PSV Eindhoven joins The European Football for Development Network

The European Football for Development Network and PSV Eindhoven are pleased to announce they are going to work together, as PSV is a new member of the network.

PSV, internationally known as PSV Eindhovenis a sports club from Eindhoven, Netherlands. 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 23 times, the KNVB Cup nine times and the Johan Cruyff Shield ten times. Currently, PSV is 28th on the UEFA club coefficients ranking. Throughout the years, PSV established itself as a stepping stone for future world class players. Since its foundation, it has played in the Philips Stadion and has upheld its club colours (red and white).


Community Care is one of the club’s five core values. For many years, the club has organised and guided projects with which it tries to have a positive influence on the present society. The club used to do this under the flag of PSV in the Community. PSV are aware of its special position in the community and realise that it should embrace its social responsibility as one of the biggest football clubs in the Netherlands. The clubs feels honoured and privileged to provide a positive contribution to the community. The (prize-winning) projects carried out by the PSV Foundation include, among other things, PSV United, the Dutch Street Cup, Scoring with Education, PSV OldStars, the annual visit that players pay to the children’s wards in hospitals and Playing for Success.
