VfL Wolfsburg’s first-team squad and company management are setting an example and voluntarily waiving a significant proportion of their salaries.
“We have to stand together at this difficult time,” stated VfL captain Josuha Guilavogui on behalf of his teammates. “It’s a sign of solidarity with our parent company Volkswagen, who have donated over €40 million for medical equipment, and with our colleagues at VW and VfL, who have mostly been put on reduced working hours. We want to play our part as a team, and it’s only right that we do.”

“Thank the everyday heroes”
In addition, VfL Wolfsburg will continue to carry out social projects in Wolfsburg and the surrounding area over the coming days and months, as they have already been doing in recent days. As part of an initiative entitled ‘Thanking the everyday heroes’, Wolves players will support those who are helping with the corona crisis. This will start on Friday 3 April with six players stocking shelves for an hour at two Edeka supermarkets.
