The Favoritner Athletic Club, or FavAC for short, is an Austrian football club from the Viennese Favoriten district and currently plays under the sponsored name Cashpoint FavAC in the fourth tier, the Viennese City League . The club's popularity drastically rose during their two-year spell in the top division between 1983 and 1985. Their colours are red and black.

It should not be confused with the FavAC Favoritner Sports Club, a club that was active in the highest Austrian league several years before, nor with Favoritner SK Blau-Weiß which also played in the top division.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1910 as the football section of the bowling club Kegelklub Favorit as Favorit Athletic Club. On 21 December 1910 the club was admitted to a meeting of the Austrian Football Association and assigned to the Vienna Second Division. Before that, the club was already entered into the register of associations on 1 August 1910, under the name Favoritner Athletics Sports Club, or Favoritner ASC for short. After a few years in 2nd Division and a temporary spell in the league of the labour movement, the VAFÖ (Vereinigung der Amateur-Fußballvereine Österreichs), Favoritner AC played in the years 1936 to 1938 for the first time in the highest Austrian league.

After the relegation in 1938, the top flight could only be achieved between 1983 and 1985. However these two seasons brought the FavAC a great popularity in Vienna.

Since 2010/11 the club plays in Wiener Stadtliga, the fourth-highest tier.
