Authentic Schalke 04 Football Shirts from adidas
The latest range of Schalke shirs and jerseys available with official Schalke kit printing.
They’ve had to watch Ruhr rivals become top-dogs in German football temporarily, but FC Schalke 04 are undeterred and mean business.
For months, whilst Dortmund have suffered at the hands of FC Bayern, Schalke have looked to rub their noses in it with their 2013/14 White Adidas away shirt being advertised right in-front of Signal Iduna Park. The Royal Blues stand by their famous nickname and the 13/14 Royal Blue home jersey will be the most prominent colour around Gelsenkirchen next season.
Although Schalke 04 have yet to win the Bundesliga, they will be back in the UEFA Champions League next season with the aim of reaching the latter rounds of the competition under head coach Jens Keller. They had to overcome stiff resistance from SC Freiburg in a one-off match for fourth-place, but they came out with a 1-0 win, thanks to a homegrown talent, now the club’s focal point and poster boy: Julian Draxler.
The 19-year-old will be the famous ‘10’ – ‘Zehner in German’ – next season in attacking-midfield and it won’t be a surprise to see many young Schalkerers running around the Veltins Arena with Schalke’s Draxler 10 home shirt in 2013/14. Add to that, the arrival of young talent Max Meyer and the experience of talismanic forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who will be out to prove his international credentials after a disappointing 2012/13.
Schalke have added Felipe Santana from Borussia Dortmund and will secure the services of Leon Goretzka for next season on a long-term contract, as the Royal Blues look to challenge the dominance of FC Bayern and Dortmund. As the second biggest club in Germany, going by memberships, Keller has had a small taste of the pressure in his interim spell with the club.
There aren’t many as well-supported as Schalke 04 and expect their 2013/14 Adidas ranges to very popular, as well as, the far-stretching Adidas merchandise from Bundesliga Replica ‘Tor-Fabrik’ balls, and others.
