Philips Stadion History

PSV have played football at the location of the Philips Stadion as far back as 1913 when the stadium was referred to as Philips Sportpark.

Situated within the Strijp area of Eindhoven, the stadion is located within the Philipsdorp neighbourhood which was created by Anton Philips in 1910 to be used as accommodation for workers of his company. PSV football club was then established three years as another gift to employees.

By 1916 the football pitch had its first wooden stand capable of accommodating over 550 views, and by the 1930s the capacity doubled as a new 900 seater stand was also erected.

Damaged during the second world war, the previously added athletics track was removed in 1958, with the Philips Stadion really coming to its own with the installation of floodlights which were inaugurated with a match against Belgian side Anderlecht.

PSV’s ground underwent two extensive renovations in the late 1980s and early 1990s in order to give the stadium its form today with the brand new two tiered main stand baptised with a friendly match against dominate Italian side A.C Milan in 1988.

In preparation for Euro 2000 where PSV’s stadium was scheduled to host three group matches, the remaining older stands were elevated as to create uniformity in the ground’s appearance.

The most recent significant renovation occurred during the 2000-2001 season when the four corners of the stadium were filled in, giving Philips Stadion it’s current capacity of 36,000.

Not quite large enough to host a Champions League final, UEFA designated PSV’s ground as a four star stadium and in 2006 it hosted the UEFA Cup final between Middlesbrough and Sevilla with the Spanish side winning 4 nil.

There are currently no plans to expand the stadium further with plans to expand the ground to 45,000 fell through after Holland’s bid to host the 2018 Fifa World Cup failed.

The club officially state that a PSV Club Card is a mandatory requirement when purchasing ticket, however there is conflicting reports as to whether this is very rigorously enforced.

An easy option is to perhaps purchase online from ViaGoGo who usually have a decent number of tickets.
