The ÖFB - Austria's No. 1
The ÖFB is by far the largest sports association in Austria.
Football - the beautiful game and clearly the number one in Austria. In terms of members and clubs
the ÖFB is definitely the largest sports association in Austria. According to the statistics of the
Austrian Federal Sports Organisation (BSO) football is the most popular sport in Austria, followed by
tennis, skiing, curling and golf. Taken together, the aforementioned sports have as many members as
the ÖFB can proudly present alone...
Week after week, football fills about one million people in Austria with enthusiasm. All in all, 363,939
male and 6,899 female players as well as 221,547 youth and child players are registered in a total of
2,111 football clubs in Austria. This means that around 7.4 percent of the Austrian population are
members of a football club. Compared to the other 53 UEFA Associations, Austria is ranked on
excellent sixth place!

History of the ÖFB
In Austria, first attempts to handle a leather ball, which was not round at the time, have already been
registered in 1870. However, it were English gardeners employed by the banker's family Rothschild in
Vienna who provided the decisive impetus for Austrian football around 1890, when they chased the
leather ball, already round by then, in their spare time and quickly succeeded in getting the Viennese
population enthusiastic about this sport.
Already in 1894, the first Austrian football clubs were founded in Vienna, the "First Vienna Football
Club", in Vienna soon commonly known as "the Vienna", and the "Cricketer". In 1904, the Austrian
Football Association (ÖFB) was formed; a year later Austria joined the international football association
FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) and hosted the 5th FIFA congress in Vienna in
1908.
Following the introduction of the eight-hour workday for Austria's working population in 1919, football
became the most popular sport and favourite pastime. Austria quickly rose to become one of
Europe's leading football nations. From 1924 to 1938 Austria played professional football in the two
highest divisions, following the English example. Home championship had already started in 1911.
The most successful years in the history of Austrian football were from 1930 to 1933, 1950 to 1954
and later in 1960, 1978, 1982, 1990 and 1998, when Austria qualified for the World Cup. In 1936,
Austria's amateur selection won the silver medal at the Olympic Football Tournament held in Berlin
and became European Champion in Spain in 1967.
The World-Renowned Dream Team (Wunderteam)
The father of the "Dream Team" was Hugo Meisl, son of a wealthy Jewish family in Vienna. For
football, he sacrificed a possible career as banker accompanied with lots of money. Instead, Meisl
became a driving force in the popularization of football on the continent.
In 1912, Meisl brought Jimmy Hogan to Vienna, together with his compatriot W. J. Townley,
employed amongst others by FC Bayern München, who was one of the first English coaches on the
continent. Hogan, the most famous British coach in mainland Europe before World War I, should lead
the Austrian team to the Olympic Games in Stockholm.
Then, the development aid worker coached MTK Budapest and other European clubs before assisting
Meisl in the preparation of the "Dream Team". Hogan's greatest success was the participation of an
Austrian amateur team in the finals of the Olympic Games in 1936, where Austria lost against Italy 12. Until today, this was the only final ever to be reached by Austria in an important international
tournament.
Meisl became general secretary and coach of the Austrian Football Association (ÖFB) in 1927.
Together with his Italian colleague Vittorio Pozzo, Meisl became the genius of European football in the
1930s. The "Dream Team" of Meisl remained unbeaten 14 games in a row from 12 April until 23

