The International School Sports League (ISSL)

The International School Sports League (ISSL) creates competition between our five ‘local’ schools in the Eastern part of Switzerland. These schools are ICS, International School of Zug & Luzern (ISZL), Zürich International School (ZIS), International School of Basel (ISB), and The American School in Switzerland (TASIS).

These schools have a long rivalry in a wide range of sports and have always played matches and tournaments against each other. The results of the fixtures during the season count towards the ISSL League Championship standings. The winning team will have their name engraved on and keep a travelling championship plaque for the year and will pass it on to the following year’s champions.
