Schalke To Wear Special Message Instead of Sponsor

Schalke 04 are promoting a special anti-discrimination campaign today in the Bundesliga against Wolfsburg. For their cause, the club will display a special message on their match kits and warm-up shirts.

Schalke Wear Anti-Discrimination Message

Schalke's main shirt sponsor,, have agreed to free up their adverstising space for Schalke's special message, which reads '#STEHTAUF' (Stand up!). Furthermore, the training kit partner, HRS, also agreed to free up space for warm-up shirts.

This message is supposed to call people to action when it comes to fighting against racism and discrimination. Schalke's values mean they stand for tolerance and respect.

Schalke's home kit remains unchanged apart from the chest sponsor, while the warm-up shirt is new, being based on Adidas' Tiro 23 Competition Match jersey.

After the match against Wolfsburg, the matchworn kits will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to Schalke's charity organisation, Schalke hilft!.
