Schalke Launch Anti-racist Campaign26 October 2002

As part of Action Week, the Schalker Fan initiative organised a meeting with team manager Frank Neubarth and three players: Oude Kamphuis from Holland, Aníbal Samuel Matellán from Argentina and Gerald Asamoah of Germany. They later organised a joint press conference with the migrant organisation Forum Afrika.

During the match versus 1. FC Nuremberg, stickers with the team from Schalke 04 and anti-racist messages were handed out. Forum Afrika presented a banner in the stadium “AufSchalke” displaying “The Ball doesn’t mind who is heading him”. The event got excellent media coverage on German TV (WDR) and in the major regional news papers. The official web-site of Schalke O4 also covered the event.
