grasshoppers


Zurich has two football (er...soccer) clubs. One of these is Fussballclub Zurich (FCZ), and the second one is Grasshopper Club Zurich (GCZ). I really love the fact that this club decided to call itself the Grasshoppers--such a fun name for a football team! This sign hangs outside a Grasshopper Club office in the Old Town.

For official websites (in German):

FCZ

Grasshoppers

I think it's cute and at the same time appropriate to call a football (soccer) team Grasshopper.

Love the sign, but can't figure out the logic behind the name...
Do the players hop a lot?
