30 years of partnership

In 2023, Credit Suisse is celebrating its 30-year partnership with the Swiss Football Association (SFV). Thanks to its long-standing commitment as main partner, Credit Suisse has made a significant contribution to the development of Swiss football – from grassroots level to the professional leagues.


Since the beginning of the partnership, the junior and senior national teams have regularly reached the World Cup and European Championship final tournaments, and skilled children and adolescents have been actively supported to develop young talent. There are national school and club tournaments for children to enable them to play and enjoy football. Credit Suisse's commitment to the SFV is recognized throughout Europe as an outstanding example of successful support for young talent. Since 1993, the bank has invested 50% of its sponsorship funds in training and developing young footballers.

Documentary series "The Pressure Game"

The six-part series entitled "The Pressure Game – Im Herzen der Schweizer Nati" [At the Heart of the Swiss National Team] focuses on the incredible pressure that players are exposed to. With surprising openness, they explain how they deal with competition within the team, how much they are affected by the responsibility to keep their body functioning properly, and what it means to face the opposing team in a full stadium.

The series gives the audience the opportunity to dive unusually deep into the footballers' emotional world after exiting the World Cup. The pressure to be successful and to force yourself back to peak performance after losing a game is ever-present. "The Pressure Game – Im Herzen der Schweizer Nati" also addresses emotions about background and the pride of playing for the Swiss national team in a close, intimate, and human way.

Credit Suisse has been involved in this series from the very beginning and, as the exclusive sponsor, has made it possible to produce the series together with SRG SSR, the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation. This support for the six-part SRG SSR series forms part of Credit Suisse's celebrations to mark its 30-year partnership with the Swiss Football Association. Credit Suisse is also offering its employees and clients access to exclusive footage from the series on this website.
