The PSV Eindhoven (officially Eindhovense Voetbalvereniging Philips Sport Vereniging ) is a football club from the Dutch city of Eindhoven . Together with arch rivals Ajax Amsterdam and Feyenoord Rotterdam, PSV is one of the most successful football clubs in the Netherlands.
PSV Eindhoven was founded on August 31, 1913 as a works association of the Philips group . At first, the football department was just one of many in the club.
In the long history of the club, the club produced many later world stars such as Ruud Gullit , Romário , Ronaldo , Luc Nilis , Jaap Stam and Ruud van Nistelrooy . However, the basis for success was already provided by players Willy van der Kuijlen , Jan van Beveren , Jan Poortvliet and the Van de Kerkhof brothers ( René and Willy ), who won their first international title in Eindhoven with the 1978 UEFA Cup .
The club has a good scouting program. Talented players, especially from South America, are recruited and trained again and again. PSV Ronaldo , Eiður Guðjohnsen , Mateja Kežman , Arjen Robben , Park Ji-sung and Lee Young-pyo served as a stepping stone for a career.
The club's motto is Eendracht Maakt Macht .
Beginnings and introduction of professional football
PSV Eindhoven has been participating in the Dutch league since 1914. In 1921/22 you played for the first time in the top division. PSV has played in the top division of the Dutch association since 1926. In 1955, professional football was finally established at PSV. A short time later, PSV failed in their 1st European Cup match in the 1st round to SK Rapid Vienna .
In the mid and late 1970s, PSV had a big high. They won the KNVB Cup twice, the championship three times and the UEFA Cup in 1978 when they beat SC Bastia 3-0 in the second leg . The first leg ended 0-0.
The Hiddink Era, Part I.
Between 1987 and 1990 Guus Hiddink was a trainer for the Red-Whites . Around players like Ronald Koeman , Eric Gerets , Søren Lerby and Wim Kieft he built a powerful squad that also attracted international attention. During the three years at PSV, Hiddink won three trophies and championship doubles. But in his first season in 1987/88 he achieved the greatest success in the club's history, the victory in the European Cup . The team made it to the final with just three wins. The quarter-final against Girondins Bordeaux and the semi-final against Real Madrid both ended 1-1 in the first leg and 0-0 in the second leg. Only because of the goal scored away, Eindhoven always moved into the next round. On May 25, 1988, the team in Stuttgart faced the team from Benfica Lisbon . After extra time hadn't produced a winner - up until then it had been a goalless game - the penalty shoot-out had to decide. By 6: 5 from PSV's point of view, all shooters had hit. But then António Veloso was the unlucky one who secured the triumph for the Boeren and plunged his team into mourning after the missed penalty.
Bobby Robson took Hiddink's legacy in 1990. Although the championship could be won twice in 1990/91 and 1991/92, the club dismissed him after the end of the second season. The reason for this was the modest successes at international level. But also within the team there were problems between Robson and Romário, who was brought in at the end of the Hiddink era . This remained loyal to the club until 1993 and then moved to FC Barcelona .
After Robson, Hans Westerhof was the new coach, but after only second place in the league, replaced by Aad de Mos a year later . After the 1993/94 season, Hans van Breukelen , who had been in goal since 1984, announced his resignation from professional football. With him went the crowd favorite and one of the top performers of the last ten years. With Ronald Waterreus and Stanley Menzo , the club signed two new goalkeepers who should fight for the space between the posts. The younger Waterreus prevailed and guarded the goal of PSV for the next ten years. Aad de Mos was only third in the Eredivisie in 1993/94 with PSV. In his second year he was replaced by Kees Rijvers in October 1994 and Dick Advocaat shortly afterwards in December . With the two new strikers Ronaldo and Luc Nilis , they wanted to build on better times again. Ronaldo was the top scorer in the league with 30 goals, but PSV were knocked off only third behind Ajax Amsterdam and Roda JC Kerkrade . The following year went better. They finished second and made it to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League . In 1996/97 top performers like Jaap Stam , Phillip Cocu , Wim Jonk , Luc Nilis, Arthur Numan and Boudewijn Zenden were in the PSV squad. They brought the championship back to Eindhoven after a long dry spell. In the following season they were again in the shadow of Ajax Amsterdam and only finished second. The Champions League ended after the group stage.
