Grasshopper Zurich 2016/17 Kit Range Unveiled

Once the dominant force in Swiss football, Grasshopper Zurich have not won the title in more than a decade.

Arguably, their European heyday was in the late 1970s when they were beaten in the UEFA Cup semi-final by Bastia in 1978. The following season, they lost to eventual winners Nottingham Forest in the Champions Cup quarter-final, having beaten Real Madrid in the previous round.

The club is 130 years old in September 2016 and there could be no better way to mark that anniversary with a return to the top of the Swiss league.

Grasshopper Zurich 2016/17 Home Kit

This is the Grasshopper Zurich home kit for the coming 2016/17 season.


The shirt is blue and white halves. If it seems familiar to English football fans, the design is similar to that which the founder Tom E. Griffith, educated at the Manchester Grammar School, purchased in 1886. Griffith was most likely a supporter of Blackburn Rovers, the area’s dominant professional team at the time.

The club has remained true to the colour scheme since with white shorts and socks completing the kit. Both feature blue trim.

Grasshopper Zurich 2016/17 Away Kit

This is the away kit Grasshopper Zurich will wear during the 2016/17 season.


Complete with a white grasshopper motif on the rear collar, the all – orange kit is a bright contrast to the blue and white of the home strip.

The shirt features white pinstripes down the front with a solid round collar feeding white stripes across the shoulders and sleeves.

Matching the colour of the shirt, the shorts and socks are both orange with white accents.
