HRS are FC Schalke 04’s new training kit partner

FC Schalke 04 have secured a long-term partnership with HRS, a hotel booking platform, which will also provide the S04 fans with some real benefits. The global family business, based in Cologne, will be on Schalke’s warm-up and training kits for the next three years.

This means that the Schalke fans can more easily book overnight stays for away trips and also benefit from certain privileges. As a registered member in the myHRS Club, fans can take advantage of exclusive prices and offers in accordance with this partnership.

HRS will be on the training gear for the start of pre-season on 22nd June, as well as for the performance tests shortly beforehand. Frank Kramer’s players will also have HRS on their warm-up and training kit for the upcoming friendlies and ready for the new competitive games.

Dr. Bernd Schröder, Schalke CEO, commented on the new partnership: “We’re pleased to be able to welcome HRS as a new partner for Schalke 04. The well-known hotel booking site will not only be on our training and warm-up kits as a sponsor, but will also offer our fans some real benefits. Our supporters can book overnight stays quickly and more easily in the cities where we are playing thanks to HRS now.”

Schröder continued: “The decision to have a different sponsor on our training kit and on the front of our shirts has seen us take a new, precedent-setting step in German football. HRS will not only be prominently displayed during every training session, but also during our warm-up on every matchday. Together, we will be able to generate an enormous reach and be able to shape the future. I’m looking forward to a successful partnership.”

One of the three largest hotel booking sites in Europe

HRS CEO Tobias Ragge is also eagerly looking forward to this shared future. His father, Robert Ragge, the founder of HRS, was born in Gelsenkirchen. Tobias is therefore also a long-time Schalke fan and feels a close emotional connection to the club. “As a little boy I went to the stadium with my father,” he said. “When I think of Schalke 04, I think of words like family, home, and sporting success, as one of the biggest clubs in Germany. I also think Schalke represents several business attributes such as a passion for work, authenticity and providing excellent service to a broad community. This partnership is something special to me.”

Thanks to his visionary approach and down-to-earth, hardworking nature, Tobias Ragge has built HRS – which was founded by his father in 1972 – into one of the three largest hotel booking sites in Europe, as well as a market-leading technology provider for accommodation, workspace and payment solutions for global corporations. The partnership between HRS and Schalke 04 will bring together two pioneering spirits from the travel industry and the football pitch. What a match!
