Just as any decent football team needs more than 11 players, an established Bundesliga club is made up of more than one component. Running a professional football club for over 25 years would have been impossible without the appropriate foundations, which have been continually professionalised over time. The Green-Whites' men's team is not the only side to have made an impact beyond the local region, with the VfL Ladies also the Wolfsburg flag in the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga, the DFB Cup and UEFA Women's Champions League.

Information on the VfL men's and women's sides, the women's youth academy and all the teams in the VfL-Fußball-Akademie – from the Under-10s through to the Under-23s – can be found on the following pages.
