RB Leipzig was founded on 19th May 2009 and successfully achieved promotion four times in seven years to reach the Bundesliga in 2016. Die Roten Bullen have gone on to qualify for the UEFA Champions League four times in five seasons of top-flight football.
In the 2019/20 campaign, we reached the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time, becoming one of Europe's top four clubs – RBL's biggest achievement on the international stage to date.
RB Leipzig stands for attractive and dynamic football, with young and ambitious players and a clear philosophy which has been fully incorporated into our 17 youth teams.
RB Leipzig means football fun for the whole family, in a peaceful environment and with a great atmosphere. With the support of an entire region, this club is making its way towards new horizons.
RB Leipzig is young, dynamic, feisty, and open-minded. RB Leipzig wants to inspire people to fulfil their potential. In Leipzig, in Germany, and all over the world. We want to keep writing history – our club is only just getting started.
Along with the success of our first team, we also place huge focus on the development of youth. With a total of 20 youth teams (five of which are girls’ teams), we've built a fully complete youth structure with teams in every age group from U8s to U19s. All of them have the opportunity to use the wonderful facilities at our training centre at Cottaweg.
In addition, we've had a women's team since the 2016/17 season, who currently play in Bundesliga 2. Our U23s play in the Regionalliga, while there are also U17, U16, U14 and U12 girls' teams.
We are football. We are here to play football and to celebrate football. We want to achieve great things.
