FC Basel
1900–01 season
Chairman Switzerland Ernst-Alfred Thalmann
First team coach unknown
Ground Landhof, Basel
Serie A East group 5th

The FC Basel 1900–01 season was their eighth season since the clubs foundation on 15 November 1893. The clubs chairmann was Ernst-Alfred Thalmann. He was the fourth chairmann in the clubs history. FC Basel played their home games in the Landhof in the Quarter Kleinbasel.


The first national championship in Switzerland took place in 1897–98. This championship is considered as unofficial because it was not organized by the Swiss Football Association (SFA; founded in 1895). FC Basel did not participate in this first championship. But they did in the second edition during the season 1898–99.[1] The club did not compete in the following season either. But they have participated in every season since.

The Serie A 1900–01 was divided into two groups, an east and a west group. Basel were with three teams from Zürich, Grasshopper Club Zürich, FC Zürich, Fire Flies Zürich and two other teams from Basel, Old Boys and Fortuna Basel. There were four teams in the west group. Basel ended the season with two victories, two draws and six defeats in 5th position in their group. From this east group the Grasshoppers qualified themselves for the finals against FC Bern, who were the winners of the west group.
