Not sure who to support in the Bundesliga? Here’s 10 reasons you should choose Schalke

We start with No. 10

10. It’s Coming

You can’t keep a top club down for long. Unfortunately, Schalke has had a hard time establishing consistency in keeping up near the top of the Bundesliga table or in challenging for Europa or Champions League places. But these days things are different, and with a reliable manager like David Wagner in charge of a foundation of young, talented players, the return to consistent glory is coming soon for Schalke.

Sure, you could wait around for the bandwagon to leave the station and jump on board when they’ve started challenging on an international level, or you could start getting to know the club now as a treasured addition to the Knappen fanbase and when the titles do come, you can be one of those fans that joined up “before it was cool.”

It’s just a matter of time. The Royal Blues have always been a top-tier club and the roots have been planted for a return to the top where they belong. So join the Royal Blues now and brag about it later. Remember—it’s always fun to say that you liked something before everyone else did.

No. 9 is next.
