ABOUT

Wolfsburg History


Verein für Leibesübungen Wolfsburg commonly known as VFL Wolfsburg was founded on 12 September 1945. It actually grew from a multi-sports club of Volkswagen company workers in the city of Wolfsburg. VFL Wolfsburg was the first club for the city which came into existence in the year 1938. 


The club almost ceased to exist on 15 December 1945 when all players except one named Josef Meyer left the club. Josef along with Willi Hilbert went on to sign new players and rebuild the team.


Wolfsburg have not achieved much success as a team but have witnessed some great matches with intense heat and importance. The club may have not won many titles but have played some matches that went on to decide the league.


Wolfsburg Logo

Wolfsburg logo was a 'W' inside a ring, on which VFL Wolfsburg was written. The logo consisted of only the green color. There was a change in the logo in the year 1969 when the green color faded a bit and the ring of the logo was changed by a circle without VFL Wolfsburg written on the logo. 


The last change till now was made in the year 2002 when the circle was replaced by an incomplete circle and the color was made brighter with a change in the font of 'W'.


Wolfsburg Stadium- Volkswagen Arena

After the formation of the club in 1945, the club used to play its home games in the VFL stadium which had a capacity of 21,600. With the increase in requirement of capacity and the need of a better stadium, Wolfsburg constructed a new stadium by the name of Volkswagen Arena after the name of their owner company Volkswagen. Volkswagen Arena has a capacity of 30,000 and was inaugurated in 2002.

Wolfsburg Relegation

Season 2017-18 did not bring any good news either and Wolfsburg’s position in the league did not change. They faced Holstein Kiel in the playoffs whom they defeated by a 4-1 scoreline on aggregate, again keeping them in the Bundesliga.
