FC Schalke 04 was founded in 1904 in the street Schalke in Gelsenkirchen. The relegation in the season of 2021-22 was a real setback for Schalke 04, but the club got already promoted the year after and have returned to the Bundesliga – where Die Königsblauwen belong! Schalke 04 is the second biggest sports association in Germany and has 155.000 members. Despite of this impressive number, the club relegated to 2. Bundesliga in the season of 2021-22 because of mismanagement. The first time this happened was in 1991.
It all started in the season of 2018-19: Schalke ended up on the fourteenth place in the Bundesliga for the first time in eleven years; not a good result of the club from Gelsenkirchen. This appeared to be the beginning of an end: after a disappointing season, Schalke 04 relegated to 2. Bundesliga in the season of 2021-2022. The club was financially stuck after years of mismanagement. Coach Dimitrios Grammozis had to face the battle with few financial recources and had to fight its way back up anyway. Many players did not have another choice than to leave the club because of this.
Dimitrios Grammozis got fired as coach of Schalke at the start of March, 2022. The club was on the eighth place in the rankings of the 2. Bundesliga and did not expect a promotion any time soon. Mike Büskens became interim coach and managed to get the club to the upper regions of 2. Bundesliga that same season. The club got even assured that they’d play in the championship of the 2. Bundesliga on the eighth of May, 2022 and they got promoted to the Bundesliga after having played only one year in 2. Bundesliga.
