FC Baden is a Swiss football club based in Baden, Canton Aargau which is a short distance from Zürich. It was founded in 1897. FC Baden has a total of 22 different teams at age levels, including 5 women's teams. They currently play in the Swiss 1. Liga, the third tier of Swiss football.


Without a doubt the most successful season the club have had is the 1985/86 season. The club participated in the Swiss Super League but were relegated after finishing last, coming 16th out of 16. Since that time the club was in the Swiss Challenge League where they stayed until relegation in the 2005-06 season. Since that time the club have been in the 3rd tier of the Swiss football pyramid. They narrowly lost out on promotion back to the Challenge League at the end of the 2007/08 season. Over the past few years, due to financial problems, the club have had to rely on young players, as well as loans from local Super League side FC Aarau with whom they have a very good relationship.
