Mission statement

Das Leitbild des FK Austria Wien

Unser Slogan Violett ist mehr... steht als programmatische Ansage für unsere Überzeugungen und Ziele, die wir als „Fünf Punkte der Ehre, die uns zu echten Austrianern machen“ niedergeschrieben haben – und die wir hier veröffentlichen

Unser aller Bekenntnis zu diesen fünf Grundsätzen definiert die Ehre und die Verpflichtung ein Austrianer – und unseren Anspruch, der etwas bessere, feinere und kultiviertere Fußballklub unserer Hauptstadt Wien – zu sein.


Our mission statement

Who we are

Our slogan: “Violet is more than a colour” is representative for our programmatic message and our convictions and goals. These five points of honour, published here, make us true FK Austria Wien family members.

Our commitment to these five principles defines the honour and the duty of being an FK Austria Wien fan, employee, or player. It also asserts our claim to be a football club from our capital Vienna that is a little bit better, more refined and more sophisticated.

Many thanks to the Austria family for their loyalty, and “viola per sempre” for our FK Austria Wien.

Five points of honour make us true Austria Vienna family members:

Longstanding tradition & principles

Our club is the pride and joy of the capital of Austria

And since 1911 it has been the uniting passion for liberal-minded and tolerant supporters & fans from all social backgrounds and political camps

We stand for a playing culture

of beautiful, creative and intelligent football of the highest technical level

We uphold fairness

in sports – in dealing with our players, our club members and associates. Fairness is at the root of all our actions: with regard to our friends as well as to our opponents on the field.

We are a family

for the whole family: fanatics, hooligans and unsportsmanlike behaviour have no place on our stands. No one should be afraid to bring their family/children to a game.

We want to be a role model

Austria Vienna fans are not any football fans but the best of the best. They are aware of their role model function for their young violet talents and the future of Austrian top-level football.

Violet is more than a colour.

Together we are FK Austria Wien.

Violet House Rules & FIFA Code of Conduct

Austria Vienna is focused on peaceful coexistence on the field as well as in the stands. The official house rules are the basis for good cooperation of the Austria family. All rules are characterised by the violet focal points: trust, responsibility and respect. They are continually evaluated and adapted if necessary. Austria Vienna FC backs the FIFA code of conduct which emphasises the main values and principles of behaviour and dealings with people within FIFA and external partners. Compliance with the principles established in the code of conduct is imperative for the protection and the continuous improvement of football and its humanitarian values of connecting peoples, education and culture.


FIFA Code of Conduct

UEFA 10-point plan

Austria Wien also fully supports the partnership between UEFA and FARE and thus UEFA's official 10-point plan.

Arbeitsdefinition Antisemitismus

Austria Wien übernimmt außerdem die Arbeitsdefinition Antisemitismus der International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) und will damit einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Bekämpfung von Antisemitismus leisten. Die Definition soll helfen, Antisemitismus früh zu erkennen und wirksam zu bekämpfen, indem sie sensibilisiert, was als Meinungsäußerung toleriert werden kann und wo die Grenze zum Antisemitismus überschritten wird:

„Antisemitismus ist eine bestimmte Wahrnehmung von Jüdinnen und Juden, die sich als Hass gegenüber Jüdinnen und Juden ausdrücken kann. Der Antisemitismus richtet sich in Wort oder Tat gegen jüdische oder nichtjüdische Einzelpersonen und/oder deren Eigentum sowie gegen jüdische Gemeindeinstitutionen oder religiöse Einrichtungen.“
