Grasshopper Club Zürich Frauen is a Swiss women's football team from Schwerzenbach, Zürich representing Grasshopper Club Zürich in the Frauen Nationalliga A.[1]

Founded in 1974 as FFC Schwerzenbach, the team played for the first in the top level in 1989. Three years later Schwerzenbach won its first trophy, the 1992 national cup, and in 1999 it won the championship. FFC Bern prevented a double defeating Schwerzenbach in the cup's final in a penalty shootout.

While the team's standings subsequently ranged between the 3rd and second-to-last spots,[2] Schwerzenbach won two more national cups in 2003 and 2008 and represented Switzerland in the 2004 European Cup.[3] Following the 2008 success it became Grasshopper's women's section.

Following a bronze in its debut season, Grasshopper was the championship's runner-up in 2010. In the three next seasons it has ended in mid-table positions.[4]
