A great accolade for Die Roten Bullen! We were acknowledged with two awards at the Saxony Sport Gala on Saturday evening in front of over 1,100 guests in the sold-out Internationale Congress Center Dresden:
RB Leipzig were named Saxony’s “Team of the Year” 2017, acknowledging our incredible work in the 2016-17 season, during which we directly qualified for the Champions League as Bundesliga runners-up in our first ever season in the top flight.
The result was decided half by the almost 10,000 votes cast by sports fans and half by a vote between Saxony’s sports journalists to give the overall result.
Ralph Hasenhüttl took away the prize for Saxony’s “Coach of the Year” 2017. This result was decided by a vote of Saxony’s sports journalists.
Ralph Hasenhüttl, Willi Orban, Lukas Klostermann, Péter Gulácsi and Marcel Halstenberg were on hand to accept the awards.
Many thanks to all those who voted for us. We are extremely proud of the result!
Our congratulations, of course, go out to all other winners and runners-up.
