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.
