Now it is official: The FC Schalke 04 has found a new main sponsor as expected in the housing company Vivawest. The contract was confirmed on Saturday morning.
The second division had worked with high pressure in the past few hours and days, climbing the deal with the regional residential provider – with success.
“We are very grateful to Vivawest that the company stands out quickly and easily in challenging times,” said Schalke’s board boss. Bernd Schröder: “After the termination of our partnership with Gazprom, which is announced this week, we have succeeded in progressing the necessary realignment of Schalke 04 quickly. The talks with vivo test were characterized by great appreciation and a common value base. With this partnership begins on Schalke New time. “
As speculates already in advance, Gelsenkirchen has apparently approved significant intake failures in order to bring cooperation with viva test on the road.
Only a few days ago, FC Schalke had officially ended the business relationship with the main main sponsor, Russian Energy Giant Gazprom.
Since then, the Gazprom imprint has disappeared from all jerseys and all training clothes. However, press spokesman Marc Siekmann explained on Thursday, it will need some time until the inscriptions are actually removed anywhere on the club grounds of FC Schalke.

Vivawest should cost the commitment to the royal blue per year around 4.5 million euros. This is just half of the previous Gazprom deal.
Nevertheless, both the club leadership and the housing companying department as well as the followers of the FC Schalke had announced, full and completely behind the reorientation of the club.
Torjäger and leaders Simon Terodde had even declared “very proud” to be the decision of the association to have broken with the Russian group.
