In 2017, the trustful and strong partnership between GAZPROM and Bundesliga team FC Schalke 04 has had its 10th anniversary. Being famous for their hard-working coal mining history, the seven-time German champions and five-time DFB cup winners are the ideal partner for the Russian company. Not only because of the unequalled fanbase but also because of their location in the Ruhr area, the “heart of Germany“.

In recent years, GAZPROM and Schalke have promoted many joint activities. Always at the centre of attention: The amazing fans of the “Royal Blues“ who constantly support their team with a loud voice – at home in the Arena or in the away stand.
