Mercedes-Benz JuniorCup January 5 & 6, 2018

VfB Stuttgart

The VfB Stuttgart is the "home team" of the Mercedes-Benz Junior Cup and is the only team that has participated in all 27 tournaments thus far.

You can always expect to see the VfB Stuttgart at the Glaspalast. For instance, when the U19 fought long against relegation from the Bundesliga Group South in the past season, yet still made the leap into the final for the twelfth time in Sindelfingen. At the end, the team made it to second place.

Overall, the VfB has been 17 times on the podium for the award ceremony, with Joshua Kimmich as the best player in 2013. Berkay Öczan, nowadays a regular player in the Bundesliga team of VfB, played in Sindelfingen back in 2016. This year’s placard, advertises David Grötzinger, who also competed in last year’s VfB tournament. As in every year, the VfB will nominate its team for the Junior Cup at short notice.
