Locally known as “Pinzgau,” the Club was born in 2007. Rising from the lower divisions, FC Pinzgau Saalfelden currently competes as one of 62 teams in Austria’s third division. A player loan deal with MLS Club, Real Salt Lake in Summer 2019 helped deliver the strongest start in Club history. Prior to the Covid-19 suspension of our season, FCPS was the favorite amongst the six teams from "Regionalliga Salzburg" competing for promotion this Spring.
In June of 2019, Fan Owned Club began jointly managing FCPS before finalizing the purchase of the LLC (GmbH) that operates FC Pinzgau Saalfelden and makes all Club-related decisions in December 2019. Similar to club ownership in Germany, the Austrian Federation requires a non-profit entity (Verein) to hold the actual license to compete. The Verein is controlled by six members, all of whom hold significant ownership within Fan Owned Club.
