Schalke 04 unveiled their 2016/18 home jersey by adidas this week. The new look is simple, classy, and includes a new font for the player numbers. The design is made to be worn on and off the field.
S04 will debut the new look on the pitch May 7th against FC Augsburg in the team’s last home Bundesliga match of the season .
“We want to contribute to the Royal Blue lifestyle with our new kit,” Schalke 04 Director of Marketing, Alexander Jobst, said at th reveal. “Our fans can wear it not only in the stadium or on the football pitch, but also at the bar in the evening. Many have been doing so already, but now more S04 fans will sport our new home kit in their day-to-day life.”
The jersey is royal blue with white and navy blue details. The modern v-neck collar is navy with ‘Wir leben dich (We live you)’ inside at the back of the collar. The shirt has a navy/white sleeve cuff.
The adidas logo is over the right chest while the classic 3-Stripes run down the side of the jersey from under the arm to the waist. This replaces the thick single white stripe from this season’s current jersey.
The back of the shirt has a royal blue and white stripe on the collar, with a couple special messages on the trim. Also present is an updated number font.
White shorts with blue trim and blue socks with navy and white trim rounds off the kit for Schalke 04. Gazprom retains primary sponsor spot at the front of the shirt.
