The women's soccer department of VfL Wolfsburg is part of VfL Wolfsburg-Fußball GmbH , a soccer company from Wolfsburg . The company was founded on May 23, 2001. The women's soccer department has existed since July 1, 2003. The first team plays in the Bundesliga . In the 2012/13 season she won the triple of the German Championship , DFB Cup and Champions League .
In 1973 VfR Eintracht Wolfsburg founded a women's football department. The greatest success of this team was the entry into the cup final in 1984 , which was lost 2-0 to SSG 09 Bergisch Gladbach . In 1990 VfR Eintracht was one of the founding members of the Bundesliga and played in the North Season in the following years. In 1997 the qualification for the single-track Bundesliga was missed. Since the club was about to go bankrupt , the footballers switched to Wendschotter SV and competed in the regional league as WSV Wolfsburg . With 21 wins and only one defeat as well as an outstanding goal difference of 121: 1 - the only goal conceded meant the only defeat of the season - the team was already the superior champions of the northern season in the first season and finally sat confidently in the promotion round to the Bundesliga by.
In 2003 the department moved to VfL Wolfsburg. In 2005, the team had to go to the 2nd Bundesliga North as bottom of the table . The immediate resurgence was achieved - not least thanks to Martina Müller , who set a league record that is still valid today with 36 goals this season.
In the 2012/13 season, VfL Wolfsburg achieved a triple - the team won the German championship, the DFB Cup (after a 3-2 win in the final against 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam ) and the UEFA Women's Champions League (by a 1-0 against last year's winner Olympique Lyon ).
One season later (2013/14), VfL became the first German team to defend their Champions League title (with a 4-3 win in the final against Tyresö FF ). The championship could also be defended. In the same season, with a total of 32,261 spectators and an average of 2933 spectators per game, two new league records were achieved. The decisive game for the German championship on the last day of the match against 1. FFC Frankfurt was the best-attended game in the history of the league with 12,464 spectators.
On May 1, 2015, VfL won the DFB Cup for the second time . In the final they defeated 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam 3-0. This success was repeated the following year with a 2-1 win against SC Sand . With the same result against the same final opponent, the women managed the double in 2017 , but the season ended with a dissonance, as the women’s team received the traditional reception in the town hall due to the precarious situation of the Bundesliga men, who were also in relegation was denied.
Until the end of 2014, the venue was the VfL stadium on Elsterweg . Since 2015, the AOK Stadium has been the new venue for the "Wölfinnen". In addition to the Bundesliga team, there are two other women's teams. In the junior division, VfL has two girls 'teams, both of which compete in boys' leagues of the next younger age group. On April 3, 2017, coach Ralf Kellermann announced his resignation at the end of the 2016/17 season in order to become the club's sports director at the start of the new season. His successor as coach was his previous assistant coach Stephan Lerch . After his contract expires on June 30, 2021, Stephan Lerch will leave VfL Wolfsburg, his successor will be Tommy Stroot from July 1, 2021.
