Business Partner of VfB Stuttgart

Business Partner of VfB Stuttgart

In May 2018, FutureNet became an official business partner in sports cooperation between German 1. Bundesliga football team VfB Stuttgart.

VfB Stuttgart is one of the most recognizable football clubs in Germany. Established in 1893, it has great tradition and respect among fans of German football. VfB Stuttgart won German championship 5 times, four times was second and three times the team finished third in 1. Bundesliga. The team reached other successes in national cup tournaments: it won German Cup three times and once it was the winner of German Supercup.

Bundesliga, which is the highest class of football games in Germany, was established in 1963. Since then, VfB Stuttgart spent only three seasons in the lower league. There are not too many football teams in Germany which can boast of similar success.

During all these years, VfB Stuttgart attracted many excellent players. Just to mention Cacau, Kevin Kuranyi, Giovanne Elber, Andreas Müller, Jens Lehmann, Philipp Lahm, Mario Gomez, Jürgen Klinsmann, Aleksandar Hleb or Markus Babbel. Each of these players has a well-deserved place in the history of football in Europe and in the world. And each of them was a player of VfB Stuttgart.


Back on track. VfB Stuttgart - FC Augsburg 1:0

VfB Stuttgart had a rather rough start of the season. For some time they were on the bottom of Bundesliga's table. It got to a level where they simply had to bounce back. Their 1:0 win against 1. FC Augsburg might be a sign of things to come. It was a vital match for Stuttgart and a win that they desperately needed. Anastasios Donis became the hero of the match Andreas Beck's assist. VfB Stuttgart fought really hard to keep the score in their favor. - Obviously we're delighted with this win, which was important for everyone at the club. The team fought brilliantly. During the week we thought about what would be best against Augsburg and we decided to play with three at the back. I expected my team to be solid and they were. We want to take the momentum from this win and pick up more points in the coming weeks - says Markus Weinzierl, VfB Stuttgart's manager. The team is now on the 16th place in Bundesliga, has 11 points and trails with only 4 points to secure, 12th place in the league. It all means that VfB Stuttgart players will have a lot of hard work to do to move up in the table but there’s a clear vision that the team is able to reach this goal.

Important clash ahead of VfB Stuttgart

On Friday, November 23, football team VfB Stuttgart will meet Bayer 04 Leverkusen. This match will be very important for the team from Stuttgart. Victory can help it escape the Bundesliga relegation zone. Before the match, which will be played in Leverkusen, Bayer 04 has 11 points and takes 13th place in the table. VfB will come to Leverkusen as the last team in the league with 8 points). Teams that are above the VfB in the table have a small advantage, which means that victory will give the Stuttgart team a significant promotion. However, it won't be easy for VfB to win because Bayer - although this season is playing just average - is a team made up of many solid players, for example goalie Lukas Hradecky, defender Sven Bender or strikers: Karim Bellarabi, Paulinho or Julien Brandt. Bayer 04 coach is Heiko Herrlich, a former great striker, well known in the football world in Germany. As you can see, the team from Leverkusen - which played even in UEFA Champions League in previous years - has a lot of potential and it is difficult for any opponent to score even a draw with it. VfB Stuttgart coach Markus Weinzielr informs that in Leverkusen he will miss several important players in the composition. It's injured: Holger Badstuber and Daniel Didavi, as well as a few long-term absentees Alexander Meyer, Berkay Özcan and Borna Sosa. Anastasios Donis have been healing from the injury in the last couple of days and his involvement will be considered just before the game in Leverkusen.

VfB Stuttgart players on duties in their national teams

Two VfB Stuttgart players, Beniamin Pavard and Santiago Ascacibar, were nominated to national teams for the upcoming matches. Pavard will play two matches in the French national team. On Friday, November 16, he will play against the Netherlands in the UEFA League of Nations, and on November 20 he will compete against Uruguay in a friendly game. And Santiago Ascacibar, together with the Argentine team, will play in two sparrings with Mexico. Appearances in the national team are also waiting for young footballers of VfB Stuttgart. German youth player Timo Baumgartl will play in the German U-21 national team and David Kopacz was appointed to the U-21 in Poland.

VfB Stuttgart with a new coach on board

Markus Weinzierl will lead the VfB Stuttgart team. The 43 years-old coach has signed the contract until the end of June 2020. This season, his task will be to take away the team from the bottom of the Bundesliga table. After seven games of the season, VfB Stuttgart has 5 points and is last in the table. That's why the club's bosses decided it was time to change. They thanked coach Tayfun Korkut for their cooperation and hired Markus Weinzierl in his place. The 43-year-old as a football player played in the 2. Bundesliga teams. In his coach career, he worked in SSV Jahn Regensburg, FC Augsburg and Schalke 04 Gelsenkirchen. With FC Augsburg in the 2015/2016 season he won promotion to the UEFA Europa League. This is his biggest success in the coaching career so far. - We’ve signed a success-hungry coach, who knows the Bundesliga quite exactly and he also knows what our situation requires. Our discussions were very trusted and goal-oriented. We are convinced that we have signed the right head-coach for VfB in Markus Weinzierl. He will decisively develop our team further – explains Michael Reschke, sports director of VfB Stuttgart.

Hannover 96 - VfB Stuttgart 3:1

Ambition, fight and commitment sometimes is just not enough. VfB Stuttgart showed the character but lost to Hannover 96 1:3. The hosts have arranged this match in the first half with goals scored by Bobby Wood in the 30th and 45th minutes of the game. VfB answered right after the break - in the 50th minute, Mario Gomez scored the goal and have his team hope that the draw here might be possible. But in the end, it turned out that this evening footballers from Stuttgart just couldn't afford more. The hosts hit again, just before the end of the match. In the additional time, Ihlas Bebou determined the result of the match at 3:1 for the home team. After this defeat, VfB Stuttgart fell to the last place in the Bundesliga table. This means that the club is waiting for big changes, because the coach Tayfun Korkut lost his job. As the club states, this decision was made due to the lack of sports growth of the team. The name of the new coach will be presented within the next few days.

