FC Wacker Innsbruck is an Austrian association football club from Innsbruck. The club was formed in June 2002 as FC Wacker Tirol, and plays their home games at Tivoli-Neu. The club regard themselves as the spiritual continuation of the team FC Tirol Innsbruck, who went bankrupt in 2002. However, legally Wacker Tirol is a distinct and separate club, and is not entitled to claim the honours won by its predecessors.
The ascent of Wacker Tirol into the Bundesliga took only two years from formation, with promotion to the top division achieved in 2004. This was possible because the club made an alliance with 3rd league club Wattens. After finishing first in Regionalliga West, Wacker advanced to Red Zac Erste Liga. Wacker Tirol finished 6th in their first Bundesliga season.
In 2007 the club was renamed to FC Wacker Innsbruck. At the end of the 2007–08 season, FC Wacker Innsbruck finished last and was relegated to the Austrian Football First League (second tier). In 2010, Wacker won promotion back to the Austrian Bundesliga.
