Who  We Are

Our mission at BIFC is twofold: to afford all children that want to play football the opportunity to do so and to be one of the best youth football clubs in Basel. We believe it’s possible to be both inclusive and play at a high level. We believe we will reach our goals by continuing to value community, diversity and hard work. When we think of our young club, we are all genuinely filled with pride. We are proud of the sense of camaraderie we have fostered in just a couple of years. We are proud that we are comprised of children from all over the world, representing twenty-four countries. We might speak different languages and have different cultures but this makes us very special and unique and we all share the passion of Football!  We are very proud of all our teams that put forth their best efforts every time they step on the pitch. We expanded our girls Program from one team in the Spring of 2019 to four girls only teams in the fall of 2020! In looking toward the future, we will continue to take great pride in dreaming big and working hard together to achieve our goals. Allez allez BIFC!

Our Club At a Glance

BIFC was founded out of a growing need in the Basel area to provide a welcoming Football Club that was geared towards the International Community.

It all started on a field in Bruderholz were the kids met and played for fun. The interest was high and it was soon clear to found an official Club and become part of the Football Association. It was challenging for our members to join local clubs due long waitlists and a lack of experience.

The “football for all” approach was the spark and the Basel International Football Club was born. Everyone was welcome no matter who they were, the language they speak, their skill level or where they were from.
