An Unexpected Promotion: eSports and Football

Since May 2016 Tim Reichert is Head of eSports at FC Schalke 04. As an eSports pioneer he founded the famous Clan SK-Gaming with his brothers Ralf and Benjamin in 1997. He was also a professional football player at Rot-Weiss Oberhausen for a few years and therefore he does have insights about structures and characteristics of a football organization. Because of that it was a logical move for him to step in the position at Schalke 04.
