On April 7th, Red Bull takes over the football club SV Austria Salzburg. The club`s general
assembly decides in favour of the traditional violet and white colours. In reality, neither
club crest, shirts (red and blue) nor any official club merchandise can be related to
the great history of SV Austria Salzburg. Finally, unsuccessful talks with the new board
meant that SV Austria Salzburg was founded on the 5th October 2005.
