Wow.

The creators of the 2018 Dieux du Stade calendar (which translates as ‘Gods of the Stadium’) have released a sneak peak of the new edition.

Next year’s outing features a total of 21 fine French sportsmen, spanning the worlds of rugby, handball, volleyball swimming.

Meanwhile, the bum-tastic behind-the-scenes preview video below offers further insight into how the calendar was made.

This year, Errikos Andreou’s shoot boasts a retro disco theme, with glitter balls standing in for rugby balls. It is also a rare foray into color for the calendar.

Since its inception in 2001, the Dieux du Stade aesthetic – spanning calendars, books and DVDs – has favoured a brooding black and white palatte.

This year, part of the profits will once again go to the ‘Breast Cancer, Let’s Talk About It!‘ association.

‘I’d like to do our utmost to help them fight this horrible disease’

Djibril Camara winger of Stade Français commented. ‘I have sisters, and if they had this disease, I’d like to do our utmost to help them fight this horrible disease.’
