History
• Founded on 14 March 1898 by grammar school pupils Max and Oskar Schwab, Hermann Bauer and Franz Kehrli, the original FC Young Boys' name was a tribute to popular Basel side BSC Old Boys; already wearing their traditional black-and-yellow hoops, the Berne side were titlewinners in 1903, 1909, 1910 and 1911.

• In 1925, the club took up residence in its own Wankdorf stadium and also changed name from FC to BSC – Berner Sportclub. Under that new title, they beat FC Aarau 1-0 to win their first Swiss Cup in 1930. The Wankdorf staged the 1954 FIFA World Cup final, with West Germany's 3-2 comeback win against Hungary immortalised as 'Das Wunder von Bern'.

• German coach Albert Sing joined Young Boys in 1951, and oversaw a period of unprecedented success, with two more cups as well as four successive league titles between 1957 and 1960. The club also shone in continental competition, reaching the 1958/59 European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-finals but losing 3-1 on aggregate to Stade de Reims Champagne.

• Another German, Kurt Linder, ended a barren spell for the club with a Swiss Cup victory in 1977, while Alexander Madziara led them to both of their most recent successes; the 1986 title and the 1987 Swiss Cup.

• In the 1990s Young Boys were twice relegated from the top division, but their wilderness years ended with promotion in 2001, the club returning to Europe in 2003 for the first time since 1994. The new Stade de Suisse Wankdorf opened in 2005, hosting games at UEFA EURO 2008, and the club finished as league runners-up in successive seasons in 2009 and 2010.
