GELSENKIRCHEN, GERMANY (Nov. 27, 2018) – Legendary German soccer team FC Schalke 04 has announced that it will bring their partnership with Kick It 3v3, the largest grassroots soccer tournament tour in the US, to the next level with a series of events in Atlanta over the Dec. 15-16 weekend including youth soccer clinics, mascot tours and contests.

Schalke is one of the most popular teams in Europe with a passionate fan base that spans the world. Schalke’s famous “Knappenschmiede” youth academy has produced a flowing stream of world-class players throughout Europe, including American star Weston McKennie who plays for Schalke and the US National Team. Schalke coaches will travel to Atlanta to oversee two youth soccer clinics during the Kick It 3v3 competition on Dec. 15-16.

The Schalke clinics will run on Saturday, Dec. 15 from 12:40pm-1:40pm ET, and on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 11:10am-12:10pm ET at LakePoint Sports Complex in Emerson. Both clinics will take place during breaks in the Kick It 3v3 tournament taking place at the field over the weekend. Registration is open now at www.3v3soccer.com.

“With one of Schalke’s main focuses being youth development, this upcoming Kick It 3v3 tournament in Atlanta is our first foray into scouting new and promising talent at this level in America,” said Alexander Jobst, Member of the Managing Board for FC Schalke 04. “We’re excited about taking this step with Kick It to bring the power and tradition of Schalke to Atlanta.”

"Our global partnership with FC Schalke 04 continues to drive unique, innovative experiences for soccer players and communities across the country,” said Matt Novogratz, CEO of Kick It. “With a strong tradition for producing great young talent, we are thrilled to unite the soccer players of Atlanta with the world-renowned coaches of Schalke for a 3v3 showcase at LakePoint.”

“I remember those fun weekends playing in Kick It tournaments as a kid in Dallas,” said Weston McKennie, Schalke midfielder and US Men’s National Team star. “Small sided games are such a cool way to develop skills and have a blast with your friends. I’m excited that Schalke will be a big part of Kick It in America.”

One lucky Kick It youth team will win a VIP trip to Gelsenkirchen, Germany, for a behind-the-scenes tour and tickets to watch a Schalke home match at the famous VELTINS-Arena. The Schalke coaches will look to identify a winning Kick It 3v3 team that best represents the values of Schalke such as: Confidence, helpful, supportive, strong character, focused, fair, honest and passionate.

All participants in the Kick It tournament will receive a free Schalke-themed jersey. In addition, Umbro is creating a special “Boot Room” where players can sample the latest styles in cutting-edge soccer footwear. Schalke’s loveable mascot, Erwin, will also be at the LakePoint Sports Complex for photo opps throughout weekend. He will also be seen around Atlanta over the weekend visiting iconic locations and scouting out the other local professional mascots.
