The Werkself look back at a successful season. The recently ended 2021/22 campaign brought a number of changes: Head coach Gerardo Seoane completed his first season, the stands at the BayArena finally welcomed back crowds and Werkself legend Rudi Völler moved over to make way for the next generation.

Walking Football

Walking Football is a form of the game comes from England where you are not allowed to run, to slide in or play the ball over waist height. What sounds odd at first sight is in reality a very interesting and entertaining form of football. Above all for the more mature female and male players this gentle form of the game has a high added value.


Walking Football
  • Training is on Wednesdays from 10.30 to noon, in the summer at the Kurt Rieß facility and in the winter at LIGA '20.
  • Training is led by two qualified coaches.
  • How to play football is not necessary.
  • Women and men are warmly welcome.
  • Participation in national and international tournaments.
  • Regular games against amateur and Bundesliga clubs.
  • If interested, contact us via email to info@bayer04.de or by phone on 0214 5000 1904.
  • The lads from Sportskanone, a multimedia student initiative, visited the training in December 2021. As a result, they produced a report that shows Walking Football at Bayer 04 really well. You can see the report HERE.

Your ambassador – Jürgen Gelsdorf

Silberlöwen-Botschafter Jürgen Gelsdorf

Hello Silver Lions,

I am happy to step up as your ambassador. After my previous roles at Bayer 04 as a player, coach and head of the Performance Centre, being a Silver Lion ambassador is completely different again. I see it as a sign of great appreciation that I was asked. I didn't hesitate to say yes.

With the offer of the Silver Lions, the Bayer 04 Club have come up with a great idea. I'm particularly looking forward to meeting long-standing fans. We will definitely meet each other at one of the Silver Lion events. Until then I wish you lots of fun and success with our Werkself.

Best regards
Jürgen ‘Gelle’ Gelsdorf
