She-Wolves named 2023 Team of the Year

VfL Women retain their crown at the Lower Saxony Sports Awards.

VfL Wolfsburg Women have been named Team of the Year at the Lower Saxony Sports Awards for the second year in succession – and for the fifth time overall. She-Wolves striker Rebecka Blomqvist received the award on behalf of the squad at the ‘Ball des Sports’ in Hanover on Friday evening. In a vote among football fans and a jury of experts, VfL came out on top after lifting the DFB Cup and reaching the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League in 2023.

“Very special”

The She-Wolves also won the 2014, 2016 and 2017 editions of the award before claiming the accolade for the second successive time last week. “Winning the award for the fifth time is very special for us,” said Blomqvist. “We’re really pleased that so many people voted for us.”
