RB Leipzig was founded on 19th May 2009 and has been a part of a special city with a long footballing history and a great passion for the sport ever since. We have continued to write history with four promotions in seven years to reach the Bundesliga in 2016.
Top 4 in Europe and cup winners
We have since established ourselves among Germany’s top teams and have qualified for the UEFA Champions League five times in our six top-flight seasons.
Those strong performances have also been seen in Europe too, having reached the semi-finals of both the Champions League (2020) and the Europa League (2022) in recent years.
Our biggest success to date came on 21st May 2022 when we won the DFB-Pokal at Berlin’s Olympiastadion.
Clear philosophy both on and off the pitch
RB Leipzig stands for attractive and dynamic football, with young and ambitious players and a clear philosophy which has been fully embodied by our 18 academy sides and our women’s team.
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 fulfill 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.