An important match before VfB Stuttgart

The long-awaited breakthrough has happened and now it's time to maintain a good form. Especially when it comes to fighting with a close neighbour from the league table. VfB Stuttgart will face Hannover 96 in an away game. For now, H96 is the worst team in the Bundesliga. In six games it didn't win even once and only twice drew. As a result, Hannover 96 holds the last place in the table. Even so, VfB doesn't have a big advantage over the rival: only 3 points. That's why this match is important: the defeat can bring the VfB closer to the last position, and the victory can be a boost to the middle zone in the table. Coach Tayfun Korkut doesn't have all players at his disposal. Dennis Aogo, Anastasios Donis, Marc Kempf, Alexander Meyer are injured players and are not likely to perform in Hannover. Denis Didavi, who has recently cured the injury, also complains about health. - In Hannover, VfB will be faced by a club experiencing a similar phase in the Bundesliga. I'm expecting a physically tough game - a striker of VfB Stuttgart Mario Gomez points out.

RB Leipzig - VfB Stuttgart 2:0

VfB Stuttgart is still waiting for its first win of the season. On Wednesday, the team led by coach Tayfun Korkut had a tough away game with RB Leipzig. In the previous matches of the season, RB played on the average level and now it's trailing to leading Bayern Munchen by 6 points. But RB Leipzig is always dangerous at own stadium. This is the lesson that VfB was taught on Wednesday. In the dying moments of the first half, RB took the lead surprisingly when Willi Orban scored. As they say in football when you lost a goal just before the break it's always hard to fight back. But VfB was doing its best to overturn the scenario. Coach Tayfun Korkut did changes early and send to the pitch in the 54th minute two reserve players: Gonzales and Badstuber. But it didn't work out. RB Leipzig managed to maintain the lead and in 80. minute Jean-Kevin Augustin made it 2:0 for RB Leipzig. The squad of VfB Stuttgart: Zieler – Maffeo (54. Badstuber), Pavard, Baumgartl, Sosa – Gentner, Ascacibar, Aogo, Thommy (78. Donis) – Akolo (54. Gonzalez), Gomez.

Goalless draw with Fortuna Düsseldorf

The first win is still to come. VfB Stuttgart had high hopes before the match against Fortuna Düsseldorf. With a support of more than 50,000 fans at the stadium, VfB wanted to dominate Fortuna and score its first three points of the season. Eventually, the game finished tied to a goalless draw. Fortuna proved that has good defensive abilities and managed to keep a clean sheet. On the other hand, VfB also performed good in defence but missed effectiveness in the offence. And the team managed by coach Tayfun Korkut drew its second match in a row. The squad of VfB Stuttgart: Zieler - Insua, Baumgartl, Pavard, Beck - Ascacibar, Castro, Akolo (85. Özcan), Akolo (57. Thommy), Gentner (74. Donis) - Gonzalez, Mario Gomes.

VfB wants to win for the first time

It's a difficult season start for the VfB Stuttgart. The team led by coach Tayfun Korkut is still waiting for the first win. In the previous three games, VfB managed to tie one game and lost two. On Friday, September 21, the team from Stuttgart will face Fortuna Düsseldorf - a newcomer in the league. Fortuna stepped into the season slightly better than VfB - before the match in Stuttgart, it has one win, one draw and one loss. With this balance, Fortuna holds 9th place in the league table while VfB Stuttgart is currently on 16th position. It's confirmed that VfB will have to play without three players who suffer from injuries: Marc Oliver Kempf, Borna Sosa and Daniel Didavi. - We are all really looking forward to the home game and want to secure the win - coach Tayfun Korkut clarifies.

SC Freiburg - VfB Stuttgart 3:3

It was a piece of great football! On Sunday, September 16, VfB Stuttgart played away game with SC Freiburg. A team from Stuttgart wanted to score its first points of the season after two defeats in two previous games. And the win was very close. Freiburg opened the game perfectly, after a goal scored by Gondorf in the first minute. With just a minute left to the break, VfB managed to tie the game after a goal scored by Insua. The beginning of the second half belonged to VfB. Mario Gomez shot the goal in 49. minute and gave the lead to its team. SC Freiburg replied just three minutes later and Gondorf scored his second goal of the game. In 56. minute, VfB came out to the lead again and again Mario Gomez was the one who scored. However, the hosts managed to fight back. In 81. minute, Waldschmidt tied the game again and established the final score to 3:3. The squad of the VfB Stuttgart: Zieler - Beck (86. Donis), Baumgartl, Pavard, Insua - Gentner (77. Badstuber), Castro (46. Akolo), Ascacibar, Aogo - Gomez, Gonzalez.

Pavard, who just a few weeks ago started a new season with the VfB, should play important role in the French team.

Bayern München too strong for VfB Stuttgart

It wasn't a good day for the VfB Stuttgart. The team lead by coach Tayfun Korkut had a bitter pill to swallow due to 0:3 loss to Bayern München. This defeat is even more painful because VfB played its first game of the season in front of their own crowd. Unfortunately, it wasn't helpful and reign champions from München were out of reach for VfB. Goals for Bayern München: Goretzka (37.), Lewandowski (62.), Müller (76.). VfB played this game in the following squad: Zieler - Insua, Aogo, Baumgartl, Maffeo, Pavard - Ascacibar, Castro (78. Akolo), Gentner (64. Didavi) - Donis (57. Thommy), Mario Gomes.
