    FC Sion is a Swiss football team from the city of Sion. The club was founded in 1909, and play their home games at the Stade Tourbillon. They have won the Swiss Super League twice, and the Swiss Cup in each of their twelve appearances in the final, the most recent being in 2011.

    The first team is also known as Olympique des Alpes SA, as Swiss Football League (the top two levels) requires football clubs to be run as companies.

    FC Sion History

    FC Sion were founded in 1909 by Robert Gilliard, who became club captain, and played their first game, a 3–2 win against FC Aigle, the same year.[1] The club grew thanks to contributions from local people, and played their first competitive league fixture in 1914, again a 3–2 victory, this time against FC Monthey. In 1919 Sion formally organised its managerial structure, with Gilliard becoming Vice President, and Charles Aymon taking Presidency.[1]

    From 1932 Sion played in the fourth tier of Swiss football, where they spent much of the next twenty years, briefely interrupted by promotion to the third tier in 1944, quickly followed by relegation in 1946. In 1952 Sion returned to the third tier, and five years later gained promotion again to the National League B, followed five years later by promotion to the National League A (now the Swiss Super League) in 1962.[1] 1965 saw the first of FC Sion's Swiss Cup wins, with a 2–1 victory over Servette FC.

    The 16,263 capacity Stade Tourbillon was officially opened in August 1968, but was followed by relegation in 1969. Sion returned to the National League A at the first attempt, and secured a second victory in the Swiss Cup, winning 3–2 against Neuchâtel Xamax in 1974. Sion would go on to consistently perform well in the Swiss Cup, with victories in 1980 (vs Young Boys), 1982 (vs FC Basel), 1986 (vs Servette FC) and 1991 (vs Young Boys).[1] This period of success also saw the renovation and expansion of the Tourbillon in 1989, and was crowned with Sion's first Swiss League Championship in 1992.

    More success in the Swiss Cup followed, winning the tournament in three consecutive years from 1995 with victories over Grasshopper Zurich, Servette FC and FC Luzern. Their win against FC Luzern in 1997 secured FC Sion their only domestic double, having also won the Swiss League.[1]

    However the club quickly fell into financial trouble, and having narrowly avoided bankruptcy due to its purchase by Christian Constantin, and they were re-instated into the second division in October 2003.

    Constantin spent the following seasons rebuilding the club, with the club getting through twenty managers in the following eight years, including taking the role himself twice, in a bid to financially stabalise.[2] He was rewarded in 2006 with promotion back to the Super League, as well as a victory in the Swiss Cup, becoming the first second tier team to achieve this, with a 5–3 penalty shoot-out victory over Young Boys after a 1–1 draw.

    FC Sion Transfer ban saga

    In 2008, controversy came to Sion when they signed Essam El-Hadary, leading to a two-year "registration period" ban for Sion from June 2009, and an international playing ban for El-Hadary for four months,[3][4] due to El-Hadary still being under contract at his former club Al Ahly.[5] FC Sion appealed this action, but the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland confirmed the FIFA, DRC and CAS decisions in 2009 and 2010 respectively.[6] However the lengthy legal battle (including the temporary reprieve), meant that the ban was only practically instituted first in the winter window of 2010–11 season.[7]

    Although gaining a place in the qualifying round of the 2011–12 Europa League by winning the previous season's Swiss Cup, Sion were excluded from the Europa League by UEFA after fielding ineligible players in their play-off victory over Celtic.[8] On 2 September, the Swiss Football League rejected the registration of one more player, Brian Amofa.[9]

    On 30 September 2011, the SFL decided to provisionally qualify the six new signings, namely Stefan Glarner, Billy Ketkeophomphone, Mario Mutsch, Pascal Feindouno, José Gonçalves and Gabri García, to comply with the ongoing legal process.[10] FC Sion also sued SFL and UEFA respectively in the Tribunal Cantonal de Valais and the Tribunal in Vaud, however both actions were dismissed.[11][12] The club's earlier appeal was dismissed by UEFA Appeals Body on 13 September.[13] FC Sion also sued SFL and UEFA in CAS, but withdrew the former claim. The hearing of the latter claim was set on 24 November.[14]

    On 25 October, the Discipline Commission (fr: Commission de discipline) of SFL suspended all six players for five games.[15] It was reported that each player filed their legal claim in civil court instead of using the Swiss FA and CAS "sports court" system, which the ban was requested by FIFA.[citation needed] On 27 October, as a "provisional and super-provisional measures",[16] UEFA invited FC Sion to a match schedule consultation once UEFA lost the legal battle.[17]

    On 31 October 2011, Sion sent a complaint to the European Commission.[18] FIFA also won the legal battle in civil court in November. Previously the civil court of Martigny and Saint-Maurice (both city of Valais) ordered FIFA to confirm the signing of those six players on 3 August, a consequence of law suit brought out by the players. On 16 November, the FIFA and SFL appeal was upheld in the Valais canton court.[19]

    On 15 December, CAS upheld the complaints by UEFA, affirming its right to discipline Sion according to previous agreements. CAS also lifted the provisional measures ordered by the Tribunal Cantonal of Vaud (Cour civile) on 5 October 2011.[20] After the ruling, FIFA threatened to suspend Swiss national and club teams from international competition if FC Sion were not appropriately penalized for its ostensible rules violations.[21] In late December 2011, the Swiss Football Association complied with FIFA's demands and penalized Sion 36 standings points (based on how many matches ineligible players were involved), moving the club to last place in the league standings and putting the club at risk of relegation if the ruling stands.[22]

    They finished the 2011–12 Season at the 9th place which qualified them to the relegation matches against FC Aarau who they defeated 3–1 on aggregate and stayed in the Swiss Super League. Had they not had 36 points deducted from their season, they would have finished in the 3rd place, which would have qualified them into the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League. Before the start of the 2012–13 season, they made a major coup by signing Gennaro Gattuso and Kyle Lafferty, both signed on free transfers. The team, however, had a disappointing season, which saw them change coaches three times before settling on Gattuso to finish of the season, and finished in 6th place.
