FC Basel since August 2002

I began following FC Basel after attending their Champions League qualifying win against Glasgow Celtic in August 2002, when they first qualified for the Champions League. Ever since, they've always finished in the top three in Switzerland while also regularly performing well in European club competions, including qualifying for the Conference League semifinal this year (with a shot at the final in the second leg on Thursday). They've never really tested me with a truly bad season. Even if they finish out of the top three in Switzerland this year, which is still possible, their Conference League run has made it a historic season, whether or not they win the tournament.
