The 25-year-old striker takes over from Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, who is expected to leave the club at the latest next year when his contract expires.
Demirovic's deputies are Niklas Dorsch and Elvis Rexhbecaj. The trio make up the team council along with Sven Michel, Finn Dahmen and Mads Pedersen.
"I am very proud to be the captain of FC Augsburg and to lead our team," said Demirovic.
"Together with my fellow captains Niklas Dorsch and Elvis Rexhbecaj and the entire team council, we want to move forward and make sure that we perform as a team with unity and heart in every game and achieve our goals."
