Rivalry culture[edit]

Map showing the current stadium locations of FK Austria and SK Rapid

Both clubs come from the Hietzing area, the 13th district, located in Western Vienna. Today however Austria now play at Franz Horr Stadium in the Southern Vienna area of Favoriten (district 10) while Rapid are still located in the West of the city but in nearby Penzing (district 14) at the Gerhard Hanappi Stadium.

Support today is mainly split along geographical divides of north and west (Rapid) and south (Austria) however both clubs have fans throughout the city and across the country. Class has been cited as a traditional means of support with Rapid being supported by the working classes while Austria were the team of the bourgeois of Vienna.[citation needed] Rapid were founded as First Workers Club of Wien compared with Austria who were founded as Wien Amateur Sports Society and incorporated a minimum intelligence requirement into their founding statutes. The class divisions may be coming back into play however as Rapid are currently only one of two Austrian sides run by its supporters.[citation needed] Austria were owned by Frank Stronach until 2008 and changed their name back from Austria Memphis Magna to Austria Wien.

Early Austrian football was dominated by clubs from Vienna and the Wien derby as it is known today was contested by many different clubs, most notably Rapid, First Vienna FC, who are located in the northern district 19 and SK Admira Vienna from district 21 also in the north of the city. The three clubs dominated Austrian football winning every title from 1927-1946 but Admira later merged with other clubs and eventually moved to Mödling, a town south of Vienna. The original Viennese club, First Vienna went into decline after the 1950s and now play outside the top flight. FK Austria became Rapid's main rival in the early 1960s as the two began to dominate Austrian football.

A heavy police presence is involved at matches to keep crowd trouble to a minimum.[citation needed] In 2007, four policemen were injured during fighting between supporters.[citation needed] In 2011 a game was abandoned after Rapid fans invaded the pitch.[citation needed]
