wolfsburg football club record and performances

VFL Wolfsburg are normally known to be one hit wonders since they came out of nowhere to clinch a Bundesliga title which caused a wave of shock not only in Germany but globally. The club has never been known to be big performers and their record suggests that as well.

The highest point for Wolfsburg football club came within the 2008-2009 season when they performed exceptionally well and won the Bundesliga title beating sides of the caliber of Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkeusen and other big boys of German football. Having won the Bundesliga title many of us would have thought the club would have done really well in other national tournaments if not in Europe but in reality even that picture is gloomy. In DFB-Pokal which is also at times known as the German national cup, VFL Wolfsburg football club have only been runners up once in the 1994-1995 season.

Over the years, the club has won a few amateur tournaments though such is not a performance associated with a club that has been the champions of Germany. In the midst of all this, one thing is very positive, VFL Wolsburg have been performing exceptionally well within the youth circuit in the recent years which only testifies that the club has a really bright future ahead.

Based in one of the most happening cities in Germany, FSV Mainz 05 Football Club is based in Mainz Rhineland-Palatinate. The club was initially formed in 1903 but it went through a lot of mergers in a short period of time and eventually settled down with it’s current name in 1919.

Playing their home games in Stadion am Bruchweg with a capacity of over twenty thousand, FSV Mainz 05 FC play in their usual home kit colored red and white. The club did not get a chance to play top flight football for a very long time since they mostly played in the German second division and mostly finished middle of the table. Eventually under the inspirational managerial leadership of Jurgen Klopp, FSV Mainz 05 won a ticket to the German Bundesliga in 2004. The very same season, they received a ticket to the UEFA Cup under the fair play rule eventually losing out to the subsequent champions Sevilla football club.

The club has since then been facing constant relegations only to return back to the top flight but there seems to be a lack of consistency which is frustrating for the owners and the fans. However, the current season has been very promising and the club is well away from the relegation zone which in itself would be a major victory for them.
