Almost all matches went to form in the 1986 SAFV (Schweizerischer American Football Verband) / FASV (Fédération Suisse de Football Américain / Federazione Svizzera Football Americano) season with Lugano Seagulls topping the Ost (East) Division on 6-0, ahead of Zurich Bay Bandits (4-2), Bienna Jets (2-4) and Muralto Unicorns (0-6).

Lugano Seagulls (18-12 versus St. Gallen Raiders) and Zurich Renegades (34-0 versus Bienna Jets – in place of Zurich Bay Bandits) as expected won through to the 1986 Final, where Lugano Seagulls triumphed 9-6 over the Zurich Renegades.

About the 1986 SAFV Season

The 1986 SAFV (Schweizerischer American Football Verband) / FASV (Fédération Suisse de Football Américain / Federazione Svizzera Football Americano) (Swiss American Football Federation in English) season was the first year of the Meisterschaft (Championship) in American Football in Switzerland. The SAFV 1986 featured eight teams split evenly into two Divisions: Ost (East) and West, playing a home and away (Home and Home in American parlance) schedule within their division for six games each followed by Play -Offs with the top two in each division, a 3rd / 4th Place match and the Final. After the season Muralto Unicorns folded but were replaced by three new teams: Aarau Outlaws, Berner Grizzlies and Mendrisio Smugglers to bring the total up to 10 teams.
