The first home game was on May 26, 2012 against the fifth Team of FC St. Pauli in Domat/Ems and Raetia won 6 to 0.
Raetia was qualified to play the 2012 VIVA World Cup in the northern Iraqi region of Kurdistan. In the group matches they gained a victory against Tamil Eelam and a loss to Zanzibar the 2nd rank and missed the semi-finals only because of goal difference.
The National Anthem of Raetia is "A Tgalaveina":
Udis il clom en la vallada?
Si, si vus umens dils cumins!
La libertad el smanatschada,
Igl inimitg ei sils confins.
Fontana muoss'a nus la via atras
Ils flugs //dils battagliuns//.
Plitost la mort che sclaveria
Ei la parola dils Grischuns.
