Born on the 19 February 1965 (aged 56 years and 7 months old), we call him the famous super-hockey Dad. Andreas Volland began his career as a striker with EV Pfronten, an ice hockey club in Pfronten, Germany.
In 1993, a year after Kevin was born, Andreas Volland played at the World Cup for Germany, achieving three scorer points in six games. The German ice hockey legend retired with (EV Pfronten) the same club he started his career in the year 2004. Since hanging his boots, Andreas has had the most influential role in his son’s life.
The super father of three is proud of what his family has achieved in sports. Both Andreas and his first son together form one of the greatest duos in German sports. Despite Kevin’s shift from ice hockey to football, he still finds time to play the old career with his super-dad.
About Kevin Volland Mother:
There is one thing people can relate – that most first son of families have that special bond with their mums. This is true between Anita and Kevin. The mother of three shares a special relationship with her first child, who took after her smile – but Daddy’s looks.
Back in the days, while her husband got very busy with his ice hockey career, Anita was the one who managed the early careers of her boys. We appreciate her for supporting Andreas, as she once shuttled her sons (back and forth) from training to their family home when they began their careers.
About Robin Volland:
Kevin’s brother, born in the year 1994, is two years younger than him. Robin also began his career in ice hockey – following his Dad’s footsteps before switching to football. Finding it hard to rise above amateur football. Robin now lives in the shadow of his celebrity brother, Kevin. Thou never envious of his brother, Robin once told the media how some fans of Kevin treated him;
ON MY BIRTHDAY, MOST PEOPLE PREFER TO ASK ME HOW MY BROTHER, KEVIN WAS DOING RATHER THAN CONGRATULATING ME. THAT PUKED ME.
It is pertinent to note that Kevin Volland’s brother had other passion while growing up. In fact, Robin has been creative and loved drawing as a child. Back then, he went so far scratching the hood of his Dad’s car – drawing a wolf. Truth is, football was his hobby, BUT drawing became his calling.
As a substitute for football, Robin went into ICT training in a Munich school. He studied network administration before specializing in graphic design and filmography. Reflecting on one weakness, he fought in the quest to become a professional footballer, Robin once said;
ONE DAY, I SPOKE WITH MY DAD SAYING “I WANT TO BECOME A PRO.” THERE WERE SALAD BOWLS ON THE FAMILY DINING TABLE WHERE I ATE FROM.
MY FATHER LOOKED AT ME AND SAID: BOY, MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS. BACK THEN, I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE EIGHT PIECES OF CAKE ON MY PLATE… SAYS THE YOUNGER BROTHER OF KEVIN, AS HE LAUGHS.
Those days, Robin just loved to eat and drink. Now, when he is not into IT design, he does any of the following; (a) Watching Netflix (b) Playing the Playstation or (c) Going to watching his big brother play live games.
About Jenny Volland:
Born in the year 1996, she is the youngest of the family. Kevin Volland’s sister is three years younger to him and two years to Robin. Jenny’s social media has her picture with a child which indicates she might be married. Unlike Robin, she has made a conscious effort of not revealing her information to the public domain.

Kevin Volland Untold Facts:
Having digested so much in our memoir about the German striker, we’ll use this concluding section to tell you more truths you might not know about him. Without further ado, let’s begin.
Fact #1 – Comparing his Salary to the Average Citizen :
|TENURE||Monaco Salaries -Earnings in Euros (€)|
Since viewing Kevin Volland‘s Bio, this is what he has earned with AS Monaco.
The average German who earns approximately 45,240 Euros every year would need to work for 9 years and 6 months to earn Kevin Volland’s monthly salary with AS Monaco.
Fact #2 – What he Does at Home:
Although competitive in nature, he also loves every form of virtual challenge. You can’t come to Kevin Volland’s house without finding the latest must-have gaming accessory – the PlayStation console.
Fact #3 – Kevin Volland’s Religion:
The German footballer comes from a tightly knit Catholic family and his Christian faith still a part of his life. Did you know?… Kevin Volland, out of the huge respect for his religion, once travelled to see the Pope.
Fact #4- FIFA Facts:
The German joined many footballers who suffer from poor ratings. It is unjust for FIFA (as of 2021) to consider Kevin Volland as someone who has reached his climax. At 27-year-old, the striker boost with an excellent scoring record with AS Monaco. Put simply, Kevin deserves an improvement in his overall and potential FIFA stats.
Fact #5- The Forgotten German Striker:
On 8 May 2014, joy befell the Volland family as one of their own (Kevin) got called to represent the German national team for the first time. Despite being on top form for his club side (1899 Hoffenheim), Joachim Löw refused to select him, talk less of making Kevin as a backup to Mario Gomez in his 2014 World Cup list.
Again, the poor footballer was also doing well with Bayer Leverkusen but still couldn’t get picked for the 2018 World cup. This happened when the likes of Timo Werner and Marco Reus became the only forward on Joachim Low’s list. At this juncture, we conclude that the German national team has not done Kevin well. The truth is, he deserves a call for Euro 2020 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Judging from his performance so far, we can attest that he is an underrated baller. Even thou Kevin Volland’s club career has been solid and nothing short of the spectacular, the German often struggles to get enough recognition for his efforts.
There is hope with his breakthrough with AS Monaco. As I write his Bio, Volland now blends into a team that seems to have found its balance. A club with experienced midfield players like Cesc Fabregas and partner forwards Aleksandr Golovin.
Finally, it behoves lifebogger to appreciate Katja (his wife), Anita (his mum), Andreas (his Dad) and siblings (Robin and Jenny). They have all stood by him not just in joyful moments – but also at the time he experienced heartbreak (not getting a world cup national team call).
