1000 Friends Wall

The VELTINS-Arena – a place where the incredible matchday atmosphere meets architectural genius. With its movable grass pitch, its giant four-sided video screen and its retractable roof, not only is it one of Europe’s most modern stadiums, but also the living room for Schalke fans. The emotions which the 62,000 plus spectators inside the ground go through during the Royal Blues’ home games make Gelsenkirchen’s temple a place with a truly unique atmosphere.

Supporters have a unique opportunity to become a part of this incredible venue: every Schalke fan can have their name engraved into the Tausend-Freunde-Mauer (wall of a thousand friends) by purchasing one of the Arena’s building bricks.

A purchase of a building block for €260 acts as an interest-free loan payment for which the buyer will receive their money back in the form of ten €25 shop vouchers over the course of ten years which can be spent in the shop to the heart’s desire, along with a welcome pack. In addition, all buyers will be sent a document, certifying them as an official sponsor of the arena.

To round it off, the package will come with an official VELTINS-Arena coin, reserved exclusively for all those who have their name engraved into the Tausend-Freunde-Mauer (wall of a thousand friends).

How do I get an Arena building brick?

A fax to +49 209 | 3618-599 or an email to bausteine@schalke04.de (please include full address!) is all you need. The forms will then be sent to you by mail.

The signed contract should then be sent to FC Gelsenkirchen Schalke 04, AMG/Kundenservice, Ernst Kuzorra-Weg 1, 45891 Gelsenkirchen. In addition, the €260 for the brick (including the welcome pack) must be paid into the account (see details below).

The documents will be sent as soon as possible upon receipt of payment.

The completion of the brick board with the engraved handwriting can take up to six months. Every customer will be notified with confirmation of installation.

How do I get a building brick coin?

This is how: simply transfer €5 and include the contract number and your name in the payment reference. The coin will be sent automatically upon receipt of payment.
