Visit the Philips Stadium during your football trip

When PSV was established they instantly started playing in the Philips Stadium, which was known as the Philips Sportpark back then. The stadium is located in the vicinity of Philips village. This is a village created by Anton Philips to give his employees a roof over their heads. A pitch was constructed where Philips employees were able to play football after working. The Philips Elftal – PSV’s predecessor – was founded because of this. A stand was built where people could watch the team play. Several more stands were erected, but WWII destroyed these, unfortunately. A reconstruction took place and a stadium with a capacity of 36,500 was created.
