🕖 November 12, 2022 (14:00 CET) 🇦🇹 (8:00am EDT) 🇺🇸

⏫ Opposition ⏫
SV Seekirchen, who are based in the town of Seekirchen am Wallersee, were founded in 1945 shortly after the Second World War came to an end.
However, they spent the first half a century of their existence languishing in the lower leagues of Austrian football and it was not until 1997 that SVS climbed to the third tier for the first time in their history.
They spent the next few seasons yo-yoing between divisions, but have now been in the third tier without interruption since regaining promotion ahead of the 2002/03 campaign.
Several youngsters who came through the club’s ranks in the late 1980s and early 1990s went on to become household names in Austrian football, with Robert Ibertsberger, Andreas Ibertsberger and Thomas Winklhofer all representing their country on multiple occasions.
More recently, Stefan Lainer who plays as right-back for Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach and the Austria national team came through the Seekirchen academy.

⏫ Statement ⏫
“We expect a good performance against Seekirchen and want to play to our home strength once again. I am convinced that the result will then be positive. The team is in a flow, you can see that in every training session. They are eager for the last game and want to go into the winter break with three points. When things are going well, they are happy to accept the extra round. However, Seekirchen is always an unpleasant opponent, who recently had to deal with some absences of key players – that hurts every team. We are set for an intense and close game.”
⏫ Head-To-Head ⏫
Having won four of the last seven meetings between the teams – including the last to win at 1508 SaalfeldenArena (and ending the previous 539-day unbeaten home run), SV Seekirchen have firmly established themselves as another bogey team for the boys from Pinzgau.
