VfL Women fans will have to get used to several new squad numbers next season.

VfL Wolfsburg Women will once again be chasing silverware on three fronts in 2022/23. While the squad for the upcoming campaign has been set in stone for several weeks, it has now been confirmed what numbers the 2021/22 double winners will be wearing on the back of their green and white jerseys. Some of the She-Wolves’ new signings opted for numbers vacated by recent departures, while two players parted with their numbers from last campaign.

No.3 for Agrez

As Germany goalkeeper Almuth Schult’s replacement, it is no surprise to see Schult’s international team-mate Merle Frohms assume the No.1 jersey. In defence, the only available single digit number goes to Slovenia international Sara Agrez, who takes the No.3 shirt that was unassigned last season but is strongly associated with former She-Wolves player Zsanett Jakabfi. New signing Marina Hegering will take the No.31 shirt previously worn by Lotta Cordes, while Jule Brand has opted for No.29, which was also unassigned.

Pajor takes coveted No.9

The biggest switch was initiated by Anna Blässe, whose departure for Grasshopper Club Zürich freed up the coveted No.9 jersey – a shirt traditionally worn by goalscorers. Blässe’s successor Ewa Pajor did not need asking twice.

New signing Kristin Demann takes the No.17 jersey vacated by Pajor, while Sveindis Jonsdottir swaps No.32 for No.23 in the final change from last term.
