Event name: Borussia Dortmund vs. Schalke

Date: MAY 16 Saturday 2021

The Revie derby (pronounced [ʁeˈviːɐ̯ˌdaːɐ̯biː]) is the name given to any association football match between two clubs in the Ruhr region – also known in German as the Revier, a contraction of Bergbaurevier (mining area) – in North Rhine-Westphalia, but almost always refers to the derby between FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund.

A local derby between other Ruhr teams (for example VfL Bochum, MSV Duisburg, or Rot-Weiss Essen) is often called a kleines Revierderby (minor Revier derby).


1925–1936 (The Beginning)
The rivalry began with a 4–2 Schalke victory on 3 May 1925. Schalke’s style of play at the time was described by a newspaper of the era as a “wandering ball from man to man” in a series of short, flat passes.[1]. The Schalker Kreisel (literally: “Schalke spinning top”) was born. Schalke won all three matches played in the years 1925–1927. The two teams did not meet again until the creation of the Gauliga in 1936.
