The Zurich State Spartans are an American football club from Dübendorf in the canton of Zurich.[1] The club was founded in 2016 and plays in the National League C of the Swiss American Football Association


The Zurich State Spartans were founded in 2016 by two former National League A (Switzerland) players. The founding and venue of the home games is the municipality of Dübendorf in the canton of Zurich. The goal of the Spartans is to further establish the sport of American Football in Switzerland.[2] The Spartans are a member of the Swiss American Football Association (SAFV) and the Zurich Cantonal Football Association (ZKFV).


The Spartans have a junior program (U19 tackle football) in addition to the Firstteam (Seniors):

  • Seniors (Tacklefootball)

The Firstteam (Seniors) under the leadership of Headcoach Frank Bühler comprises about 70 active players at the beginning of 2021 and will be further expanded.[3]

  • Juniors (U19 Tacklefootball)

The Zurich State Spartans junior division was formed in the summer of 2019 and is under the direction of U19 head coach Flavio Greco. The junior division remains in development following 2019 and 2020.[4]


The still very young club could already celebrate its first success in 2020. The Fall Bowl, which took place due to the canceled regular season (Covid-19 conditional), could be won. The Spartans prevailed in the final with 14:3 against the Schaffhausen Sharks.[5]
