Since January 1, 2018, it has been possible for supporters clubs to register directly at FC Schalke 04. This new ruling was determined during the 2017 General Assembly meeting to change the contribution regulations: “Members of a registered FC Schalke 04 Supporters Club are eligible for their first year free as an ‘Official Member’ at FC Schalke 04.”
The free year is the calendar year of the membership application. The first membership fee will then be calculated in January of the following year as an annual subscription. The minimum length of a membership is two full calendar years. All other information can be found in the “Members” area.
For a supporters club to register for free at FC Schalke 04, there are only a few requirements:
- Acceptance of the mission statement of FC Schalke 04
- Meet a minimum of 11 supporters club members
- The president must be at least 18 years old
- Complete the registration form (download)
- Optional: Clubs can provide a customized fan club logo and/or statute (bylaws).
The contact person for all relevant fan club questions is the Fan Affairs section (firstname.lastname@example.org) to whom the completed PDF registration form can be sent.
Following registration, the supporters club will be assigned a specific registration number. This number must be included in subsequent Membership applications in order to claim the initial free year.
The registration is independent of the membership in the Schalke Fan Club Association (SFCV).
