Blue-Whites night excites German and Chinese fans

The Blue-Whites night has been a special day in the calendar at FC Schalke 04’s training camps for many years and it remains as popular today as it was from day one! Approximately 100 Royal-Blues fans in Beijing attended a special evening with the club at the team hotel on Saturday (07/07) following a special invitation to fans.

The highlight of the evening was, as ever, the visit from the entire team, who arrived in good spirits to the delight of all fans young and old. They sat alongside Ralf Fährmann and co. to watch the World-Cup quarter-final between England and Sweden, exchanged views with the supporters, signed dozens of autographs and of course, posed for some selfies.

Kick-about with the captain

In addition, Schalke’s captain took part in a number of competitions with and against the fans alongside the rest of his teammates. These included table football and a mini-goal challenge, with all involved laughing as they witnessed some spectacular goals. Mascot Erwin also joined in the fun, much to the entertainment of all concerned.

Naldo, who joined Ralf Fährmann in being one of the last players to leave the Blue-Whites night, expressed his excitement at the whole occasion. “It doesn’t matter where we are, there are Schalke fans everywhere,” said the delighted defender as he and the rest of the team ensured that the club’s fan base continues to expand in the Far East.

The enthusiasm for FC Schalke 04 in China continues to grow rapidly and many Germans who are living in Beijing meet regularly with the Chinese supports to follow the team’s matches together. It is in this way that many friendships have been formed through a shared passion for the Royal Blues.
