PSV have booked a place in the UEFA Cup Round of 32, after finishing third in the UEFA Champions League qualifying group G. PSV last took part in the UEFA Cup competition in the 2003/04 season, when they were eliminated in the quarter finals by Newcastle United.

PSV won the 1977/78 UEFA Cup by defeating SEC Bastia from France 3-0 on aggregate over two legs. The Eindhoven had never progressed beyond the quarter finals in their previous campaigns. The draw for the UEFA Cup Round of 32 and for the Round of 16 will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon in Switzerland on Friday 21 December. At noon, the draw for the UEFA Champions League first knockout round will first be made and one hour later, at 1pm, the UEFA Cup draws will be staged.
PSV, one of the eight clubs joining the competition from the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, will be drawn against one of the runners-up of a given group. The group winners of a given group shall be drawn against one of the third-ranked teams from another group. The final group stage fixtures are scheduled for next week Wednesday and Thursday.
Two things are for sure, ahead of the draw: PSV will play the first leg at home and will not be paired with AZ, as clubs from the same association shall not be drawn each other in the Round of 32. The Round of 32 first legs are scheduled for 13 and 14 February, while the return legs will be played on Thursday 21 February.