______________________________________________________________________
October 1932 (11 victories, 3 draws). The highlight of this series was the sensational 5-0 victory over
Scotland in Vienna on 16 May 1931, the first defeat of the Scottish team on the European continent.
Germany was outclassed two times, 6-0 in Berlin and 5-0 in Vienna. Switzerland was equally
dispatched 2-0 in Vienna and 8-1 in Basle. Italy and Hungary were both defeated in Vienna 2-1 and 8-2
respectively. A 3-4 loss to England, the home country of football, at the London Stamford Bridge on 7
December 1933 put an end to Austria's unbeaten series. The press reported about a grand football
celebration, where strong collective fighters (England) were faced by sophisticated individual players
(Austria) and both teams could feel victorious.
Only four days later, the "Dream Team" beat Belgium 6-1 in Brussels. Until the semi-finals of the
World Cup in 1934, Meisl's team only suffered one more defeat (1-2 to Czechoslovakia). The 0-1 loss
to Italy, the host of the World Cup, heralded the end of the "Dream Team" that left the pitch 21-times
as winners, suffered only 3 losses and scored 101 goals in a total of 31 international matches from 12
April 1931 to 3 June 1934. In a way, Austria was the Brazil of those years. With regard to brilliance
and playing technique, Austria was the clear number one in football.
Austrian football was equivalent to Viennese football and to the Viennese "Scheiberlspiel" (short
passing and dribbling game) which added individuality, cunning and playing technique to the Scottish
short-passing game and sometimes was almost a pure entertainment act. The so-called "Danube
football", also played in Prague and Budapest which were connected to Vienna by their common
history during the Habsburg monarchy, was somehow the counterpart to the Prussian-German game,
influenced by England, which preferred a long-passing game and concentrated on athletics, strength,
collectivity and strategic planning.
The leading player of the "Dream Team" was Matthias Sindelar, nicknamed "Der Papierene" (Man of
Paper) because of his slender build. No one represented the specific characteristics of Austrian
football during these years better than him.
The 1954 World Cup, a Highlight of the Early 1950s
The national team of the early 1950s, including world stars such as Ernst Ocwirk (twice captain of the
FIFA world team), Ernst Happel, Gerhard Hanappi und Walter Zeman, successfully managed to pick
up the tradition of the "Dream Team". In 1953, Austria sent six players and the head coach, Walter
Nausch from the "Dream Team" era, to the FIFA selection.
The 1954 World Cup ranks among the most glamorous tournaments in the history of the ÖFB.
Twenty years after gaining fourth place in Italy, Austria returned into the circle of top teams.
Austria clearly qualified for the quarter-finals without conceding a goal. The quarter-finals were marked
by the legendary battle against host country Switzerland. Austria was already behind 0-3, and
goalkeeper Schmied had a heat stroke in the first half. Therefore, Austria's team masseur Ulrich
remained next to the goal during the whole game and instructed the goalie. In the end, Austria won
this World Cup game with the highest score ratio 7-5 and qualified for the semi-finals. The semi-finals
ended in a 1-6 debacle against the German team – i.e. Austria played again for third place.

Ocwirk and his team got back on track with a 3-1 victory over Uruguay and won bronze – so far, the
best placing for the national team in a World Cup!
All-Time Spectator Record and Birth of a Second Dream Team (Wunderteam)
Austria's national team at the World Cup in Sweden in 1958 was not comparable to the one in 1954
and was also in the most difficult group.
After defeats to Brazil (0-3) and the USSR (0-2) as well as a respectable tie against England (2-2),
Austria was ranked last, which meant an early out for the team. 20 years of World Cup abstinence
followed.
However, in May 1960 football experienced a new highlight in Austria. The national team under coach
Karl Decker beat Scotland 4-1. Football spectators called this event the birth of a second "Dream
Team".
The 30th of October went down in the history of Austrian football. 90,726 visitors at the international
against Spain (3-0) in the sold-out Viennese stadium set the all-time spectator record.
The 1978 World Cup in Argentina and a 3-2 Triumph in Cordoba
After 20 years, Austria qualified again for the World Cup finals in 1978. Winning the qualification group
unleashed nationwide euphoria in Austria.
The legendary "kick of Izmir" by Herbert Prohaska, later head coach of the Austrian team, led to
Austria's fourth World Cup participation. In the first round, Austria faced the teams of Spain, Sweden
and Brazil.
Inspired by the enthusiasm of their home country, Krankl and his team showed an outstanding
performance in Argentina. Austria gained the lead in the first match against Spain after a goal by the
young player Walter Schachner. Hans Krankl later extended the lead to a 2-1 final score. The game
against Sweden also ended in an Austrian victory (1-0). Only against Brazil, Austria remained
scoreless.
However, the 0-1 defeat was irrelevant - the qualification was already certain before the game. The
goal difference even secured an Austrian group victory.
In the knockout stage, Austria played the first match against the Dutch team of Ernst Happel. Austrian
confidence in victory was strengthened by the absence of three Dutch players. Austrians entered the
game self-assured - and rushed right into a debacle. The team of Helmut Senekowitsch lost 1-5 –
Holland cold-bloodedly defeated Austria.
In the second game of the knockout stage, Austria played bravely - but lost through bad luck (and the
shinbone of defender Heini Strasser) to Italy 0-1.

