PSV Eindhoven

The Philips Sport Vereniging, abbreviated as PSV and internationally known as PSV Eindhoven, is a sports club from Eindhoven, that plays in the Eredivisie, the top tier in Dutch football. It is best known for its professional football department, which plays in the Eredivisie since its inception in 1956. Along with Ajax and Feyenoord, PSV is one of the country's "big three" clubs that have dominated the Eredivisie; the club was founded in 1913 as a team for Philips employees. PSV's history contains two golden eras revolving around the UEFA Cup victory in 1978 and the 1987–88 European Cup victory as part of the seasonal treble in 1988; the team has won the Eredivisie 24 times, the KNVB Cup nine times and the Johan Cruyff Shield ten times. PSV is 39th on the UEFA club coefficients ranking. Throughout the years, PSV established itself as a stepping stone for future world class players like Ruud Gullit, Ronald Koeman, Romário, Phillip Cocu, Jaap Stam, Park Ji-Sung, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Since its foundation, it has upheld its club colours. Its elaborate connection with Philips can be witnessed in its sponsoring, shared technology and board member ties. Fans have named themselves'boeren', taking pride in Eindhoven's status of being a provincial city and their Brabantian heritage. 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, Philips Sport Vereniging, founded on 31 August, 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, that the football department switched its name from Philips Elftal to PSV; because of World War I, the first possibility to enter a league was in the 1915–16 season.

The club's first 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 were promoted in 1918 and 1921 as well reaching the Eerste Klasse; the team was relegated in 1925, but its stint in the Second Division only lasted one year when PSV were 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 Jan van den Broek joined PSV, two players that would shape the squad in the coming years. 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. A 5–1 win against Velocitas from the city of 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 secured the second championship in a 2–1 victory against DWS. Due to World War II, attendances decreased and in 1940, PSV player Johan Brusselers died in combat. After the war, PSV signed two new strikers: Piet Fransen in 1948 and Coen Dillen in 1949. In 1950, PSV got its first post-war success when the team defeated HFC Haarlem in the KNVB Cup final. A year PSV won the district title after EVV failed to win their final match. 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 early 1950s success 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 Rapid Wien ended in 1–6 and 1–0. Other success in the 1950s remained absent but in the 1956–57 season, Dillen scored 43 times, a Dutch record that still stands today; the approaching 1960s marked a shift in player's heritage: the team went from Brabantian men to players nationwide. Representative for this policy were defender Roel Wiersma, who arrived in 1954 and captained the team for a decade, Piet van der Kuil, who came from Ajax for the equivalent of €59,000. Dillen left the club in 1961 after being club top scorer every year from 1953 to 1961. In 1962, Otten decided to quit as chairman of the sports union. By board member Ben van Gelder had 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. In the 1962–63 season, marking PSV's 50-year anniversary, the club appointed Bram Appel as the new coach; the first results were disastrous, with a mere six points earned 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 22 goals. The following year, PSV ended second in the league but more reached the Europa Cup I quarter-finals for the first
