Wikipedia - Austrian Cup

The Austrian Cup (German: ÖFB-Cup), known as UNIQA ÖFB Cup for sponsorship purposes, is an annual football competition held by the Austrian Football Association, the ÖFB. During the 2008–09 season, Austria Wien won the tournament for 27th time, a record. SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz are the current holders, winning the 2022-2023 tournament, their 6th overall.


It has been held since 1918–19, with the exception of the time of the Anschluss between 1939 and 1945 and the period between 1950 and 1958 when the competition was deemed of little interest. Because Austria co-hosted Euro 2008, only teams from Austrian Football First League (Austrian Second League) or lower divisions took part in the 2007–08 Austrian Cup.

Until 2010, the tournament was named after its main sponsor (the latest being the Austrian brewery Stiegl). Since then, the tournament has been held under the motto "Goals for Europe" ("Tore für Europa") to emphasize that it is the fastest way for Austrian teams to qualify for the UEFA Europa League (6–7 games, depending on the division of the club).

Having won the cup 27 times, Austria Wien is by far the most successful competitor. The current holder of the trophy is SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz.
