Fußballklub Austria Wien , is an Austrian association football club from the capital city of Vienna. It has won the second-most Austrian Bundesliga titles, totalling 24 since the introduction of the Austrian league in 1911–12. Along with its cross-city rival Rapid Wien, it is one of the only sides that have never been relegated from the Austrian top flight. With 27 victories in the Austrian Cup and six in the Austrian Supercup, Austria Wien is also the most successful club in each of those tournaments, and has won the most national titles of any Austrian football club. The club reached the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final in 1978, and the semi-finals of the European Cup the season after. The club plays at the Franz Horr Stadium, known as the Generali Arena since a 2010 naming rights deal with an Italian insurance company.
FK Austria Wien has its roots in Wiener Cricketer, established on 20 October 1910 in Vienna. The club was renamed Wiener Amateur-SV in December of that year and adopted the name Fußballklub Austria Wien on 28 November 1926.
