Chart of FC Baden table positions in the Swiss football league system

In the 1985–86 season, the club participated in the Swiss Super League but were relegated after finishing last, coming 16th out of 16. After 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 third 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,[when?] 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.[citation needed]
