The club was first named as BSG Volkswagenwerk Stadt des KdF-Wage, it later changed its name to VSK Wolfsburg.

In 1946 the team was officially sponsored by Volkswagen.

The club official kit is traditionally white and green. The colors were selected when the local trainer decided to use the green shirts with white shorts sewed from bed sheets donated by the club. Wolfsburg or simply Wolves play their home games at Volkswagen-Arena with the capacity of 30,000.
