FC Schalke 04 passionate fan base is the fourth-largest in Europe and the team from Gelsenkirchen have a rich history in the top flight of German football.
At the end of the 2019/20 season, the club were keen to promote their new kit offerings for the following year however. the Covid-19 pandemic meant gathering players together for a normal photo-shoot was not going to happen. In unison with kit sponsors Umbro, Schalke's marketing team reached out to UK-based sports artist, SPARKIUS to commission an original artwork that would combine the new 2021 kit offering with the rich footballing history and working-class passion of the club's supporters.
Once completed, the artwork received positive feedback from Schalke fans and was displayed on a series of billboards around the city of Gelsenkirchen and inside the club's famous Veltins Arena.
