History[edit]

The club was formed in 1919, around twenty years after football was popularised in Austria.[2] The club was known as SV Kufstein up until World War II, and from 1946 to 1987 as SC Kufstein. The current name was adopted in 1987 following a merger with local amateur club ESV Kufstein.[3] Since 1987, the club has played in the Austrian Regional League West and the Austrian Football First League.[4]

The current capacity is 4500.[5] The team’s average home attendance for the 2010-11 season was 265.[6] The stadium has hosted international matches, including 2010 friendlies between Belarus and South Korea[7] and Poland and Serbia.[8]
