This is a list of association football clubs based in Switzerland, sorted by league and division within the Swiss football league system, as of the 2016–17 season. A total of 78 clubs compete in the top four tiers of the Swiss football pyramid, divided as follows:

  • Super League (top level with 10 clubs, fully professional)
  • Challenge League (second level with 10 clubs, fully professional)
  • Promotion League (third level with 16 clubs, mixed semi-professional and amateur)
  • 1. League (fourth level with 42 clubs, comprising three regional groups with 14 clubs each, mixed semi-professional and amateur)

The Swiss football league system also includes clubs based in Liechtenstein. As of 2016, Liechtenstein has only seven clubs and no domestic league, though a domestic cup is organised annually. All clubs based in Liechtenstein therefore play in the Swiss league pyramid. Of those, only FC Vaduz competes in the fully professional levels of the Swiss league system, presently at the top level.