______________________________________________________________________
Then, on 21 June 1978 - the match against Germany took place. For Austria the World Cup was
basically over - for the opponent the game was important. A victory would qualify them for the final, a
draw for the game for third place.
The match started as usual: Austria played good; Germany shot the first goal (Rummenige). After the
break Austria scored a draw - Vogts deflected a cross from Krieger into his own net.
Followed by the appearance of Hans Krankl: First, Krankl scored a goal to give Austria a 2-1 lead in the
66th minute. But 2 minutes later Hölzenbein equalized.
Then, the successful finish: in the 88th minute, Krankl went past his defender Rüßmann and the
German sweeper, and gave Maier, the German goalkeeper, no chance.
It was the first time in 47 years that the ÖFB team managed to defeat its neighbour.
The Sad Non-Aggression Pact of Gijon
Four years after Cordoba both Ausria and Germany lost their honour during their football encounter in
Gijon. Austria defeated Chile (1-0) and Algeria (2-0); Germany had to win the match against Austria to
qualify for the finals.
The German team would not miss this chance for revenge - many thought so and were badly
mistaken. After a 1-0 German lead in the 10th minute (a narrow defeat would also qualify the Austrian
team), nothing happened, the contest was over.
By a silent deal, the game went down in history as the "Scandal of Gijon". Algerians who earned a
sensational 2-1 victory over West Germany were angry, the world of football was outraged. By
waving money the visitors showed that they believed a bribe had been paid for the "non-aggression
pact".
The World Cup procedure had been changed. For the first time 24 teams were allowed to participate
in Spain, the six groups of four were reduced in the second round to four groups of three, and the
winners of the four groups qualified for the semi-finals. Austria lost to France 0-1 and drew 2-2 with
the Netherlands.

Austria Failed to Survive the First Round of the 1990 and 1998 World Cups
In 1988 and 1989, the Austrian national team under head coach Josef Hickersberger managed to
qualify for the World Cup in Italy. Especially the last qualification game against West Germany in
November 1989 will go down in history.
Toni Polster pulled off a brilliant performance and scored 3 goals that qualified Austria for the World
Cup. However, the World Cup itself was not satisfactory. Austria was knocked out after the first
round. Two 0-1 defeats to Italy and the Czech Republic and a 2-1 victory over the USA were not
enough to qualify for the round of sixteen.
Qualifying for the World Cup in France in 1998, unleashed new football euphoria in Austria. From ten
games, eight were won. Especially the games against group favourite Sweden went down in the
history of Austrian football. His goals against Sweden made Andreas Herzog the star of the
qualification.
With his dream goal at the game in Vienna, he aroused the crowd in the sold-out Ernst Happel
Stadium. However, the World Cup did not turn out as expected. After two draws with Cameroon (1-1)
and Chile (1-1), Austria lost the deciding game in the first round against Italy 1-2.

The Austrian National Team
670 international matches
276 victories
146 draws
248 defeats
1223:1088 goal ratio
As at 29 April 2008 (after the game against the Netherlands)
The ÖFB and its Greatest Successes
13 games, 11 victories, 2 draws and a goal ratio of 59:15, these are the results of Hugo Meisl and his
Dream Team. All over Europe, people spoke about Sindelar, Hiden, Schall and Vogl in 1931 and 1932.
Results such as 6-0 over Germany in Berlin, 5-0 over Germany in Vienna, 5-0 over Scotland, 8-1 over
Switzerland, 8-2 over Hungary and 2-1 over Italy, etc. made German journalists praise the Austrian
national team as "Dream Team". In the 1950s, Walter Nausch - former Dream Team captain - was
appointed head coach of the FIFA World Selection Team. Austria - at that time together with Hungary
the number one in Europe - sent no less than 6 players to the World Selection.
The 1954 World Cup, where the Austrian national team won bronze with players such as Ernst
Happel, Walter Zeman and Gerhard Hanappi, was no miracle but the result of hard work. Besides the
bronze medal and rank 4 in 1934, Austria was also delighted to be ranked 7th at the 1978 World Cup.

