Schalke 04 unveiled their new 08/10 home shirt made by adidas The new home kit will be used for the next two seasons. The club was founded on May 4, 1904 as Westfalia Schalke by a group of high school students and first wore the colors red and yellow. In 1924, the football team parted ways with the gymnasts once again – this time taking the club chairman along with them. They took the name FC Schalke 04 and adopted the now familiar blue and white uniforms from which their second nickname would derive – "Die Königsblauen" (The Royal Blues).
The new home shirt will be first worn at the home match against Eintracht Frankfurt. The fans can enjoy this kit the day before. On Friday (9.5.) Launched at the S04 shop on the club grounds and available at the online store. For supporters of the royal blue adidas has done something very special. This is the first time the words "Schalke 04" appear at the front of the collar. And in the neck band, anyone can read about what the institution motto is :"EIN LEBEN LANG, BLAU UND WEISS EIN LEBEN LANG" which means something like : "A MY LIFE, BLUE AND WHITE ALL MY LIFE." And the counterfeiting increased security, the security hologram. And finally, of course, the embroidered logos of FC Schalke 04 and adidas.
