Pascal Schürpf (born 15 July 1989, in Basel) is a Swiss footballer who plays as a midfielder or striker. He has a professional contract with FC Basel, but currently playing out on loan to Vaduz.


Schürpf started his football in the youth system at BSC Old Boys before joining the youth system of FC Basel in 1999. He started his senior football in Basel's under-21 squad and scored 32 goals in 42 appearances. On 29 May 2008 he signed his first professional contract with the club.[1] This has since been renewed and his new contract is valid to June 2014.[2]

During the 2008/09 season, Schürpf was loaned out to FCB's city neighbours, FC Concordia Basel, where he played fourteen games and scored five goals. In the 2009–10 Swiss Super League season he returned to FCB and played his Swiss Super League debut on 14 February 2010 as substitute in the 3:1 away win against Neuchâtel Xamax. Schürpf won the national Double with Basel. During the next season Schürpf scored his first League goal for Basel on 21 August 2010 in the 1:1 away draw against FC Thun.[3] However, Schürpf played only a total of eleven first team appearances in the Swiss Super League during the two seasons following his return.

Therefore he was loaned out to FC Lugano in the Challenge League until the end of the season.[2] He made his debut in the Lugano colours in the 2:1 home win against FC Vaduz on 21 February 2011. His first goal for Lugano was the winning goal in the 3:2 away win against FC Biel-Bienne.

For the season 2011/12 he was recalled to Basel. In July 2011 he played with Basel in the Uhrencup and won the tournament. But during the first half of the season he only played in three league matches. Again, therefore, he was loaned out to gain playing experience. This time to FC Aarau, again in the Challenge League. In Aarau his contract was over one and a half years.[4] However, the loan was cancelled in August 2012 and he returned to Basel to play for the reserve team in the 1. Liga Promotion, the third highest tier of Swiss football.

On 31 January 2013 it was announced that Schürpf is loaned out to Bellinzona[5] so that he could gain playing experience in a higher league.
