HistoryEdit

At various times throughout its history the club has had departments for fencing, boxing, wrestling, cycling, handball, track and field, field hockey, tennis, squash, football and water polo. The football team enjoyed success in Austria National Championship in 1922, 1958 and 1959. Their 1958 season included an impressive 7–0 victory over Juventus in European Champions Cup. Two bankruptcies in the 1990s eventually led the team to slip into the lower leagues.

In 2001 the football section split off as Wiener Sportklub due to financial troubles and was re-integrated back into WSC in 2017. The first squad currently plays in the Austrian Regional League East (3rd Division). The club's home ground Wiener Sport-Club Stadium (or Wiener Sport-Club Platz in German) dates back to 1904 and is considered as Austria's oldest actively used football field. Player and coach Erich Hof is known as the club's legend.
