With five championships won over the course of the decade, Rapid Vienna dominated Austrian club football during the 1950s.

This successful era reached its peak during the 1956-57 season. The brilliant midfielder Gerhard Hanappi was at the height of his considerable powers and the defence was strengthened by the return of another legendary Rapid player, Ernst Happel, back in the Austrian capital after two seasons playing in France.

His former defensive partner Max Merkel had retired but made a successful transition to become the team's new coach. His entertaining Rapid team scored 100 League goals and narrowly finished ahead of city rivals First and FK Austria meaning die Grün-Weißen (the green-whites) retained their national title.
