What could be more exciting than many of the world’s top male models posing for VMan? It just may be all of them getting together getting for tomorrow’s Male Model World Cup sponsored by the mag. Some top faces scheduled to kick off the event: Mathias Lauridsen, Simon Nessman, Danny Schwarz,Â Oraine Barrett and many more (see full list below). We chatted with VMan editor Jacob Brown and found out the inspiration.
“I came up with this idea actually at Mathias Lauridsenâ€™s birthday dinner. He was telling me about the league soccer he plays, and how so many of the guys are also very serious soccer playersâ€”a lot of them are from Europe and have played all their lives. One of us made a joke like, â€œOh wouldnâ€™t it be funny if there was a big tournament where all the models competed.â€ And then I realized that it would actually be a perfect event for VMAN to host. So Mathias and I started putting it together. Heâ€™s sort of the chairman of the tournament and has helped get the players together with the agencies. And Hummel, which is an athletic gear company from his home country of Denmark, hooked us up with uniforms and everything. We are shooting the tournament tomorrow of course, and we will be running photos of the winning team in the next VMAN. Stephen Gan and I are really excited about this tournament and plan on making the Male Model World Cup a yearly event!
Gorgeous, athletic and sweaty men… Doesn’t get better than that.
