    Schalke are the third most successful club in German football, they were Bundesliga runners-up to Bayern Munich in 2017-18, and Champions League semi finalists against Manchester United in the 2010-11 season.

    Yet, right now, Die Königsblauen look destined for Bundesliga relegation, they are on a 26 games winless streak, and they are in serious danger of financial collapse. So in today's video, HITC Sevens takes a look at the many crises facing Schalke 04, on the pitch and in the boardroom, and what the future might hold for the seven-time German champions.

The worst thing is that Schalke's relegation will have an impact on the economy of Gelsenkirchen and the even worse thing is that WE ALREADY ARE THE POOREST CITY IN GERMANY!

That's sadly the case, unfortunately. With coal mines long closed in the Ruhrgebiet, Gelsenkirchen rely a lot on S04 for financial survival. Unless Schalke return back to the Bundesliga swiftly, the future of Gelsenkirchen is in doubt.

I’m not a Schalke 04 fan but I feel sorry for a team that was competing with the likes of Bayern munchin, Dortmund and bayer Leverkusen 2010s still now facing team in 2nd division Bundesliga hope they bounce back but time will tell if the management is smart to invest in youth and experience players who play for the club and fight for the club not just players who play for the money

Adolf H. and his mates hated Schalke's guts. They were very displeased about this club being partially formed by plenty of Polish players who manned its ranks for years and years to come. The NS gang tended to even call Schalke "Polakenklub" for it, and it wasn't meant as a compliment.

Schalke 04 are very popular with football gamblers, at the moment – just bet on their opponents to win. Loving these ‘What on Earth is Going on at...’ videos; Palermo, Marseille and now Schalke. Very well researched, information-packed and articulately delivered with interesting, informative and varied visuals. Top work.

I know this has really nothing to do with the on pitch stuff, I really hope S04 comeback simply for the security of their S04 esports team and players. The League of Legends team has done an amazing job of promoting talent and giving back to it's German roots and fans. It would be sad to see them go if S04 has to sell the LEC spot, which could get them an added €30 million. They've been a good staple in the EU LOL scene since they entered.

I know English FA would never introduce a similar German league model of clubs being 50/1 ownership or strict player wage cap but I personally believe for the good of English grass roots football they should,if nothing else during this COVID period it’s shown the true football qualities of all EPL clubs,lack of big transfers was so needed in English football as clubs look towards youth and alternative leagues.as a WHU supporter I’ve never been impressed by cheap gloss of BIG money and much prefer consistent quality with steady growth and club tradition.relegation is not the end but a chance to rid the constraints of big money,big business,corrupt business people with little knowledge or love for club and the people’s game,when the promise of riches are gone let’s hope the greedy parasites will leave too.⚒COYI #GSBOUT

This video is very accurate as far as I can tell. Just one thing you left out is that Schalke has a history of being a fighting team whose players were running and fighting for every ball untill the game is over. And that was all the fans were expecting from them - even more than actually winning the match. That mentality got lost when they became more successfull on european level and had to include more technically skilled players rather than those who were mostly using their physical abilities. That worked for a while, but after they lost their best players to transfers and weren't able to replace them adequatly they got more and more into trouble. Now they end up having players with some technical skills, but not enough to be top level, who at the same time aren't able to forfill that expectation of running and fighting all game every game and due to their financial situation they don't have the money to change that fact.

As an Aston Villa fan I can relate to Schalke. Two clubs stooped in history, from economically deprived areas and with great stadiums that fell off out of nowhere.In 2016, we won just 3 league games and were relegated for the first time, and were on the brink of bankruptcy 2 years later after corrupt ownership leading to failure to pay wages and massive debts. We were bought out and got promoted in 2019, and are now rebuilding towards our previous success. Don’t give up hope, I hope Schalke will follow the same route my own team did and that we both get back to the positions towards the top of the league where we belong.

As someone who each year supports 17 different teams in Germany, I have always had particular sympathies towards Schalke and Dortmund. Unfortunately relegation has become inevitable for Schalke this season because they would need about 6 quality new signings to turn things around sufficiently to gather enough points to survive the drop, and it is clear that money won't be available. A quick return is also not likely as evidenced by Hamburg's failed efforts for longer than initially expected because the 2nd Bundesliga is a very competitive league. Based on this insightful report you'd have to think that the supporters base will have to relent and sell almost half the club to commercial interests, although that would now be at a heavily discounted price.

I don't see the fact that the club is owned 100% by the fans as a disadvantage. Yes, you may not get big investments from corporations or individual investors but at the end of the day it is a football club, and most investors treat their investment as a business and not a sports team. We have seen some successes in the past by the like of PSG and Man City, but we have also seen the decline of football clubs (some legendary) like Valencia, Arsenal, Malaga, AC Milan, and many more who have struggled after their purchase because the new owner's priorities are not sporting success but are concentrated on financial success (sometimes not even for the club, just themselves). At the end of the day, the issues with Shalke did not start or are a cause of the way the club is owned.
