On 22 June 2024, a friendly match between the Upper Austrian Women's Football Academy and Red Bull Salzburg U16 will take place in the LSP Arena Gmunden. The host is the municipality of Gmunden and SV Gmundner Milch.

Gerald Reindl, co-founder of the Upper Austrian women’s football academy, Head of Sport and coach at Kleinmünchen, on the Upper Austrian women’s football academy: “The women’s football academy was founded in 2015 as a section of the most successful football club in Upper Austria, Union Kleinmünchen. In 2022, a separate club was founded for the academy, which consists of the 2 members FC Blau Weiß Linz and Union Kleinmünchen. In the 2022/2023 season, the Upper Austrian Women’s Football Academy took over the Future League team from SPG FC Blau Weiß Linz / Union Kleinmünchen and now plays in the ÖFB Future League. The academy’s task is to train Bundesliga players for SPG SPG FC Blau Weiß Linz / Union Kleinmünchen. It also regularly manages to recruit junior team players and complete an international transfer almost every year. The facility will celebrate its 10th anniversary in the 2024/2025 season.

Bernd Winkler, Head of Women’s Football, former Bundesliga player at SCR Altach and other clubs, on Red Bull Salzburg U16: “FC Red Bull Salzburg entered women’s football in the 2023/2024 season. As a first step, the U16 girls will take part in the championship of the Salzburg U14 Sparkassenliga against boys. Our common goal is to create the appropriate structures to attract as many young female players from the region as possible to us, to offer them training at a high level and thus allow women’s football to grow sustainably. The squad for this young team is made up exclusively of players from the region. In general, it is important to us that we offer the girls a good training environment. They should all have very good opportunities for sporting development. In doing so, we rely on the same philosophy that we have already had very good experiences with for the boys at the Red Bull Football Academy.
