AC Bellinzona was a Swiss football club based in Bellinzona. It was founded in 1904, and won the Swiss Super League in 1948.
Since Bellinzona is an Italian-speaking region, many Italian Serie A clubs loan youth players to the club to get first team experience.
Bellinzona was promoted to the Swiss Super League after beating St. Gallen 5–2 on aggregate in the relegation play-off following the 2007–2008 season. Bellinzona will play at the top level in 2008–2009 season for the first time since the 1989–90 season. As finalists in the Swiss Cup, the team also qualified for the 08-09 UEFA Cup where it beat Ararat Yerevan of Armenia in the 1st qualifying round.
