THOSE excited by Everton’s new 12 Shades of Blue calendar take note.
A launch event is taking place at Everton Two, Liverpool One, from 5pm next Thursday featuring several (fully-clothed) members of the first team who will sign copies of the calendar.
The £10 calendar reveals some of the Blues’ players, such as Sylvain Distin, Tim Howard, and Kevin Mirallas, flaunting their honed physiques to raise money for Everton in the Community. The club’s official Twitter page revealed the calendar news last week and shortly after the hashtag #12shadesofblue was trending in the UK.
Everton are also stocking two other calendars for 2013: a personalised calendar, £20, which features fans’ names merged amongst the first team squad and the classic Everton calendar, £8, featuring the club’s star players.
