The senior team of Grasshopper Club Zurich has been preparing for the 2019/20 championship since 12 June 2019. After the two successful test matches, the next opponent will be Servette FC on Saturday (match played behind closed doors)

The Hoppers have made a successful start to their preparations for the 2019/20 season. With a 3:0 against SCR Altach and a 3:2 against FC Rapperswil-Jona, both matches were won. Next Saturday, 29 June 2019, the next test match against Servette FC is on the schedule. The match will be played behind closed doors due to requirements from the police and stadium operators.

In the meantime, the national players (Pusic, N. Bajrami, Zesiger, Mata and Asllani) have also returned to the team and are building up their stamina. From 2 July 2019, the first team will be in a training camp in the Bernese mountains, before taking on FC Schaffhausen on Saturday, 6 July 2019, in their next test match. The match against FC Schaffhausen will kick off at 4:00 pm on the GC/Campus.
