Linzer Athletik-Sport-Klub, commonly known as Linzer ASK or simply LASK, is an Austrian association football club, from the Upper-Austrian state capital Linz.
It is the oldest football club in that region and plays in the Austrian Football Bundesliga, the top tier of Austrian football. The club's colors are black and white. The women's team plays in the second-highest division of Austrian women's football.
LASK was founded on 7 August 1908. In 1965, the club became the first team outside Vienna to win the Austrian football championship. This is also its only championship to date. The club currently plays its league fixtures at the Waldstadion in Pasching but at the 14,000 capacity Linzer Stadion in UEFA competitions.
In 2017, the club removed the "Linz" part of their name and returned it to LASK. The merger with FC Linz has long fallen apart, and the club have now removed "Linz" from the name.
