S04 to begin working with international partner clubs

The Royal Blues are making a change to the pathway from the academy to the first team. As part of the new sporting structure at FC Schalke 04, the club will now begin working with international partner clubs. The aim is to allow young players for whom it is too early to make the leap into the first team to gain match practice at an appropriate level, and therefore help these youngsters to develop further. Both the partners and S04 will additionally benefit from an exchange of ideas and a joint network.
