Grasshopper Club Zürich was founded on 1 September 1886 and is one of the most successful clubs in Swiss football history.

Grasshoppers was Swiss champion 27 times and won the Swiss Cup 19 times. In addition, it won the UEFA Intertoto Cup twice, in 2006 and 2008.
Since 1951, the club has played continuously in the highest league, until 2019. GC finished last and were relegated to the Challenge League. After two seasons, the club returned to the Super League.

Grasshopper Club Zürich is a development club and has always had an important youth department. The club focuses its strategy both sportingly and commercially on the successful education of young talent. The goal is to provide the individual player with the best possible environment so that he can train optimally and improve his athletic and personal skills. GC is one of the leading clubs in working with youth. Every year new talents flow through to the 1st team.

Players who have recently been scouted from GC’s youth academy are Esey Gebreyesus, who plays for Olympique Marseille U19, Nedim Bajrami, Cédric Zesiger and Bruno Ogbus, who play for respectively FC Empoli, Young Boys and SC Freiburg U17. Zesinger even made his debut for the Swiss national team recently.

The Grasshoppers team that participates in the KST plays in the U-18-Gruppe A, the highest division in Switzerland. In 2019, the team became national champion and currently it is firmly in the upper table part. However, a renewed championship is out of sight. The team has a youth international, Damian Nigg was recently included in the squad of Switzerland U17.
