Created and sponsored by Volkswagen, Wolfsburg grew from amateur status in the 1940's, to ending the 2008-2009 season as Bundesliga champs. After surviving the relegation play-offs, the Wolves, which include USA international John Brooks, have enjoyed an encouraging start to the season.
A new shade of home color green for this season's jersey, the dark shirt has bright green accents, including a large "X" on the chest. An image of Wolfsburg Castle is inside the collar. The team badge is sewn on.
