Two friendly matches in the space of three days is the main show for Schalke‘s second-ever trip to China for pre-season preparations.
As is the case for each Bundesliga club on the Bundesliga World Tour, being in Asia goes far beyond the friendly matches, though. The first-team squad will engage with fans off the pitch with autograph sessions, meet-and-greet events and more in order to give the fans in China a total experience, beyond watching their favourite stars do what they do best during 90 minutes on the pitch.
Watch: Schalke players attempt the chopstick challenge on their last trip to China!
