Wilhelm Huber, best known as Willy Huber (born 17 December 1913, date of death unknown)[2] was a Swiss football goalkeeper who played for Switzerland in the FIFA World Cup in 1934 and 1938.[3][4] He also played for Grasshopper Club Zürich. He was Switzerland's Goalkeeper of the Year in 1937, 1942 and 1943.[5]

Career[edit]

Huber played for FC La Sarraz and for FC Blue Stars Zürich before he played for Grasshopper Club Zürich, with whom he won the Swiss championship in 1936-37, 1938–39, 1941–42 and 1942–43 and the Swiss Cup in 1933-34, 1936–37, 1937–38, 1939–40, 1940–41, 1941–42, 1942–43, thus winning the double in 1936-37, 1941–42 and 1942-43. Only Severino Minelli and Alfred Bickel, with eight victories each, have won the cup more often than his seven cup victories, and otherwise only Hermann Springer has equalled this total.[6]

He ended his career at FC Zürich.
