The Philips Stadion (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈfilɪps ˌstaːdijɔn]) is a football stadium in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and it is the home of PSV (Philips Sport Vereniging), also known as PSV Eindhoven. With a capacity of 35,000, it is the third-largest football stadium in the country. Established as the Philips Sportpark, it was constructed as a sports field for Philips employees in 1910. The Philips Elftal played football matches from 1911 until 1913, when the team was succeeded by PSV. Since 1913, PSV has used the original ground as its home stadium.To visit Philips Stadion on your trip to Eindhoven, use our Eindhoven vacation tool.
The stadium has gone through several extensions in its history: after a wooden stand in 1916, seating and standing places slowly enclosed the field throughout the first decades. Two extensive renovations in the 1970s and 1990s first created a covered stadium, and then a two-tiered ground with extensive commercial spaces. The completion of the four corners in 2002 eventually led to its current capacity.
The Philips Stadion currently holds a four-star rating by UEFA. It has hosted a range of Netherlands national team fixtures since 1971. In 2013, PSV's reserve team, Jong PSV, also played their league matches at the stadium. They now play their games at the training complex De Herdgang. Furthermore, the Philips Stadion was the location for three UEFA Euro 2000 group stage matches, as well as the 2006 UEFA Cup Final. Aside from football-related purposes, the ground is occasionally used for music concerts.

I went to PSV v Heerneevan, was an excellent game in and excellent stadia. People all seemed to be polite, great atmosphere etc. Only thing I didn't like was the 'Card' system to get drinks inside..... more »
Amazing place. Paid parking unfortunately. 6 euros per day on the side of the stadium facing the rail road tracks.
Went to see the Netherland women warm up game against Australia women. The crowd was rocking. The stadium was fine, hard to find parking but we lucked out. We had covered stands which was nice to beat the sun. Seats where fine, no complaints.
