Servette FC is a Swiss football club from Geneva. The club was founded in March 1890 with rugby as its first sporting activity. It is named after the Geneva district of the same name. The football section was founded on 17 January 1900. They play in the Swiss Super League.

Servette is one of Switzerland's most successful clubs. They won 17 national titles and 7 Swiss cups. For most of its history the club was in the highest league.

After the last title 1998 Servette had financial problems. The club was relegated to the third division in 2004–05 due to a bankruptcy. Until this bankruptcy, Servette was the only Swiss club to have remained in the top league since its creation in 1890. Servette was the only club to have never been relegated for sporting reasons, until they finished in last place in the 2012–2013 season.

After the 2005–06 season the club was promoted to the Swiss Challenge League where they stayed until 2011. Servette earned promotion to the Swiss Super League 2011. They were relegated at the end of the 2013 season and came back in 2019.
