HistoryEdit

The club was established at the end of the 1909–10 season after most of the first-team squad of Wiener AC (known as WAC) left the club to form a new club.[1] The club was named Wiener Assoziationsfootball Club, aiming to inherit the WAC abbreviation. However, the club became generally known as Wiener Assoziations Footballclub (WAF).[1]

On 21 September 1910, the club gained entry to the 1. Klasse division.[1] WAF and Wiener Sport-Club were the best teams during the Autumn part of the season; as a result, a play-off match was held between the two clubs. The first game was a 1–1 draw, with WAF winning the replay 3–1.[1]

In 1911–12 WAF finished fourth in the league. After finishing second in 1912–13, they won the league in 1913–14.[2] In 1921–22 the club won the Austrian Cup for the only time in their history, beating SV Amateure 2–1 in the final.[3]

In 1923–24 the club finished bottom of the 1. Klasse division and were relegated to the second tier.[4]
