Well it took long enough but BVB finally will be starting a professional women’s football team.

Earlier this year Watzke said the plans were in motion to start one and it looks like he has followed through. The team will officially come into effect July 2021 for the next season. they will have to start in the lowest possible tier in the pyramid at the Kreisliga B. BVB could have purchased the licence of a higher tier club but decided that was not the BVB way. Something tells me with BVB backing we will rise through the ranks quite easily. If BVB even spent 5% of what they spent on the men’s team our women’s team could be one of the dominating forces in Bundesliga. It may take 8 years minimum to get there but eventually get there.

Judging by the fans that show up for BVB 2 game si assume the BVB womens team will have quite a showing even in the Kreisliga. They may not play in the Westfalenstadion but the wall will travel wherever they go.

Welcome to women's football BVB!
