FC Wettingen spent the first few decades of their life bobbing around the lower echelons of the Swiss leagues until finally in 1969 they made it to the National League B. The next season they gained promotion and in the 1969/70 season they played in the Swiss Super League. However, due to their poor return of 15 points from 26 games they were relegated, finishing in 13th place out of 14.

The club spent the next years in the lower leagues of Swiss football until they made a return to top level football for the 1982–83 season where they remained until their relegation in the 1986–87 season. They made a swift return to the top flight gaining promotion in the 1987–88 season.