Change after the 1998 World Cup
A total of six players from the club were nominated for the Dutch national soccer team for the 1998 soccer World Cup . This meant that PSV provided most of the players from one team. The Dutch made it to the semi-finals and the PSV players aroused the interest of major European top clubs. For the 1998/99 season only André Ooijer returned from the Oranje squad. All the others signed contracts with new clubs. The team then changed their face. Young players like Ruud van Nistelrooy were signed and installed and Bobby Robson was the new coach. Third place was secured on the last day of the season. At the end of the season, coach Bobby Robson left and was replaced by Belgian Eric Gerets . He brought Eric Addo from his ex-club Bruges Club and brought in other people such as Mark van Bommel , Johann Vogel and veteran Jan Heintze , who wore the club's jersey between 1982 and 1994. The newcomers had a good impact and PSV celebrated their 15th title win. The storm duo Nistelrooy / Nilis scored 48 goals. In the following season, this couple was blown up by the departure of Luc Nilis to Aston Villa . Van Nistelrooy was also out due to an injury. With Mateja Kežman they found a good replacement and with Kevin Hofland and John de Jong further young stars were signed. In the Champions League, on the other hand, the suitcases had to be packed early again. However, by finishing third in the group stage, you reached the third round. The team then advanced to the quarterfinals, where the team met 1. FC Kaiserslautern . The team lost the first leg 0-1. When the second leg was also lost 0-1, PSV supporters stormed the place. The UEFA imposed on it a fine. In addition, the red-whites had to play a game on neutral ground. The league title was defended, but in the summer of 2001 the striker van Nistelrooy had to move towards Manchester United . Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink was signed by Twente Enschede to replace him . Once again, only third place in the group stage of the Champions League was achieved, so that the Philips Sport Association had to compete for the next round in the UEFA Cup. There the team first beat Leeds United and then met Feyenoord Rotterdam in the first international Dutch-Dutch comparison . Both games ended 1-1 and only the penalty shoot-out decided for Feyenoord, who then could not be stopped on the way to the UEFA Cup triumph. Even in the league, PSV could no longer convince and only reached second place. The board and the fans lost confidence in Eric Gerets and he was fired in the summer of 2002.
The return of Hiddink
Before the 2002/2003 season, Guus Hiddink was presented as the new coach. He was previously the coach of South Korea and surprised during the Soccer World Cup in 2002 by advancing with the Asians to the semi-finals and only narrowly failing to Germany . In January 2003, PSV signed the two South Korean internationals Park Ji-sung and Lee Young-pyo , who were part of Hiddink's squad for the World Cup. In the summer of 2002, the then 18-year-old Arjen Robben was kicked off from FC Groningen . In the end, PSV were 3 points ahead of Ajax Amsterdam and became champions.
In 2003/04 they had to let Ajax take precedence again.
In the 2004/05 season, PSV presented itself as in the best of times. For the first time, the team qualified for the knockout round of the Champions League and even made it to the semi-finals during the course of the competition. This came as a surprise, since top performers such as goalkeeper Ronald Waterreus, Arjen Robben, Dennis Rommedahl and Mateja Kežman left the club in the summer of 2004. With defender Alex , goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes and strikers Jefferson Farfán and DaMarcus Beasley , the PSV executives made good purchases again. Before PSV defeated AS Monaco in the second round of the premier class, they prevailed against Panathinaikos Athens and Rosenborg Trondheim in the group stage . They closed the group level on points with Arsenal London , but only finished second in the group as the Londoners won the direct comparison (1: 0 and 1: 1). In the quarterfinals, the then French subscription champion Olympique Lyon was defeated on penalties. Brazilian striker Robert converted the decisive penalty for the Dutch . However, the semi-finals were the end of the line for the Hiddink team, where they were just beaten by the reigning Italian champions AC Milan . After the first leg in Milan ended with a disappointing 2-0, they won the home game 3-1. Due to the away goals rule in the European Cup, Milan was allowed to travel to the final in Istanbul, PSV said goodbye to the international stage. In the national competitions, too, everything went according to plan for PSV. They became Dutch champions in the Eredivisie with a 10 point lead over their main rivals Ajax Amsterdam. The KNVB Cup was also dusted off, on the way to the final, FC Volendam , FC Oss and Feyenoord Rotterdam were cleared out of the way before they confidently defeated Willem II 4-0 in the stadium of rival Feyenoord . Thus, Guus Hiddink's team crowned one of the most successful seasons in the club's history.
In the summer of 2005 the regulars Mark van Bommel , Johann Vogel, Park Ji-sung, Lee Young-pyo and Wilfred Bouma moved to other clubs. Again the team faced a change. Experienced but capable players like Mika Väyrynen and Timmy Simons were signed and around these talented footballers like Ismaël Aïssati and Ibrahim Afellay were placed. This season they made it to the last 16 of the Champions League. The title was also defended. In the cup final against Ajax Amsterdam, however, they lost the game and lost it. This was also the last game under the direction of Guus Hiddink.
