In the new 2018/2019 season, the Development-Squad from VfL Wolfsburg will participate in the Premier League International Cup in England for the third time. Comprised of talented youngsters from our professional team, as well as players from the Under 23 and Under 19 squads, the Green-Whites will again lock horns with some of the most highly renowned clubs in European football. This year, Norwich City, Tottenham Hotspur and Athletic Club Bilbao will be the VfL Wolfsburg opponents at the tournament in England. The VfL Development-Squad will again be coached by Ton Lokhoff.
Accolade of renewed invitation
For Pablo Thiam, Sporting director of the VfL-Fußball.Akademie, renewed participation in the "Premier League International Cup" is an exceptional accolade: "The fact that VfL Wolfsburg have been invited to participate again this year is certainly not self-evident. Normally, the Premier League only invite clubs that progressed through the group stage in previous years. However, our team and the entire staff presented themselves so exceptionally, both on as well as off the pitch in the past two tournaments, that an exception was made. We are delighted to have the opportunity to test ourselves against top-class opposition again this season."
