Switzerland can look back proudly on its long footballing history. In some ways, it is quite literally the home of football, with two of football’s most important governing bodies based here: FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) in Zurich and UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) in Nyon.
Founded in 1895, the Swiss Football Association (ASF/SFV) controls all aspects of the game at national and local level. Its members include 1,414 associations, 12,887 teams and around 231,000 players.
In 1905 the Swiss national team travelled to Paris to play its first match against France. In the years that followed the team went from strength to strength, culminating in the silver medal at the 1924 Olympic Games.
In 1954 Switzerland hosted the World Cup. It was the first time that matches were broadcast on television, signalling a new era for sports reporting. For many Germans, the final held in the Swiss capital is still fondly remembered as the “Wunder von Bern” (the miracle of Berne), with Germany winning 3-2 against tournament favourites Hungary. The victory would boost the morale of an entire nation, still struggling to cope with the aftermath of the Second World War.
After decades in the football wilderness, the Swiss national team made a successful international comeback, qualifying for the 1994 and 2006 World Cups and the 1996 and 2004 UEFA European Championships. In 2008, the UEFA European Championship, hosted jointly by Switzerland and Austria, has seen the national team battle it out in front of a home crowd against the best teams in Europe.

UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
