Fans of the “squires” will recognise in the jersey a tribute to the legendary Schalke jerseys from the seasons 1992/93 and 1993/94. The iconic nineties optics have been transformed into a contemporary design and hit the nerve of today’s generation. A jersey that brings the Schalke spirit from the stadium to the streets of Germany’s Ruhr area (Ruhrgebiet).

The blue stripes on the sleeve express the Schalke 04 identity. Likewise, the fans’ declaration of love printed in the neck area to the club: “S04 – We live you” („S04 – Wir leben dich“). The jersey is combined with blue pants and white socks with blue stripes.

The away kit will be available in the adidas online shop (www.adidas.de/Football), Schalke 04 (store.schalke04.de and all fan shops) and other stores starting May 15.
