Schalke begins the Bundesliga campaign on a high. The Royal Blues, led by young coaching phenom Domenico Tedesco, jumped from 10th place in 2016/17 to second in 2017/18, and will return to Champions League play.
The new season also brings a new kit supplier. The debut Umbro third jersey is neon green with navy accents. Umbro's double diamond pattern is on the cuffs. On the back is the club motto "Wir leben dich", "We live (for) you."
