HistoryEdit

The emergence of the club marked the end of all efforts to establish an all-Carinthian team to play in the Austrian Football Bundesliga, pushed by the state's government under Jörg Haider. Austria Klagenfurt was already founded in 2007 ahead of the formation of the SK Austria Kärnten football club, but began playing not before SK Austria was dissolved in 2010[1] and it had merged with SC St. Stefan.[2] SK Austria Klagenfurt plays its home matches at the Hypo Group Arena.[3] The club adopts the tradition of the former SK Austria Klagenfurt founded in 1920, renamed FC Kärnten in 1999, which was dissolved in 2009.
