WSG Wattens is an Austrian football club from Wattens, a town in the state of Tyrol. The team plays in the Austrian Regional League West, the third division of Austrian football.

History[change | edit source]

The club was founded in 1930 and played under different names.

  • SC Wattens (1930-53)
  • SV Wattens (1953-71)
  • WSG Wattens (1984-present)

Between 1971 and 1984 the club was united with FC Wacker Innsbruck to form SSW Innsbruck. This team was very successful. They reached the championship five times. From 1984 onwards they played in the Austrian Regional League West and the second tier First League. 2002 they merged with FC Wacker Tirol, so this new founded club was able to play in the Regionalliga. After the promotion the merger was dissolved. In the 2010/11 season they reached the second place and played two relegation matches versus Blau-Weiß Linz, the champion of the Regionalliga Mitte. They lost in the penalty shooting and Linz was promoted to the First League.
