1.FC Wolfsburg

An obscure club in the Stadt-des-KdF-Wagen. Must be sponsored by a Toyota dealership.

The club was started in 1945 as the Volkssport- und Kulturverein Wolfsburg. Perhaps in recognition that there was no other Kultur in the manufactured city, they decided to just play soccer, becoming 1.FC (VfL also grew out of the same seperation.)

After some modest success in the early 1960s, the club disappeared. Since VW decided to bless VfL, there was no room for them.

Full Name Erster Fußballclub Wolfsburg e.V. 1945
City Wolfsburg (Niedersachsen). Pop: 120,493 (2007). Until after WW-II, the city was known as "Stadt des KdF-Wagen". ("Kraft durch Freude"-Wagen was the original Volkswagen, a car promoted by the Nazi mass social recreation organization)
Address Suhler Straße 1 38440 Wolfsburg Phone: 05361-873112, Fax: 05361- 77 13
Colors White jersey, red shorts/socks
Stadium Porsche-Stadion.
Started in 1948 as a field, it was built out by the club until 1953. However the maintenance cost proved to be too much, so it was given to the city. The city in turn built a changing room with showers (1964), and gives FCW priority use.
