History

In winter 1908 Albert Siems, head of the royal Post-office garage Linz, who had already been a member of a 1899-founded Club for heavy athletics Linzer Athletik Sportklub Siegfried, decided to establish a footballclub. At that time, they were already playing in the black-and-white lengthwise-touched shirts. First the name was Linzer Sportclub, when in an extraordinary general meeting on 14 September 1919 the final change of name in Linzer Athletik Sport-Klub (short form Linzer ASK) took place , its forerunner setting the example. Nevertheless, in public use the name has always just been Lask.

Since 1995 the official name has been LASK Linz, because officials wanted to bring out the city's name additionally to the designation Lask, which had constituted itself as a brand name. LASK Linz is one of the few clubs of the higher divisions of Austria that since it came in existence has never exhibited a sponsor in the official clubname.

The biggest success was the winning of the Austrian Championship 1965, which no club outside of Vienna had won before; additionally, in 1965 Lask won the Cup.

In 1997, due to public pressure, LASK Linz officially merged with the city rival FC Linz (formerly known as SK VOEST Linz), which, however, resulted in the cancellation of the FC Linz, named as merger by politicians. Clubname, colors, chairmen and members remained the same.
