  • The Veltins-arena is a modern and functional stadium which has not the big appeal. Of course, the mood at the Squire is always above average and sing sang song before playing you can clearly feel that it is in a traditional football region. Too bad that the arena only rudimentary transported this tradition.

  • The best and most beautiful Stadium Stella all over the world. To be on Schalke is away from home. Nice win against Berlin with great choreography and a fantastic atmosphere.