Venues
Austria
Vienna
The Austrian capital was once the centre of the Habsburg Empire. More than 130 years ago, Emperor
Franz Joseph had the city walls torn down and the Ringstraße Boulevard built in its place. Vienna was
the home of many great composers such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler or
Schönberg. Home of the traditional football clubs SK Rapid Wien and FK Austria Magna, the 1.5
million metropolis is located at the bottom of the Vienna Woods, the north-eastern foothills of the
Alps.
Innsbruck
Twice the venue of the Winter Olympics (1964 and 1976), this former residence of Emperor
Maximilian I. has now around 130,000 inhabitants, including about 20,000 students. Innsbruck, the
capital of Tyrol, is situated exactly 575 meters above sea level, surrounded by the mountain range
“Nordkette” (2334 m). The city’s landmark is the Golden Roof, a splendid oriel capped with 2,657
fire-gilt copper tiles.
Salzburg
The city is not only known as a World Heritage with a historic city centre but also as a lively
international centre of culture hosting the Easter and summer festivals. The most famous person of
Salzburg is probably Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who was born there on 27 January 1756. During the
past years, the city that is home to 150,000 inhabitants became known as host of major international
sport events.
Klagenfurt
Klagenfurt, the southernmost of Austrian provincial capitals (92,000 inhabitants), is directly situated at
Europe's warmest Alpine lake, the Wörthersee and is home to the football club SK Austria Kärnten.
Regularly organised sports events: the Grand Slam Tournament of the Beach Volleyball World Series,
which attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year, the triathlon “Ironman Austria" with over 2,000
participants and the Big Air Snowboard FIS World Cup.

______________________________________________________________________
Switzerland
Zurich
With 367,000 inhabitants Zurich is the largest city of Switzerland. It is located on the northern shore of
Lake Zurich and crossed by the rivers Limmat and Sihl. The home to the traditional football clubs FC
Zürich und Grasshopper-Club, is internationally known as banking and finance centre and for Europe’s
most famous shopping street “Bahnhofstraße“. In addition, a wide range of cultural offerings, a lively
party scene and a great number of events turn Zurich into a bustling and fascinated city.
Basle
The region of Basle is located in the centre of a triangle where the borders of Germany, France and
Switzerland meet. Although small – according to the official census it has 166,000 inhabitants – the
city of Basle is an exquisite European metropolis. The geographical position at the heart of Europe has
helped to turn Basle into an open, innovative economic, culture and research centre over the
centuries. The bordering area called “Baselbiet" offers a scenic contrast to the city. Numerous historic
sites, such as the remains of the Roman town of “Augusta Raurica”, attract many visitors.
Bern
Founded in 1191, Bern has been the federal capital of Switzerland and seat of its parliament since
1848. In 1954, it hosted the World Cup Final at the Wankdorf stadium, where the legendary “Miracle
of Bern” was celebrated. Bern has 127,000 inhabitants and is located at the river “Aare”, embedded
between the Jura and the world-famous mountain region “Jungfrauregion“. The old town of the
federal capital has been a UNESCO World Heritage since 1983.
Geneva
Geneva is the European headquarters of the United Nations. The canton of Geneva has 450,000
inhabitants and is located at the heart of a dynamic region on the shores of the biggest lake of
Western Europe. Today, Geneva is not only a major financial centre and well-known congress and
exhibition venue but also a city of watches, industry, science and cuisine with famous vineyards
nearby. Home of FC Servette, Geneva stands for high quality of life and is called "the smallest
metropolis" due to its relatively small size.
