The Switzerland women's national football team represents Switzerland in international women's football.[1] The team played its first match in 1972. Their most recent competition is qualification for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, and they had qualified as the best team in their group. It would be the first time that Switzerland participated in a women's World Cup, and the first time both the men's team and women's team qualified for a World Cup simultaneously.[2][3][4] Switzerland qualified for the European Championship for the first time in 2017. They have never qualified for the Olympic games.
