Description

The Philips Stadion is located in the city of Eindhoven, Netherlands. It is the permanent home ground of PSV, a football club founded in 1913. The stadium is capable of hosting 35,000 people, which makes it the third-biggest stadium in the Netherlands. It is mainly used for football games.

The history of the stadium began in 1910 when the Koninklijke Philips N.V. decided to build a sports field for their employees. At that time the ground was known as Philips Sportpark. The ground was used by Philips Elftal for two years (1911-1913) and then was replaced by the newly founded team PSV.

The capacity of the stadium has been increased several times. In 1916, there was a wooden stand installed with seats and standing places. The second renovation was conducted in the 1970s when the stadium became covered. In twenty years, commercial facilities were built in the stadium. Finally, thanks to the renovation of the stadium conducted in 2002, it obtained its current capacity.

UEFA has given the stadium a rating of 4 stars out of 5. Since 1971, the stadium was a venue for fixtures of the national team. It has also been used for different non-sportive events, including music concerts.
