History

VfR Eintracht Wolfsburg was founded in 1973. The team was a founding member of the Bundesliga. In 2003 the team joined VfL Wolfsburg.

The first season under the new name was in 2003–04, which ended with an eighth place, the next season the team was relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga in 12th place but gained direct promotion in the following 2005–06 season. After a fifth place in 2009–10, Wolfsburg grew up one year later, contending for the title and managed to be runner-up in 2011–12.

In the 2012–13 season Wolfsburg won the UEFA Women's Champions League. Two weeks prior the team achieved its first Bundesliga title. They were the second team, after 1. FFC Frankfurt to complete the treble, by also winning the domestic cup competition. This was the first time that the same year both in men's and women's football, clubs from the same nation, complete the treble, with the men's club being Bayern Munich. They were also the first German football team to successfully defend their Champions League title.
