Gelsenkirchen. Whether relegation or relegation: © www.de24.news The  FC Schalke 04 is facing a violent upheaval.

Sports director Jochen Schneider is the FC Schalke 04 leave, most of the players probably also because they are either only loaned out or have contracts without validity for the second division.

FC Schalke 04: Umbro leaves S04 – Royal Blue needs a new supplier

Well, just a few days before the 158th Revier derby, Marketing Director Alexander Jobst announces the next breakup hammer: © www.de24.news The  contract with Umbro will be terminated early in the summer of 2022.

In 2018, the English sportswear label became the successor to Adidas, which supplied FC Schalke 04 for many years.

However, the five-year contract signed at the time will not be fulfilled. Regardless of the league affiliation, Schalke and Umbro agreed to terminate the contract early in the summer of 2022. Jobst said on Thursday evening.

Jobst: “Expectations not met on both sides”

“Both our and Umbro’s expectations were not met,” said the marketing boss at “Schalke TV”. “In terms of sport, we didn’t have the success we wanted, which was also reflected in the merchandising. At the same time, we expected Umbro to be much more active in retail and to position itself as the flagship with Schalke. “

That could mean considerable financial losses for the S04. Umbro gave six million euros a year. It can be doubted that Schalke can negotiate a similarly lucrative contract with a new supplier, especially in the event of relegation.
