Dictionary of Dutchness


The letters that form the name of Eindhoven football club PSV stand for Philips’ Sport Vereniging (association) – the club was set up in 1913 for workers at the Philips factory. Outsiders first played for the club in 1928. PSV took the first of its many national titles in the following year. The club’s golden era was in the late 1980s when it won the Dutch league title six times between 1986 and 1992.
