History of Wolfsburg
Originally, in 1943 Wolfsburg had one soccer team made up of workers from the local Volkswagen factory. Two years after this during the aftermath of WWII a new club was started called VSK Wolfsburg who played in the famous green and white kits. Later that year, they had to rebuild the team and adopted the name VfL Wolfsburg. Vfl stands for ‘Verein für Leibesübungen’ which translates to ‘Club for Exercise’.
Situated north-east of the Wolfsburg city centre are the club’s grounds – Volkswagen Arena. Seating approx. 30K supporters, you are sure to see a vast range of fans dressed in the Wolfsburg home kit. Roughly a 1.3KM walk away from the stadium is the team’s training grounds in Allerpark.
Across their 72 years collectively playing as a team, Wolfsburg has acquired a number of trophies. Their most successful leagues where they won three times are Amateuroberliga Niedersachsen-Ost and Lower Saxony Cup. However, their biggest achievement of all was winning the German Bundesliga in 08/09.

- Lower Saxony Cup Winners – 1962, 2002, 2003
- Oberliga Nord Winners – 1991, 1992
