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 and look to resume this Summer.
Legendary German footballer Christian Ziege signed a multi-year deal after joining as interim coach in Spring 2019. A former player with Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Liverpool and Tottenham, Ziege was a Euro 96 winner, a World Cup runner-up in 2002 and has 72 caps playing with the German national team. Christian's involvement has helped make Pinzgau a destination for young players to develop their game, including Pablo Ruiz, who recently signed a multiyear MLS contract after spending the fall season with FCPS in 2019.
Austria is consistently ranked in the top 12 of the 55 UEFA federations, sending five teams each year to the Champions or Europa leagues. The recent success of Red Bull Salzburg and LASK are a testament to the strength of play, yet the costs to compete are a fraction of what would be expected in many other top flight leagues. FC Pinzgau has untapped potential beyond the men's first side - women's team, men's second side and a well established youth program - and combine this with a bucket list beautiful home facility nestled in the Austrian Alps, and the choice of this club becomes clear.
Wouldn’t it be cool to say “yeah, I own part of a European Soccer Club”?
Wouldn’t it be cooler to participate in a first-of-its-kind sports ownership opportunity and be part of our path to promotion that we’re already on at this early-stage?
Fan experiences are common, but unless you work in a front office or are incredibly wealthy, the opportunity to get behind the scenes of a professional sports club are rare.
Fan Owned Club changes that, giving all Fan Owners the chance to see and participate in the inner workings of a soccer club, by bringing the community membership model common in Europe and brings it to the United States.
We aim to develop Austria’s FC Pinzgau (FCPS) into a truly global Club, giving international players, coaches and executives an entry point and a home in European football (soccer) and in the process making Pinzgau a recognizable name across North America, Europe and beyond.
