The Switzerland women's national football team represents Switzerland in international women's football.[2] The team played its first match in 1972.

Switzerland qualified for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada by winning their qualifying group. It was 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.[3][4]

At the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, Switzerland was drawn into Group C with Japan, Cameroon and Ecuador. They secured a 10-1 victory over Ecuador, but lost 1-0 to Japan and 2-1 to Cameroon. Switzerland finished third in their group, but they were one of the top four third place finishers and advanced to the knockout round. In the Round of 16, Switzerland lost 1-0 to the hosts, Team Canada and were eliminated.[5]

Switzerland qualified for the European Championship for the first time in 2017. They were placed in Group C alongside France, Austria and Iceland. They lost to Austria 1-0, but then rebounded to beat Iceland 2-1. Switzerland went into their final group match against France needing a win in order to advance to the knockout stage. Switzerland led for much of the match after Ana-Maria Crnogor?evi? scored in the 19th minute, but Camille Abily scored the equalizer for France in the 76th minute, and the match ended in a 1-1 draw, as a result Switzerland finished third in their group and did not advance.

Switzerland has never qualified for the Olympic games.
