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.

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.
