Die Nati

Not many people would agree that this country, which is situated in the snow-covered Alps, is a football fanatic nation. But it is! The “Nati” continued to enhance that we can expect to see them not only in Europe but also all over the world. The Swiss team participated in the World Championship™ for the first time in 1934 and reached the quarter final back then. There has been no turning back since. During their partnership with PUMA the team participated in the last three FIFA World Championships™ and reached the round of the last sixteen in 2006.