Ronald Koeman , a former PSV player, succeeded Hiddink for the 2006/07 season. In addition, the players Edison Méndez , from Ecuador , and Carlos Salcido , from Mexico, who played at the 2006 World Cup , were brought in. The coaching staff was expanded with the experienced Jan Wouters and Tonny Bruins Slot . The two departures André Ooijer and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink have been replaced by Jan Kromkamp and striker Patrick Kluivert . The latter could not prevail against the top storm duo Jefferson Farfán and Arouna Koné and left the club after just one year. Up to the 33rd matchday, the clubs Ajax Amsterdam, AZ Alkmaar and PSV Eindhoven were tied with 72 points. Due to the goal difference, AZ was in first place, Ajax second and PSV third. With a 5-1 win on the last day of the match against Vitesse Arnheim , the red-whites moved to first place in the table. Alkmaar failed with a 2-3 defeat against Excelsior Rotterdam and Ajax did not score enough hits when they won and were one goal difference behind PSV. In the Champions League, they were able to prevail in the group stage for the third time in a row. In the round of 16 they scored 1-0 and 1-1 against Arsenal London , which was enough to qualify for the quarter-finals. There the team met Liverpool . PSV failed with an aggregate result of 0: 4 from the first and second leg. Koeman was then harshly criticized by President Schuitema, but remained in office. Schuitema was replaced shortly afterwards by Jan Reker as president of the association.
After this season and the twentieth title win, important pillars such as Phillip Cocu, Arouna Koné and Alex left the team. They left large gaps in the team. Mike Zonneveld , Kenneth Perez , Danko Lazović and Danny Koevermans were hired to plug these holes. They were suspended from the Dutch Cup after Manuel da Costa appeared for PSV, although he still had to serve a suspension from the previous year. Coach Koeman came more and more into the crossfire, so that on October 31, 2007 he announced that he would leave the club and move to Valencia CF.
The search for a new coach was difficult and you had to accept a lot of rejections. So it happened that first assistant Jan Wouters and later Sef Vergoossen took over the position of chief trainer as a temporary solution . Huub Stevens was finally introduced as the new coach, but he could not take over the team until summer 2008. Kenneth Perez , who was only signed in the summer, left the team for the winter break and went back to Ajax Amsterdam. Manuel da Costa was drawn to ACF Florence at the same time for 4.5 million euros . In February 2008 , at the age of 30 , John de Jong retired from professional football due to a persistent injury. Although Eindhoven struggled with many problems during this time, the successes were inevitable. Although they only made it to third place in the group stage of the Champions League, they made it to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup, where they had to admit defeat to Fiorentina . The league title, however, could be defended for the fourth time in a row.
With Heurelho Gomes went to the 2008/09 season, the crowd favorite and one of the guarantors of the success of recent years. In order to get a replacement for the Brazilian national goalkeeper, Sweden's number 1 Andreas Isaksson was signed from Manchester City . With Jefferson Farfán , who went to FC Schalke 04 , and Ismaël Aïssati , further pillars of the team were sold before Stevens' arrival in Eindhoven. Huub Stevens were available for the 2008/09 season as assistants Jan Wouters, Dwight Lodeweges , Hans Segers and Anton Scheutjens . With Francisco Javier Rodríguez , Erik Pieters , Reimond Manco , Noureddine Amrabat and Jérémie Bréchet , the club had again signed players who should provide a healthy mix of youngsters and experienced.
The first two game days of the 2008/09 season saw victories; the "title defense project" was launched successfully. But with the 0-1 defeat against AZ Alkmaar, disillusionment quickly followed; after an interplay between defeat and victory, the team had to give up the top position and slipped down the table. At the end of January 2009, Stevens took the consequences of this ups and downs and resigned. At that time PSV were fifth in the Eredivisie , 15 points behind leaders AZ Alkmaar. Under his successor Dwight Lodeweges , the team improved to 4th place in the final table, which is still the worst placement of the club since 1981.
In the 2009/10 season, PSV Eindhoven took third place with Fred Rutten as coach. After the team were still unbeaten leaders after the 25th matchday, they only got 13 points from the remaining nine games and were eight and seven points behind champions Twente Enschede and the second Ajax Amsterdam respectively .
