In December 2011 Red Bull Salzburg signed a cooperation with FC Pasching (Regionalliga Mitte) and USK Anif (Regionalliga West). The coach of the Juniors, Gerald Baumgartner, left Salzburg and became new coach of FC Pasching. Also players went to Pasching and Anif. After the 2011/12 season the new coach Peter Hyballa left the club and became new head coach of SK Sturm Graz. Lieferings ongoing presence in the Erste Liga continues to create unrest, with average an attendance of sub 500, many people believe the club isn't good for the league. However the club promotes youth and has been a key factor in FC Red Bull Salzburgs 2016/17 UEFA Youth League side, who would ultimately go on to win the tournament.

SeasonsEdit

From the 2012/13 season the club, formerly known as USK Anif, changed its name to FC Liefering. Liefering are sometimes called Red Bull Liefering as they adapted the jerseys and team colors from Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig. In the 2012/13 season they won the Regionalliga West and after two relegation matches they were promoted to the First league.

They are the farm team of FC Red Bull Salzburg. Because they play under the licence of USK Anif, Liefering are eligible for promotion to Bundesliga. In their first year, they finished 3rd, in the 2014/15 season they finished 2nd.

In June 2015 coach Peter Zeidler left the team and became coach of FC Red Bull Salzburg. He was succeeded by Thomas Letsch, who also followed Zeidler to Salzburg for two matches after Zeidler was fired there.

As feeder club the team became very young. In the next two seasons the average age of the team was under twenty years. Players like Samuel Tetteh or Gideon Mensah came to Salzburg from Ghana, other talented players came from the Red Bull Football Academy like Hannes Wolf or Luca Meisl.

In the 2016/17 season FC Red Bull Salzburg (U19) won the UEFA Youth League. Most of the players came from Liefering.
