Fußball-Club Gelsenkirchen-Schalke 04, commonly known simply as FC Schalke 04 or Schalke, is a German club originally from the Schalke district of Gelsenkirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia. Schalke has long been one of the most popular football teams in Germany, even though major successes have been rare since the club's heyday in the 1930s and early 1940s. The club was founded on 4 May 1904 as Westfalia Schalke by a group of high school students and first wore red and yellow. In 1924 the club took the name FC Schalke 04 and adopted the now familiar blue and white colours. Schalke 04 won its first major European trophy in 1997 by defeating Internazionale on penalty kicks for the UEFA Cup in Milan.
