Of the Yverdon Sport FC is a Swiss football club from Yverdon-les-Bains in the canton of Vaud. The club plays in the Challenge League, the second-highest Swiss division in Switzerland.

The club was formed on July 1, 1948 through a merger of FC Yverdon (established 1897), des FC Concordia and the club White Star founded and plays in the Stade Municipal.

The football club from French-speaking Switzerland was promoted to the top Swiss league, the Super League, for the third time in 2005. The people of Vaud won the championship in the Challenge League and were thus qualified for promotion to the highest Swiss league. That was the 3rd rise after 1993 and 1999.

Due to the higher TV money there and better earning opportunities in marketing, the club planned a budget of CHF 3.4 to 4 million for the 2005/06 season. However, the team was relegated after just one season in 2006.

In the 2016/2017 season, as a 1st league champion, they were promoted to the Promotion League.[1] Promotion to the Challenge League followed in 2021.

The club’s women’s team has played in the top division, the National League A, since the 2006/07 season and has successfully established itself there. It split off in 2007 as an independent club FC Yverdon Féminin. In the 2009/10 season, they won the Swiss Cup Women as the first team from Romandy since 1977.
