The club won the European Cup, the predecessor of today's Champions League, in 1988.

History

As its name indicates, the club started out as a company-sponsored sports club for Philips employees on August 31, 1913 to celebrate the centennial independence of the Netherlands from France. PSV has evolved into a fully professional football club. Its home in Eindhoven is the Philips Stadion with a modest capacity of 36,500 spectators which is fully-seated. It was, however, the stadium where many European Cup final matches were played, and more recently was one of the Dutch venues for the Template:Ec2 competition held jointly by the Netherlands and Belgium. It was built at the same time as the inauguration of the club, although its current capacity was only achieved by various modernisation programmes throughout its glorious history.

Throughout its history, PSV garnered many honours in the football arena and has been credited as the club where many phenomenally successful players such as Ronaldo, Romrio, Ruud Gullit, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jaap Stam, Arjen Robben, Mateja Kezman, Luc Nilis, Erik Gerets, Philip Cocu, Arthur Numan, Jan Heintze, and Wim Jonk plied their trade and talents. Its success was built on the foundations laid down by other famous players like Willy van der Kuijlen, Jan van Beveren, Jan Poortvliet, the van de Kerkhof brothers who also played for the Dutch national team and Huub Stevens in the 1970s where the club won the UEFA Cup in 1978, defeating Bastia 3-0 in the final match.

Famous coaches such as Guus Hiddink (who between stints at PSV coached the Dutch national team to a fourth-place finish in the Template:Wc and South Korea to a similar fourth place in the Template:Wc) have managed the team over the years and have brought considerable successes to the club, culminating in the victory of the European Cup in 1988.
