Contract extended

Pia-Sophie Wolter has signed a new deal with VfL Women through to 2025.

Pia-Sophie Wolter verlängert ihren Vertrag beim VfL Wolfsburg und setzt neben sportlichem Leiter Ralf Kellermann ihre Unterschrift unter den Vertrag.

VfL Women’s squad for the 2022/23 campaign was finalised several weeks ago, but the She-Wolves continue to press ahead with their plans for the future after extending midfielder Pia-Sophie Wolter’s contract – which was due to expire on 30 June 2023 – by two years until 30 June 2025.

Wolter has made 55 FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga appearances since joining VfL from SV Werder Bremen ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, not to mention 15 outings in the DFB Cup and 12 in the UEFA Women’s Champions League. The Bremen-born 24-year-old, who has won seven titles with VfL, tore the cruciate ligament in her right knee during the Bundesliga home match against 1. FC Köln in October 2021, which ruled her out for the rest of the season.

“Strong togetherness”

“I’m very happy to be able to wear the VfL shirt for another two years,” said Wolter. “Despite not being able to play in the last nine months, I’ve always felt like a proper member of the team during my injury-enforced absence. It’s precisely that strong togetherness that sets our team apart and was one of the main reasons why I decided to extend my contract – and do so with total conviction. I obviously want to contribute on the pitch again soon so we can enjoy another successful season.”

“Great motivation and discipline”

“Pia has taken a step forward every season since she joined us, which makes it an even bigger shame that her positive development was interrupted by her knee injury,” added Ralf Kellermann, VfL Women sporting director. “But it was great to see how Pia dealt with that setback with her positive attitude. She fought her way back with great motivation and discipline, and I’m very confident that she’ll quickly find her feet again in the new season. I’m very pleased that Pia sees her future with us beyond the upcoming campaign.”
