RB Leipzig is a professional German football club that was founded in 2009 by the company Red Bull. Before being bought out and renamed, RB Leipzig had gone by the name SSV Markranstadt, which was a German side playing down in the fifth tier. Red Bull had set plans for RB Leipzig to power through the lower leagues and reach the Bundesliga within eight years, however, the promising side achieved this a year ahead of schedule.

RB Leipzig currently plays their home games at the Red Bull Arena, which has a capacity of 42,959 and have done so for the entirety of their history. It is the 15th-largest football stadium in Germany. RB Leipzig is commonly referred to by their nickname Die Roten Bullen which translates as The Red Bulls.

RB Leipzig Honours

RB Leipzig have a pretty impressive list of honours and achievements during their short history. They have twice finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga already, although they are still yet to be crowned champions of Germany. However, without doubt their greatest achievement to date was winning the DFB-Pokal, which they did in the 2021/22 season. It was their third attempt of doing so and their second in as many years as they previously lost finals to Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in 2019 and 2021, respectively.

Their only other trophy wins to this point have come throughout the lower leagues of German football. RB Leipzig were crowned champions of the NOFV-Oberliga Süd in 2009/10 and the Regionalliga Nordost in 2012/13. Other promotions from the 3.Liga and 2.Bundesliga came when they finished as runners-up in 2013/14 and 2015/16, respectively. Their performances in the Bundesliga have also seen them qualify for Europe on a regular basis in the last few seasons, where they have managed to reach the semi-finals of both the Champions League and Europa League.

RB Leipzig History

RB Leipzig’s predecessors, SSV Markranstädt had little success in their time as a club with them failing to progress past the fifth tier of German football which was named the NOFV-Oberliga Sud. Once RB Leipzig had taken SSV Markranstädt’s place in the NOFV-Oberliga Sud in 2009, it did not take them long earn their first silverware with them winning the title in their debut season. The Red Bulls won the title in style achieving 80 points from 26 wins, two draws and two defeats, which saw them win by a 22 point lead over second place. Leipzig’s first season in the Regionalliga Nord saw them finish in fourth place before they gained promotion the following year after finishing in third place. The up and coming side did not waste any time once they were in the third tier of German football (3.Liga), as they gained their second promotion in a matter of two years to take them into the 2.Bundesliga.

RB Leipzig’s first season in the 2.Bundesliga saw them finish in fifth place, with them missing out on the promotion play-off spot by eight points. However, the Red Bulls did not dwell on their miss-fortune with them gaining promotion into the top tier of German football, known as the Bundesliga in the following year – 2015/16. The newcomers shocked the league when they finished runners-up in their debut season, but were ultimately outclassed by a dominant Bayern Munich side that won the league with three games to spare. The next two seasons saw RB Leipzig finish in sixth and third place respectively.
