Schalke play in the Bundesliga , the top tier of the German football league system. As of June , the club has , members, making it the second-largest sports club in Germany  and the fourth-largest sports club in the world in terms of membership.
Schalke also succeeded as the first German club to win a cup double in Schalke holds a long-standing rivalry with Ruhr neighbours Borussia Dortmund , arguably one of the most widespread and well-known rivalries in German football, and matches between the two teams are referred to as the Revierderby.
The club was founded on 4 May as Westfalia Schalke by a group of high school students and first wore the colours red and yellow.
The team was unable to gain admittance to the Westdeutscher Spielverband and played in one of the "wild associations" of early German football.
In , after years of failed attempts to join the official league, they merged with the gymnastic club Schalker Turnverein in order to facilitate their entry.
This arrangement held up until , when SV Westfalia Schalke was re-established as an independent club. The separation proved short-lived and the two came together again in as Turn- und Sportverein Schalke The new club won its first honours in as champions of the Schalke Kreisliga.
It was around this time that Schalke picked up the nickname Die Knappen , from an old German word for "miners" because the team drew so many of its players and supporters from the coalmine workers of Gelsenkirchen.
In , the football team parted ways with the gymnasts again, this time taking the club chairman along with them. The following year, the club became the dominant local side, based on a style of play that used short, sharp, man-to-man passing to move the ball.
This system would later become famous as the Schalker Kreisel English: In , it carried them into the top-flight Gauliga Ruhr , onto the league championship, and then into the opening rounds of the national finals.
They won their first West German championship in , but the following year were sanctioned for exceeding salary levels set by the league and, in an era that considered professionalism in sport to be anathema, found themselves banned from play for nearly half a year.
With the re-organisation of German football in under Nazi Germany , Schalke found themselves in the Gauliga Westfalen , 1 of 16 top-flight divisions established to replace the innumerable regional and local leagues, all claiming top status.
The next year , they successfully defended their title against VfB Stuttgart with a 6—4 win. The club missed the final, but would make appearances in the championship match in each of the next six years, coming away victorious in , , and They lost the inaugural Tschammerpokal 0—2 to 1.
Over a dozen seasons, from to , Schalke won of Gauliga matches, drawing 21 and losing only 6. Within this period, they scored goals and conceded just From to , they did not lose a single league match.
They resumed regular play following the war and, for a time, continued to compete as a strong side. They set a record in a national championship round match with a 20—0 drubbing of SpVgg Herten , but that spoke more to the weakened condition of German football than the ability of the team.
Within two years, they slipped to 12th place. It would take Schalke until the mids to recover their form. They finished third in a tight three-way race for the Oberliga West title, decided on the last day of the season.
The strong fanbase of the club is as well documented in a local church, St. It was renovated shortly after the victory, where one of the glass windows shows Aloysius Gonzaga with a football and the dress and colors of Schalke.
Those results earned them selection as 1 of 16 clubs admitted to the top-flight league. Their first years in the Bundesliga were difficult.
In —65 , they escaped relegation only through the expansion of the league to 18 teams. A number of finishes at the lower end of the league table followed, before a marked improvement in —72 , culminating in a second-place finish to Bayern Munich and after having led the league for much of the season.
Despite their improved results, the seeds of a major reversal had already been sown. Investigation showed that Schalke had deliberately played to lose their 17 May, 28th-round match against Arminia Bielefeld , 0—1.
As a result, several Schalke players were banned for life, including three — Klaus Fischer , "Stan" Libuda and Klaus Fichtel — who regularly played for the West Germany national team at the time.
Even though the penalties were later commuted to bans ranging from six months to two years, the scandal had a profound effect on what might have possibly become one of the dominant German teams of the s.
In the early s, Die Knappen ran into trouble and found themselves relegated to the second division of the Bundesliga for the —82 season and, after promotion, again in — They returned to the top flight in but slipped once more to the second tier in They returned to the Bundesliga in the —92 season and have stayed in the top flight ever since.
Coached by the Dutch coach Huub Stevens , the Schalke squad earned the nickname "Euro Fighters", which is still in use among fans.
Stevens, who was widely unknown in Germany at the time, quickly earned himself a cult following among the Schalke supporters. Stevens successfully implemented a system of rigid discipline, especially in the defence.
The turn of the millennium has seen much stronger performances from Schalke. During the s and early , the club underwent a successful transformation into a modern, commercial sports organization and established itself as one of the dominant teams of the Bundesliga.
Schalke captured consecutive DFB-Pokals in —01 and —02 , and earned second-place finishes in the Bundesliga in —01 , —05 and — The last few years have been more successful for Schalke, who finished in the second place in , a result that led to Schalke making its second appearance in the UEFA Champions League.
There, Schalke finished in third place during the group stage and continuing into the UEFA Cup , where they were eliminated by the eventual winners Sevilla in the semi-finals.
In —06 , Schalke finished in fourth place in the Bundesliga and a year later they again finished as runners-up for the third time in seven seasons.
In the —08 season , Schalke progressed past the Champions League group stage for the first time and advanced to the quarter-finals after defeating Porto on penalties in the round of They were eliminated by Barcelona in the quarter-finals, losing both home and away matches 0—1.
On 13 April , the club announced the dismissal of manager Mirko Slomka after a heavy defeat at the hands of Werder Bremen and elimination from the Champions League.
For the —09 Bundesliga season , Schalke signed a new head coach, Fred Rutten , previously of Twente. Rutten signed a contract running until June On 16 March , Magath was sacked and replaced with Ralf Rangnick , who previously, between and , had a brief spell being in charge of the team.
Within just weeks of his appointment, Rangnick masterminded a 5—2 victory over Inter Milan at the San Siro during the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Schalke advanced to the semi-final where they lost 2—0 to Manchester United in the first leg and 4—1 in the second leg.
On 22 September , Ralf Rangnick announced his immediate resignation as head coach of Schalke 04 due to long-term exhaustion.
Although Schalke played a somewhat inconsistent season, they reached third place in the Bundesliga and therefore direct qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
Schalke had an excellent start to the —13 Bundesliga season , and worked their way to second place in the league by November, just behind Bayern Munich.
On 20 October, Schalke traveled to Borussia Dortmund for matchday 8, and were able to defeat the home side 2—1 to secure their first league Revierderby win since February while securing a Champions League place by finishing in fourth place.
Schalke ultimately finished the group stage in second place, behind Chelsea, and was eliminated in the round of 16 by Real Madrid. It also led to performance related discussions about head coach Jens Keller.
Partially, Schalke fielded up to ten young players with potential who played in the Schalke youth system throughout the season.
Among the brightest young player discoveries of the —14 season were Max Meyer and Leon Goretzka. The young Schalke squad won 11 out of 17 matches, totalling 36 points.
At the end of the —14 season, the club finished in third place in the Bundesliga table to qualify for their third-straight UEFA Champions League appearance, a feat Schalke had never before achieved.
On 7 October , after a 1—2 defeat to Hoffenheim and after amassing just eight points from seven matches, Keller was sacked and succeeded by Roberto Di Matteo.
