FC Aarau is a Swiss football club, based in Aarau. They play in the Swiss Challenge League, the second tier of Swiss football after being relegated from Swiss Super League.
FC Aarau was formed on 26 May 1902 by workers from a local brewery. The early days of the club were a success and they won the Swiss championship in 1911/12 and then again in 1913/14. The club spent 25 years, from 1907–1933, in the top league but were relegated to the lower league and were unable to return to the top flight for a number of decades. In the 1980/81 season the club were able to return to the top league in the Swiss football pyramid after a 3–1 victory over Vevey-Sports. They have stayed there ever since and in the 1992/93 season they won the Swiss National League A managed by Austrian Rolf Fringer.
