The BFG was found in 2014 from a competitive sports project of the Fechtgesellschaft Basel, supported by a private foundation and with the help of the "Leistungssportförderung des Kantons Basel Stadt"

In 2018, the project was turned into an independent association the "BFG - Basler Fechtgarde".

Since 2019, the team has been working on the expansion of an independent competitive sports platform for national and international épée fencers engaged in competitive sports.
