With 10 league titles in a row and 9 cup wins since 2012 we have not only delighted so many of our fans in recent years but have also been Austria's most successful football club of the 21st century. FC Red Bull Salzburg has also made a proud name for itself across Europe with numerous sensational campaigns in the recent past, truly putting Salzburg on the European footballing map.

UEFA Europa League – Semi Final




  • 2022/2023 | After a tense final few weeks and months of the campaign, a home win against SK Sturm Graz ensured we became Austrian Bundesliga champions for a tenth time in a row! That has never before been achieved in Austria. Our side showed they could mix it with the top teams in Europe once again too. We put in a series of impressive performances in the UEFA Champions League group stage against AC Milan, FC Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb - ensuring we stayed in Europe until the spring for the sixth year in a row with a third-placed group finish. We were narrowly beaten 1-2 in the UEFA Europa League tie against eventual finalists AS Roma, but we put in a performance we can be proud of!
  • 2021/2022 | Back to Emotion was the motto of the season - and how true it proved to be. Aside from a few exceptions, there were so many opportunities to hold huge days and nights of football. Having a packed Red Bull Arena behind us showed in our results as we ended the season unbeaten at home. It was a truly incredible season: we won the Austrian Bundesliga title for the ninth year in a row, won the UNIQA ÖFB Cup and made the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League! Our Young Bulls were also in impressive form in 2021/22, making it all the way to the final of the UEFA Youth League, where they were beaten in the end by Benfica. We have shown the whole of Europe though that the Football of Tomorrow is made in Salzburg!

  • 2020/2021 | It was a season of empty stands, with only a few of our home matches seeing limited numbers of spectators. That could not stop us gaining further success.  We won the Tipico Bundesliga and UNIQA ÖFB Cup double again. Jesse Marsch and several key players left at the end of the campaign, but there was a new wave waiting to take their place - just as we plan for.


Living our dreams – but remaining hungry for more

  • 2019/2020 | It was a season the kind of which we had never seen before - and probably never will again. An eleven-month campaign when for a long time we didn't know if it would be completed or not. After a nervous three-month wait in the spring due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Austrian season resumed in epic fashion, with the final 10 matches crammed into just four weeks. We made the most of the situation and reclaimed both the Tipico Bundesliga and the UNIQA ÖFB Cup, while equalling our goalscoring record with 110 league goals. Our first season in the Champions League also provided plenty of moments to remember, with a 6-2 win against Genk and a 3-4 defeat against Liverpool creating a stir across the continent.

  • 2018/2019 | Another incredible season that earned a place of honour in our history books. For the sixth time, Salzburg won the Austrian Double and cemented their position as serial champions. We also had a dramatic campaign in the UEFA Europa League. After taking six wins in the group stage, Marco Rose's side were knocked out at the last 16 stage despite taking a 3-1 win at home against SSC Napoli. The season ended on a high as our spot in the UEFA Champions League group stage in the following season was confirmed for the first time after being knocked out in qualifying 11 times.

  • 2017/2018 | Once again, FC Red Bull Salzburg entered the history books with a spectacular season that included a record total of 62 competitive matches! For the fifth time in a row, the Red Bulls lifted the league title - thanks to a new points record of 83 points. They also made a major breakthrough in European football. After a sensational Europa League group stage win ahead of Olympique de Marseille, Konyaspor and Vitòria Guimaraes, Salzburg went on to face Real Sociedad, Borussia Dortmund and Lazio in the knockout rounds – and sent them all out with great performances. Marco Rose's team deservedly made it all the way to the semi-final, in which the Bulls suffered the narrowest of defeats against Olympique de Marseille.

