History

Carinthians Soccer Women was founded as a new independent football club in June 2013. Before this there had been a local women's team who played under the aegis of SK Austria Kärnten, then FC St. Veit. The squad was augmented with players from nearby Slovenia, who received travel expenses; unlike the rest of the team who remained amateur.

In 2015 the club finished second in 2. Liga Ost/Süd but qualified for a promotion play-off as the first-placed team, SV Neulengbach's reserves, were not eligible to play in the top division alongside the Neulengbach first team. Carinthians then beat 2. Liga Mitte/West winners SG FC Bergheim/USK Hof to secure their place in the 2015–16 ÖFB-Frauenliga.

Current squad

As of 6 September 2015.
