History[change | change source]

The club played 27 seasons in the highest league between 1928 and 1958. The second place in 1942 was the best result. In 1973 the association was dissolved due to economic problem. [3]In 1983 a first attempt was made to found FC Wien again. The club remained not important and disappeared in 2006 after a merger with FC 1980 Wien Sisyphus to become FC 1980 Wien. In 2007 a lower-class football club of the same name was founded again which stood in the tradition of the historic FC Wien.

The best-known players were goalkeeper Walter Zeman, the later team manager Karl Stotz and later national team captain Erich Obermayer.
