Wiener AC

Wiener AC

Wiener Athletiksport Club, also known as Wiener AC or WAC, is an Austrian sports club in Vienna. It is particularly noted for its hockey team, which was established in 1900.

Its football team won the Austrian championships, and was runner-up in the Mitropa Cup.


Early years

The football section of the club was founded on October 14 1897. By 1904, it had won the Challenge Cup and the Wiener Tagblatt-Pokal three times each. They were the most important trophies in Austrian football at the time.

In September 1910, most of the fist team left the club to found a new club, Wiener AF. Despite this, Wiener AC finished fourth in the Austrian football championship 1910-11, although the new club finished higher.

Championship 1915

The club won the Austrian football championship 1914-15, in which the ten clubs only played each other once each. Wiener AF finished in second place.

Cup finals

In 1928, the club reached the Austrian Cup final, losing 2-1 to SK Admira Wien.

In the 1930-31 season, Wiener AC won the Austrian Cup, which was played in a league format as the "Wiener Winter Cup". As the winner of this competition, the club was qualified for the Mitropa Cup.

The club reached the final of the Mitropa Cup 1931, but lost both legs of the final to First Vienna FC.

In 1959, the club again won the Austrian Cup, beating SK Rapid Wien 2-0 in the final.

Following relegation from the top level of Austrian football, the club formed a joint team with FK Austria Wien, which was called "FK Austria/WAC Wien" until Austria decided to revert to their own club's traditional name.

In 1983, the club reactivated its football section, and it was taken over in 2002 by its sponsor, which changed its name to "FK Rad Friendly Systems" and then to "FC Fireball United".

The club still has a football section, but it no longer competes in competitions.
