Stöger started his career at Favoritner AC Wien, and played six years for FK Austria Wien from 1988 through 1994, winning the league three years in a row. After a year at FC Tirol Innsbruck, he joined SK Rapid Wien in 1995 and won a league title with them. He also played in the 1996 UEFA Cup Winners Cup Final against Paris St Germain in Brussels, which Rapid lost. He then returned to Austria after a year at LASK Linz and finished his career at 38 years of age with SC Untersiebenbrunn.
He made his debut for Austria in February 1988 against Switzerland, missed out on the 1990 FIFA World Cup, but was a participant at the 1998 FIFA World Cup. He earned 65 caps, scoring 15 goals. His last international was a March 1999 friendly match, also against Switzerland.
Stöger, along with Frank Schinkels, became manager of Austria Wien on 6 May 2005 and was scheduled to end his role at the end of the season. However, Stöger continued in the position until December 2005. Stöger eventually moved to First Vienna FC, Grazer AK, and SC Wiener Neustadt. Stöger returned to manage Austria Wien on 30 May 2012, stayed for one year and celebrated the Austrian championship with a record number of points, despite Red Bull Salzburg investing much more money in Schmidt as coach, Mane, Alan, Soriano, Kampl as players.
1. FC Köln
Stöger and his co-trainer Manfred Schmid were bought out of their contracts for 700,000 EUR and a friendly, and thus started at 1. FC Köln on 11 June 2013. A couple of weeks later, Köln signed Jörg Schmadtke as co-CEO. The Billy Goats continuously improved under their tenure, from 33 points in the first half in the 2. Bundesliga, to 35 points in the second half, followed by promotion. The next half in the German top-flight ended with 19 points, followed by 22 points. The first half of 2015/16 ended with 24 points. In January 2016, Stöger, along with his co-trainer Manfred Schmid, let his contract be extended to 2020, including a buy-out clause. During the second half of the season, Köln was not as good, with 19 points, but finished on a single-digit rank for the first time in 24 years. In the season 2016/17, Köln reached 26 and 23 points, and was on the lucky end of the congestion for the places which brought international football back into the city after 25 years. Cologne finished 5th and qualified for the Europa League. In the 2017/18 season, Köln's poor start was the worst ever start to a Bundesliga season, with only three points from the opening 14 matches. In October, Schmadtke resigned. After a win against Arsenal in the Europa League, a loss against Hertha and a draw against Schalke in the league, Schmidt and Stöger were sacked on 3 December 2017. Stöger was still supported by the fans and the team at the time; he came to a fundraising event for disabled kids the night after his dismissal.
On 10 December 2017, Stöger was announced as the successor to Peter Bosz as manager of Borussia Dortmund, when BVB was sitting eighth in the league table. Stöger managed to stabilize the team so they became difficult to beat, but did not play as attracting as it was the trademark BVB football anymore. Stöger included young players as Manuel Akanji, Jadon Sancho in responsible roles, as well as Sergio Gómez. Captain Marcel Schmelzer was briefly sidelined. At the end of the season BVB started to play more beautifully, but did not get consistent form.. He left Dortmund on 12 May 2018.
