Jersey swap: Special edition for match against Nürnberg
FC Schalke 04 and 1. FC Nürnberg have enjoyed a close fan friendship for years. Their supplier Umbro have come up with something very special for the Bundesliga meeting on Friday between the two sides: they will both wear special one-off jerseys.
It is the jersey-made fan friendship: Schalke and Nürnberg will take to the pitch for their Bundesliga encounter in specially designed jerseys. While the Schalke jersey is now printed with the Frankish rake in a light gray stripe pattern and otherwise looks almost completely like the Nürnberg away kit – but with blue instead of red detailing-, the so called “Clubberer” will wear Schalke’s famed mallet and iron motif on their wine-red jersey.
In a way never seen before, the jerseys represent the close and intense fan friendship between the two traditional clubs that have been supplied by the same supplier – the British company Umbro – since the start of the 2018/2019 season.
Alexander Jobst, Schalke’s board member for Marketing and Communications, commented on the special action: “With the special jersey, we our paying tribute to the fan friendship between our club and 1. FC Nürnberg in a unique way. With our joint jersey partner Umbro, we have designed two extraordinary jerseys, which – because they are limited – already have a real collector’s value for many Schalke and Nürnberg fans. ”
FC Schalke 04’s limited edition jersey is available for €84,95 in all fan shops and online on store.schalke04de. The children’s jersey’s available at the price of € 64.95. Please note the shirt can only be purchased in Germany.
