Schalke 04 was founded on 4 May 1904. Die Koningsblauen were seven times national champion. The last time was already in 1958. Five times the German Cup was seized and once the German Super Cup was won. Schalke also has one international prize in the trophy cabinet, namely a UEFA Cup. This was won in 1997.
The team of trainer David Wagner plays her home games in the beautiful Veltins Arena which seats 54 740 spectators.
Schalke 04 had a terribly bad season in terms of the Bundesliga. After five games, the number two of last season was even in the relegation zone with zero points. Then things went a little better, but still a resignation of then-trainer Domenico Tedesco was inevitable. Huub Stevens took over and managed to keep Schalke 04 for the Bundesliga with among other a spectacular 2-4 win over arch rival Borussia Dortmund.
In the Champions League however, Schalke 04 did a great job. The Gelsenkirchen team came in second in its group with 11 points. However, after the winter break, Schalke immediately found her Waterloo in Manchester City.
