suspended as a result of last year's tournament. In October 2007, Ronald Koeman agreed to be the new coach of Valencia CF. Assistant coach Jan Wouters agreed to temporarily take over. Sef Vergoossen was contracted to be head coach until the end of the season, when Huub Stevens took over. 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).
PSV started well in the league, winning their first two games. However, PSV were chanceless in their Champions League group; PSV finished last in their group. 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. It meant that for the first time since 1997, PSV would not enter the Champions League.
Trophy drought & third places, 2009–2012
Fred Rutten took over as head coach and had a successful first half of the 2009–10 season in which PSV didn't lose a single game in all competitions. They finished the calendar year 2009 in the second spot behind FC Twente. The second half turned out to be less successful. PSV suffered 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. As the Eredivisie ended, PSV ended in third.
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. PSV ended on a disappointing third place in the 2010–11 season after losing a close title race to Ajax. Due to the lack of success in the field, the club experienced liquidity problems. The city council of Eindhoven decided to buy the land under the stadium and training facilities to make future success possible.
Because of these financial issues, transfers of high profile players were inevitable. Ibrahim Afellay was sold to FC Barcelona in the winter transfer window, and Balázs Dzsudzsák left in the summer of 2011. Despite the financial problems players like Kevin Strootman and Dries Mertens made the move from FC Utrecht to PSV and Georginio Wijnaldum was bought from rivals Feyenoord.
Cocus first match in charge was the second leg of their Europa League Round of 16 match against Valencia CF. They drew 1–1 at the Philips Stadion, which meant that Valencia advanced 5-3 on aggregate. PSV won the KNVB Beker final against Heracles Almelo 3–0, the club's ninth domestic cup. PSV once again ended the Eredivisie season in third place.
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.
Mathias "Zanka" Jørgensen and Luciano Narsingh joined PSV during the summer. Former captain Mark van Bommel returned from A.C. Milan. The Eindhoven giant did not advance from the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League 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. PSV claimed the top spot of the Eredivisie table before the winter pause with 60 goals scored.
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.
