Jong PSV De Kuip, commonly known as Jong PSV, is a Dutch professional football club based in Rotterdam. The club was founded on 14 October 1908 and competes in the Eredivisie, the top tier of Dutch football.
The first major Dutch club to field a team in the international sport of association football was Rotterdam-based De Geer’s PAK, which fielded a team in the second Dutch National Amateur Football Championship in 1898. However, it was not until 1908 that Rotterdam-based SC Feijenoord – then known as Feijenoord Athletic Club – organized its first football match, which resulted in a 1–1 draw with Feijenoord’s city rivals Feyenoord. The following year, SC Feijenoord organized the Dutch National Football Championship, which saw Feyenoord crowned champions. Jong PSV was then formed on 14 October 1908, as Feijenoord merged with two other clubs, SV Wimbledon (which fielded a team in the English football league system) and HVV (the rugby club of HAC), to form SC Feijenoord. The newly formed club played its first ever match, a 2–1 victory over HVV, in January 1909.
Jong PSV’s first major success came in the 1927–28 Dutch National Football League (KNVB) season, when the club finished as runners-up behind champions Ajax. The following season, Jong PSV won its first Dutch National Football Championship title, which culminated in a 5–1 victory over Ajax in the Dutch Championship Final. The club also reached the semi-finals of the European Cup in the 1957–58 season, where they were beaten 2–1 by Barcelona. The club reached another European semifinal the following season, this time losing out to Real Madrid. The club also won the Dutch Cup in 1949 and 1973. Jong PSV has also won the Dutch Super Cup twice, in 1965 and 2010. The club has qualified for European competition every season since the 1957–58 season, with the exception of the 1994–95 season, which was the club’s last appearance in European competition. The club has also played in the Dutch Cup final thirty-six times, winning it on thirteen occasions.
