Schalke 04 was founded on 4 May 1904. After a few difficult years, Die Koningsblauen finished last season in a meritorious second place, which gives the right to playing Champions League in the season 2018/2019.
Schalke 04 was 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 the young trainer Domenico Tedesco plays her home games in the beautiful Veltins Arena which seats 54 740 spectators.
Schalke 04 has a terribly bad season with regard to the competition. After five games, the number two of last season was even last with zero points. Tedesco had been told by the board at the beginning of the season that Schalke 04 should play more attractively. This then resulted in five defeats. The trainer then decided to adjust the tactics, after which it gradually improved. Schalke 04 enters the winter break in thirteenth place with only eighteen points. Therefore they are four points above the relegation line. So the club still has enough to fight for after the winter break.
In the Champions League Schalke 04 performed very well. The team from Gelsenkirchen was second in her group with 11 points.
