Bayern Munich Women pull off coup to sign Lena Oberdorf!

FC Bayern Munich have signed Lena Oberdorf. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder has been handed a contract until June 30, 2028 and will join FCB Women in the summer 2024 from VfL Wolfsburg.

FC Bayern Women department head Bianca Rech said, “Lena Oderdorf is one of the most talented players in Germany and has a terrific future ahead of her. We’re delighted that we were able to convince Lena to join FC Bayern. We’re looking forward to her playing for us from the summer onwards, as we are convinced that Lena represents the values as a footballer that we need to continue to be successful in the future.”

Lena Oberdorf said, “I had good discussions with head coach Alexander Straus and department head Bianca Rech and I really liked the club’s vision of what they want to accomplish in the next few years. They also showed me where my potential lies and what they can still get out of me. I don’t think I’m a complete player yet – but I want to get there. I will continue to give my all for VfL Wolfsburg until the summer and then look forward to the new challenge.”

Oberdorf has already earned 44 Germany caps at senior level and made 99 Bundesliga appearances. Born in Gevelsberg, she made her debut for SGS Essen in the Women’s Bundesliga in 2018 before joining VfL Wolfsburg in 2020. The U17 European champion was awarded the Fritz Walter Medals in bronze (2018), silver (2019) and gold (2020), and was voted best young player of the tournament at the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 in England.
