FC Schalke 04 II are the reserve team of German association football club FC Schalke 04. Until 2005 the team played as FC Schalke 04 Amateure.

The team has qualified for the first round of the DFB-Pokal, the German Cup, on two occasions. They currently play in the tier four Regionalliga West.


The team first made an appearance in the highest football league in Westphalia when it won promotion to the tier three Verbandsliga Westfalen in 1964 but was relegated again in 1966. It made a return to the league in 1978 when the Oberliga Westfalen was established as the tier above the Verbandsliga but was once more relegated in 1980. It returned to the league for a third time in 1986 and played there until 1992 when a division championship took the team up to the Oberliga Westfalen.[1]

The team played for three seasons against relegation in the Oberliga until 1995, when it dropped back to the Verbandsliga. It returned to the Oberliga again in 1997, now as a much stronger side. A league championship in the Oberliga earned the club promotion to the Regionalliga Nord in 2003 but it was relegated again immediately. Four more Oberliga seasons followed until 2008 when the team qualified for the new Regionalliga West where it has played since.[2][3]

The team has played in the DFB-Pokal twice, qualifying for the first round in 1994–95 and 2001–02, going out to VfL Wolfsburg in 1994 and VfL Bochum in 2001.[4][5]
