No one can argue that VfL Wolfsburg are ignoring the issue of climate change. Not only since the Green-and-Whites joined the “Race to Zero” and set themselves a target of net zero by 2025, the Wolves have been continuously working on improving their own environmental record. A particularly challenging area is transport, as 60 percent of all CO2 emissions come from fans travelling to and from games. VfL is now taking action on this: both the men’s home match against VfB Stuttgart on Saturday 1 October (kick-off 15:30 CEST) at the Volkswagen Arena as well as the She-Wolves’ fixture against Bayer 04 Leverkusen the day before (kick-off 19:16 CEST) at the AOK Stadion will be dedicated to climate protection and accompanied by special campaigns.
Central to the 2022 “climate matchday“ is a call to all fans to use environmentally friendly modes of transport for both home matches and travel by bike, local public transport or rail.
Donations and spaces for electric bikes
Fans attending the match against Stuttgart on Saturday can expect an accompanying programme including a matchday mile with information and action stands on the topics of climate-friendly transport and energy efficiency.
At the AOK Stadion, 25 guarded and covered spaces for electric bikes will be installed. If the goals fly on the pitch on Friday, then the environment will also benefit because as part of a league-wide campaign by the DFB, all participating clubs in the FLYERALARM Women's Bundesliga will donate 100 euros for every goal they score, which in turn will benefit other climate protection projects.
