Schalke and Umbro present royal blue home kit
This is how we look at home: FC Schalke 04 and its new kit supplier Umbro are launching the brand new jersey that the players from now on will be wearing for their home games at VELTINS-Arena. It is now available at all Schalke fan shops and online at store.schalke04.de.
The jersey is a modern interpretation of Schalke’s very own heritage embedded in a customized design – the new home jersey is innovatively presented and yet still refers back to the club’s roots in mining. The center of the jersey has an interlaced hammer and pick; the pattern is shown over the whole shirt. The jersey is emphasized by white sleeve cuffs and a white neckline. The white shorts and blue/white striped socks round off the image.
At Schalke we are particularly proud of our new home shirt.
Alexander Jobst, member of Schalke’s managing board: “At Schalke we are particularly proud of our new home shirt. The jersey combines a simple yet cool look with our tradition that shows the hammer and pick in a very restrained way. It is traditional and classical. We want to thank our partner Umbro, who was very flexible when it comes to working with our design requests.”
“It is a great honour for us to design the Schalke home shirt. A lot of people will wear it so it is particularly important that the players and fans can identify with it,” says Michael Scholz, General Manager at Umbro Germany.
