FC SCHALKE 04 eSports UNCOVERED.
Schalke have bought the seed and the rooster of team Elements in EU LCS Summer 2016 which they announced on 16 May 2016. Schalke is actually an esports department of the football club that was created back in 04 May 1904.
FC SCHALKE 04 esports had turbulent years where not everything was clear in the water, but hey have evolved from 2016 and matured into a solid team. In 2017 they have won 18,000 EUROS at the EUCS 2017 Spring Playoffs and Summer playoffs, thus engraving their names in the League of Legends Esports league.
In 2017 they have managed to get a coach Mitch “Boris” Voorspoels , who helped them secure the second place in EU LCS 2018 summer playoffs and won 50,000 euro.
They have dropped down to the Challenger Series after their LCS debut, but we can say that Schalke are the underdogs. As they almost reached worlds in 2018, this year might be their year as they are ready to grow double in 2019 and might actually win the “LEC”.
The history they have under their belt is quite amazing as they have achieved a lot of success in such a short time. They are the first European team to go undefeated for an entire Challenger Series season.
In 23 November 2018 they have signed a contract with their new head coach Dylan Falco.

He managed to help the team Immortals win NA LCS 2016 Spring PlayOffs in third place (prize winnings being 15,000$), and then in the Summer Playoffs the team helped Immortals reach third place again (15,000$). He also helped Immortals reach IEM season 11 Gyeonggi in third place (!10.000 winnings) and he worked there till November 2016.
Even with all this success, team Immortals didn’t renew Dylan’s contract. Lucky for Dylan Flaco, he found team EnVyUs in January 2017 till May 2017 and his career reached new heights when he got an offer to be a coach at Fnatic.
