PSV were founded in 1913 by electronics company Philips and Eindhoven is referred to as the ‘city of light’ so it's a fitting tribute that Umbro have dressed this kit around a #LightUpTheFuture campaign referencing the clubs roots along with the five year partnership that the club has embarked on with the double diamonds.

Both kits have been designed bespoke for the Dutch title winners, no templates here - both are truly unique. For the home, the lightweight red and white striped home shirt has a black collar with gold overlay in a nod to PSV’s status as champions. The buttons up collar with buttons concealed round off the shirt to a smart tune. The iconic PSV woven club crest features two gold stars above it, to symbolise the 22 league titles the club has won. The shaped dropped hem gives the shirt a smart fit and the contrast side panels have black and gold insert detail.
