Schalke might have the oldest fan club in world football [Video]

One of the best supported clubs in Germany, Schalke can boast that they have fans who are both young and old – and possibly some who are the oldest fans of any team in the world.

This Bundesliga special looks at Schalke’s “Wohl Auf – Blau & Weiss” fan club from the “Johanniter-Stift Gelsenkirchen” retirement home, a group which might be the oldest of its kind.

These pensioners have been watching The Miners since the forties and decided to set up a fan club when they weren’t common.

Hear their story in the video above.
