The first-ever women’s football club was founded in Zurich in 1968. Soon afterwards, other female football clubs began springing up across the country.

A national women’s league was formed in 1970 and the first championship took place the same year. The Zurich team was eventually renamed FC Zurich Ladies in 2008.