Young guns make mark

  • 2016/2017 | The Red Bulls make history again! Salzburg not only managed to win the league and cup again this season, but set a new club record points total of 81 points! In Europe, after the disappointment of a narrow defeat in the Champions League play-off, Salzburg were able to create a couple of shocks in the Europa League group stage. The whole of Austria also celebrated along with our U19s, as they became the first ever Austrian team to lift the UEFA Youth League trophy!
  • 2015/2016 | TRIPLE DOUBLE, HERE WE GO! After a difficult start to the season, Salzburg took their fourth league title in five years and crowned this success with their third double in a row. The club thereby made history again! In Europe, we didn't manage to make a group stage this season, unfortunately, after getting knocked out of the UEFA Europa League qualification play-off by FC Dinamo Minsk.
  • 2014/2015 | Austrian DOUBLE WINNERS for the third time! The club managed to create history once again by completing a back-to-back DOUBLE win. The 2015 league title was won with a six-point advantage over SK Rapid Vienna. In Europe, FC Red Bull Salzburg were group winners in the UEFA Europa League, but their campaign ended in the last 32 against major Spanish side Villarreal CF. In September 2014, the Red Bull Football & Ice Hockey Academy officially opened in the Salzburg district of Liefering after 21 months of construction. The 10 hectare-complex provides ideal conditions for developing hundreds of young talents.

European sensation

  • 2013/2014 | The Red Bulls completed the double for the second time in club history. We also had a sensational European tour under the name of FC Salzburg, reaching the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League - a new record for our club!

  • 2012/2013 | Only runners-up despite new club record of 77 points won and 91 goals scored. Sporting director Ralf Rangnick and coach Roger Schmidt’s team played a refreshing brand of attacking football that increasingly delighted the fans. 
  • 2011/2012 | Austrian champions and cup winners! Winning the double made for a historic season. 

    Jakob Jantscher and Stefan Maierhofer were joint top goalscorers in the league with 14 goals each. Jantscher also received the award for most valuable player of the season.
    In Europe, FC Red Bull Salzburg reached the group stage of the UEFA Europa League (facing Slovan Bratislava, Athletic Bilbao and Paris St. Germain), ultimately qualifying for the knockout stages with a 2-0 home win against PSG and 3-2 success at Slovan Bratislava. Salzburg were knocked out in the last 32 by Metalist Kharkiv.
  • 2010/2011 | A turbulent season finished with the club second behind Sturm Graz. Ricardo Moniz and Niko Kovac took over the coaching duties in April. In Europe, Salzburg made the group stage of the UEFA Europa League, but were unable to qualify for the knockout stages after facing Manchester City, Juventus and Lech Poznan. The Red Bull Arena was fitted with a natural pitch for the first time since EURO 2008.
  • 2009/10 | Austrian champions with 22 wins. From the 12th game week of the season to the 33rd, the Red Bulls went on a superb run of 22 Bundesliga matches without defeat.
    In Europe, FC Red Bull Salzburg qualified for the UEFA Europa League group stage, winning all six group stage matches (against Villarreal CF, Lazio and Levski Sofia). In the first knockout stage (last 32), Salzburg exited at the hands of Standard Liege.
    Eddie Gustafsson was voted best goalkeeper and Somen Tchoyi best outfield player of the 2009/10 tipp3 Bundesliga.

All-time records

  • 2008/2009 | Austrian champions with 23 wins. The second and third sets of nine fixtures against the rest of the division were pillars for the title success, as was the club’s home strength. Marc Janko’s 39 goals made him the league’s top goalscorer and set a new club record (overtaking Oliver Bierhoff’s mark of 23 goals from 1991).
  • 2007/2008 | The season finished for the reigning champions in a disappointing second place. Only in the Red Bull Arena did the Red Bulls truly dominate their opponents – with a few exceptions.
    In Europe, the champions also missed out on their goal of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. They were within four minutes of succeeding against Donetsk but went on to also miss out on the UEFA Cup group stage in a play-off against AEK Athens.
  • 2006/2007 | Austrian champions with a 19-point advantage – under Maestro Giovanni Trapattoni. The 75 points marked Salzburg’s best total in Austrian Bundesliga history. Salzburg had never before won so many matches and scored so many goals in a season, while new record lows were also set for goals conceded and losses.  
  • 2005/2006 | The goal of the season of qualifying for Europe was achieved as Kurt Jara guided the club to finish runners-up. Famous signings Alexander Zickler and Thomas Linke thrilled the fans.
