The 2017–18 Austrian Football First League (German: Erste Liga, also known as Sky Go Erste Liga due to sponsorship) was the 44th season of the Austrian second-level football league and the last one as the First League. It began on 21 July 2017 and ended on 25 May 2018. The fixtures were announced on 21 June 2017.[1]

Teams[edit]

Ten teams participated in the 2017-18 season. TSV Hartberg was promoted after winning the 2016-17 Regionalliga Mitte without having to compete in promotion play-offs as no team from the Regionalliga West or Ost applied for promotion.[2] They replaced SV Horn who finished last in the 2016-17 First League. SV Ried were relegated from the 2016–17 Bundesliga, replacing 2016-17 First League champions LASK Linz.
