The Wiener Sport-Club, commonly referred to simply as WSC, was established in 1883 playing in club colours of black and white. It is one of the Austrian capital Vienna's oldest athletics clubs, their traditional home is in the Dornbach quarter of the city.

At various times throughout its history the club has had departments for fencing, boxing, wrestling, cycling, handball, track and field, field hockey, tennis, football and water polo. Of these only the football and fencing departments remain active alongside the recently formed (2005) water polo section.

The football team enjoyed success as Austrian national champions in 1922, 1958 and 1959. Their 1958 season included an impressive 7:0 victory over Juventus in European Champions Cup. Two bankruptcies in the 1990s eventually led the team to slip into the lower leagues.

In the early 2000s the football division split off as Wiener Sportklub the team of which currently plays in the Austrian Regional League East (3rd division). Player, and later, coach and manager Erich Hof is the club's legend according to the supporters.
