German Bundesliga in focus
VfL Wolfsburg, the 2008/09 German title winner, was named as the most sustainable club in the Bundesliga. But the other clubs, the league and the German football association are slowly trying to make environmental stewardship the norm.
There was a time when being at the top end of the table was par for the course for VfL Wolfsburg. An unexpected title win in 2008/09 under the guidance of hardline coach Felix Magath instigated a short, concentrated period of success for the provincial club from Lower Saxony.