For the new season, Eindhoven started the season again with the aim of winning the championship. To accomplish this task, players like Marcelo , Wilfred Bouma , Atiba Hutchinson , Jeremain Lens and Marcus Berg were signed . The club moved to the top of the table early on. On matchday 10, October 24, 2010, the team achieved a historic victory against Feyenoord Rotterdam . After a 2-0 half-time lead, the PSV offensive overcame Rotterdam goalkeeper Rob van Dijk eight times and thus won 10-0. The best shooter was the Brazilian Jonathan Reis who scored three goals. On matchday 12 there was a clash between the second-placed Twente Enschede and the leading PSV Eindhoven, who had not yet lost a game. With a goal from Nacer Chadli , the Enscheder team decided the game 1-0 in their favor and Twente pushed past PSV. At the end of the season, Eindhoven finished third and qualified for the play-off round of the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League .
At the beginning of the 2011/12 season, the club got into financial difficulties. In June 2011, the city of Eindhoven approved financial support amounting to 48.4 million euros. In return, the PSV stadium and training grounds became the property of the city and the club pays EUR 2.3 million in rent for both facilities annually. With the help of the financial donation, PSV was able to sign the players Kevin Strootman and Dries Mertens from FC Utrecht . Georginio Wijnaldum also came from Feyenoord Rotterdam . It was not until 2015 that the championship title was secured again after six unsuccessful attempts, after only winning the trophy in 2012 . The following season, the team defended the league title, as Ajax Amsterdam did not get beyond a 1-1 draw at penultimate De Graafschap in the last game of the season . In the 2015/16 season, PSV Eindhoven reached the round of 16 in the Champions League and were only eliminated there in the round of 16 following penalties against eventual finalists Atlético Madrid . In the following season, the Eindhoven team was eliminated after the group stage and the league title was lost to Feyenoord Rotterdam. In 2018 PSV won the Dutch championship title for the third time after 2015 and 2016 and qualified for the play-offs of the UEFA Champions League, in which the Eindhoven-based team beat BATE Baryssau . In the group stage, the club was eliminated from the bottom of the group. Meanwhile, the championship title was lost to Ajax Amsterdam and they qualified as runner-up for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, in which PSV were eliminated by FC Basel .
PSV Eindhoven plays its home games in the 35,000-seat Philips Stadium (not far from Eindhoven Central Station ). The club colors are red and white, the team plays in red and white striped shirts and black shorts.
The professional football department has been outsourced to a public limited company (Dutch naamloze vennootschap , NV for short ), PSV NV , since July 1, 1999 . The association is involved in the NV.
- Since the Dutch association KNVB allowed jersey advertising in 1982 , PSV players have worn the Philips logo or name on the jersey. It was not until the 2011/12 season that there was another shirt sponsor: on the back, above the player number, was the logo of the online financial service provider freo , a brand of the financial service provider De Lage Landen , which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rabobank Group . Since the 2016/17 season, the energy supplier Energiedirect.nl has been the new shirt sponsor instead of Philips.
- There is a huge rivalry between PSV Eindhoven and city rivals FC Eindhoven , which did not prevent both of them from forming a joint women's football team with PSV / FC Eindhoven, which played in the BeNe League until 2012. This team has been operating under the name PSV Eindhoven since the 2015/16 season.

Top 10 after appearances and goals
(As of December 16, 2009; league games only)
At PSV Eindhoven there have been 44 coaching periods so far. So far, twelve coaches have been foreigners. The Englishmen Bobby Robson and Sam Wadsworth , the Yugoslav Ljubiša Broćić and the Dutch Jan Reker and Guus Hiddink were the only ones to train the team in two different periods. With eight years in a row, Kees Rijvers had most consecutive years of service as PSV trainer . Sam Wadsworth looked after the team for a total of nine years, but spread over two periods. Kurt Linder was the first German to lead the team between 1968 and 1972, followed by Roger Schmidt for the first time in summer 2020.
Jong PSV is the club's second team and works as an independent team. It plays its home games on the PSV Campus De Herdgang , and on some occasions it also hosts games in the Philips Stadium , the stadium of the first team, or in the Jan Louwers Stadium , the venue of city rivals FC Eindhoven . Until its dissolution in 2016, the team played in the Beloften Eredivisie , a league in which only secondary representations from larger clubs competed against each other, and became champions four times (1997, 2000, 2010 and 2011). Since the 2013/14 season , Jong Ajax has been playing in the second-rate, professional Eerste Divisie after being promoted , but like all other reserve teams is not eligible for promotion. Due to the professional structure of the league within the league pyramid of the KNVB and the semi-professional orientation of Jong PSV, a player exchange between PSV and Jong PSV can no longer take place as it was in the "reserve league". This is only possible within the summer and winter transfer window; an exception applies to players who have played fewer than 15 games for the professionals.
