Domenico Tedesco: A one-off and emotional game

The last home game of the year is coming up and will see Schalke commemorate the closing of the coal mine industry at the same time. The players’ shirts will all have a different name of a coal mine on them for the game against Bayer Leverkusen (19/12, 18:30 CET). There will be a number of miners in attendance at the VELTINS-Arena – and Schalke 04 want to give them a memorable evening, not only by winning three points.

Like the coal industry, football – and especially FC Schalke 04 – is deeply connected to the so-called “Ruhrgebiet”, the Ruhr area. The men who founded Schalke in 1904 were working-class people who completed apprenticeships at the mine. Mining is therefore an essential part of our founding history; our founding fathers are born on coal.
