Introduction

Apart from Belgium and Germany (if one combines the records of Germany and West Germany), no country played the Netherlands more often than Switzerland, due in part to both countries remaining neutral during the interbellum and in part to football remaining an amateur sport for a long time in both countries. Until 1960, the two met roughly once every two years, trading hosting rights from friendly to friendly.

The head-to-head record is very balanced, mostly because both tended to make most of home advantage. Historically, Zürich and Basel are the most unprofitable venues for Oranje.
