After the Anschluss and throughout the period of Nazi domination of the country (1938–1945) most of the club’s officials and some players with Jewish heritage, had to flee or were murdered by the Nazi regime. Star player Sindelar died under unresolved circumstances on January 23, 1939 of carbon monoxide poisoning in his apartment. Even though the team did not have any success in this period, they managed a much more important victory in keeping the name "Austria" despite attempts by Nazi sports authorities to rename the club.

The 1960s marked the beginning of a golden period for FK Austria Wien, a run of 16 titles in 33 seasons between 1960 and 1993. The decade began with three titles in a row (1961, 1962 and 1963) and ended with two more (1969, 1970) under the management of Ernst Ocwirk. Stars of the 1960s included:

  • Horst Nemec, a fine centre-forward rated by some at the time as one of Europe's best
  • Ernst Fiala, another fine attacker and inspirational team leader
  • Johann Geyer, a cultured yet hard-working midfield schemer
  • Horst Hirnschrodt, who played mainly on the right flank

Glorious Era

The 1970s saw the beginning of another glorious era of the club as the Violets won 8 national championship titles between 1976 and 1986 (1976,1978-81,1984-86) and made it to the Final of the European Cup Winners Cup in 1978 (which was lost 0:4 to R.S.C. Anderlecht) and the semi finals of the European Champions Cup in 1979. Important players included the world famous Herbert "Schneckerl" Prohaska, Felix Gasselich, Tibor Nyilasi and Toni Polster.

1990s

In the beginning of the 90s, FK Austria enjoyed its so far last successful era: three championship titles (1991-93), three cup titles (1990, 1992, 1994) as well as four Super cup titles (Austrian national champion vs. Cup winner) (1991-94) were won.


Frank Stronach and the new millennium from 1999 - today

After a period without any title (last title 1992/93), Austria Wien was taken over by Frank Stronach in 1999. He invested much money into the club, buying many top players, so they won the title again in 2003. Austia Wien had a three times higher budget than the average clubs of the league. Austria was known for their very fancy and creative style of playing football which on the downside has frequently led to unnecessary losses and makes the team somewhat unpredictable. In the season 2004/05 the team could reach the semi final of the UEFA CUP. On the 21st of November 2005, Frank Stonach decided to resigne from his post. As a result several players like Vladimír Janočko, Joey Didulica, Libor Sionko, Filip Šebo and Sigurd Rushfeldt were transferred or signed contracts for other teams.
