The Swiss Football Association was established in 1895. But the first unofficial championship, played for the Ruinart Cup, was arranged by the Genevan newspaper La Suisse sportive in 1897. The inaugural official championship of Swiss football was placed in 1898–99 season and won by Anglo-American Club defeated Old Boys Basel.
The clubs from Germany, Italy, and France played in this competition as Serie A, continued from 198 yo 1929. The tournament was reformed into the Nationalliga in 1931 and initially switched from three regional groups to two groups with nine clubs each.
In the 1944–45 season, the league saw the separation into the Nationalliga A and B, with the former champion Swiss competition. FC Biel-Bienne, AC Bellinzona, FC Basel was the victorious team at that time.

The rebranding of the Nationalliga into the Super League happened in 2003 when the league was reformed from 12 to 10 teams for the 2003–04 regular season—simplifying the structure by removing the relegation playoff system.
The Super League is competed for 36 rounds from the end of July to May, with a winter break from mid-December to early February. Each team plays four times with each other, twice at home ground and twice away, in a round-robin system.
