NUFC In Schalke 04 Cup Action

NUFC In Schalke 04 Cup Action

Today sees the start of the Schalke 04 Cup.

A four-team tournament which will become a yearly fixture sees us, Malaga, West Ham and hosts Schalke compete for the Schale 04 Cup

We start against Malaga at the Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen in just over an hour with a 2:30pm kick off.

West Ham facing Schalke at quarter to 5.

The fixtures are reversed tomorrow although both English sides don;t face each other.

West Ham playing Malaga in the early 2:30 slot and us ending with Schalke at the quarter to 5 one.

If matches are drawn then it goes straight to penalties, no extra time.

The scoring system to decide the winners is slightly complicated with a point for a draw, 2 extra if you win on penalties, although it's the usual 3 for a win.

Obviously, the team with the most points over the weekend gets the Schalke 04 Cup.
