In a splendid fusion of tradition and sports, Grasshopper Club Zurich has launched an exclusive, limited-edition jersey to celebrate the Sächsilüüte, Zurich's cherished spring festival. This unique collaboration not only honors one of Zurich’s oldest traditions but also marks a significant first in the club’s storied history.


Tradition Meets Modern Design


The new Sächsilüüte jersey features an elegant design, combining classic white with vertical stripes and exquisite details in gold, reflecting the high quality and craftsmanship of the piece. The design was unveiled in a striking presentation at the historic Zunft zur Schmiden, with players Abrashi and Ndenge donning the jerseys in the 500-year-old Zunftsaal, adding a touch of historical reverence to the event.


A Nod to Heritage


Incorporating elements of its rich history, the jersey proudly displays the Grasshopper Club logo from 1900 to 1906, an era coinciding with the first burning of the 'Böögg' at Sechseläutenplatz in 1904. This logo is prominently featured on the chest of the jersey, symbolizing the club’s deep roots in Zurich’s cultural heritage.


Exclusive Details


Adding to the exclusivity, the jersey sleeve bears the Sächsilüüte logo in gold, complementing the overall aesthetic. The neck of the jersey is inscribed with 'Sächsilüüte 2024', and a special font is used for the player’s number and name, enhancing the jersey’s unique character.


Limited Edition Offering


True to its exclusive design, only 200 of these jerseys will be made available, each marked with a limited edition number inside the collar. They are packaged in elegant boxes, complete with a certificate of authenticity, making them a collector's item for fans and enthusiasts of both the club and Zurich’s traditions.


Celebrating Zurich's Cultural and Sporting Life


The launch of this jersey is more than just a nod to tradition; it's a celebration of the city's vibrant cultural and sporting life. It bridges generations and brings together fans of football and tradition, celebrating the heritage that makes Zurich unique.
