Joachim Standfest (born 30 May 1980) is an Austrian footballer who currently plays as a midfielder / defender for Wolfsberger AC in the Austrian First League.

Club career[edit]

Born in Leoben, Styria, Standfest made his professional debut for Grazer AK in the 1998/1999 season. He stayed 9 seasons with GAK, winning a league title and three domestic cups. He left GAK for giants Austria Wien in January 2007, just before GAK were demoted to the Regionalliga Mitte because of financial difficulties.

In 2001 Standfest underwent bowel surgery and a tumor was taken away.

In 2010, Standfest transferred from vice-champions Austria Wien to cup-winners Sturm Graz, citing family reasons for the move. In 2012, he left Sturm Graz to join Kapfenberger SV.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in October 2003 against the Czech Republic and was a participant at EURO 2008. Until 21 August, he earned 32 caps, scoring 2 goals.
