A founding meeting for the club there were in December 1931, after the Vaduz council had decided the construction of a football field. The first recorded deed of foundation is dated February 14, 1932, so this date is used by the Association as Foundation Day. The FC Vaduz first joined the Vorarlberg Football Association, but moved to the schedule of the Swiss Football and Athletics Association a year later, now the Swiss Football Association (SFV ). The first major success was achieved by the FCV 1996, then still in the first league of the SFV ( third highest league), with the victory against the Latvian opponents FC Universitāte Riga (outward and return leg 1-1, Vaduz then won 4-2 on penalties ) in the European Cup Winners' Cup. This one had qualified for the first main round where one is knocked out by eventual finalists Paris St. Germain.

2001 FC Vaduz rose to the National League B, the second- highest Swiss league. In the years that the rise was in the highest Swiss league, the Super League on the program. Both in 2004 as in 2005, the club reached the Barrage, but failed there. For the 2005/ 06 season Mats Gren was committed as a coach. In the first round of the UEFA Cup Qualifiers FC Vaduz defeated the Moldovan opponents FC Dacia Chişinău. In the second round they met on the Istanbul club Beşiktaş Istanbul, against which they are excreted.

In the year 2008 (ie in the 2007/ 08 season) went for FC Vaduz finally the years of dream come true. After seven years of the Challenge League FCV rose as champions of the League Challenge on May 12, 2008 directly into the Axpo Super League on. Thus, in the top Swiss league for the first time a foreign club was represented.

In mid-2008 the question arose whether the FC Vaduz even after the contract expires in 2010, the participation should be as non- Swiss club still allowed. This question also about particular had a certain urgency because the FC Vaduz played at this time, for the first time in the Axpo Super League. In June 2009, the basic decision was supported by the Swiss Football Association like that FC Vaduz continue to have the opportunity to participate in the championship of the Super League and the Challenge League.

In May 2010, the two teams FC Vaduz Liechtenstein and USV Eschen -Mauren decided better cooperation, in particular in the exchange and the development opportunities of the players from both teams. In principle, the agreement is to replace the missing base at FC Vaduz and promote collaboration within the meaning of Liechtenstein football. The FC Vaduz is seen as a first choice for the professional footballer.

The Liechtenstein Cup to win the club 41 times, from 1998 to 2011 fourteen times in a row, making it almost constantly in the UEFA Cup or UEFA Europa League. ( 2-2 after regular time 4-2 ) In 2006, the FC Vaduz in the cup final against FC Balzers victory only after extra reach. In 2007, the FC Vaduz won the Cup final against FC Ruggell 8-0. The Final 2008 also brought no surprise - FC Balzers was defeated 4-0. 2010, the final game against the USV Eschen -Mauren was decided in a penalty shootout. This was 5:3 for the FCV from. In 2011 they won 5-0 against then clear USV Eschen -Mauren. In 2012 there was the big surprise, however, as the USV Eschen -Mauren with a win on penalties stopped the winning streak of FC Vaduz. The FCV separated due to the negative development in the 2011/12 season by his coach Eric Olrie with immediate effect 12 November 2012, as well as its assistant coach Martin Schneider. The training was taken over on an interim basis by the goalkeeper coach Sebastian Selke.
