Step by step back into professional football

Wacker Innsbruck, ten times Austrian champions, has mutated into a chaos club in recent years. After bankruptcy in the summer of 2022, the cult club even had to be relegated from the 2nd division to the Tyrolean league. After finishing 7th last season, they finally achieved confident promotion. The Regionalliga Tirol (4th performance level) should only be a stopover, the next goal is promotion to the Regionalliga West. Wacker wants to return to professional football step by step.
