No pre-season training camp in Mittersill
Unlike previous years, FC Schalke 04 will not be taking part in pre-season training camp in Mittersill, Austria, ahead of the 2020/21 season. The team had announced its training camp would take place from 21st to 29th August, which conflicts with other private bookings at the Hotel Schloss Mittersill. The hotel lacks the capacity to accommodate all these requests, which the club has taken into account.
