Stade de Reims Retro: The golden age of the “Rouge & Blanc”
‘SDRetro’ is an English-French bilingual online Magazine, which talks about the Stade de Reims football team of the 1950 & 60s. It shows its ‘popularity’ around the world of football. The aim of “Stade de Reims Retro” is to communicate its passion for football within its city, which started just after the second world war (called the golden age); to educate and encourage social interactions between generations; and finally to encourage foreign visitors to (re)discover “Champagne football”!
A book is currently written by Jean-Christophe Potin – who already created ‘SDRetro’ – about the world Tours of the “Rouge et Blanc” of this era, with the participation of its old French football legends: Roger Piantoni, Just Fontaine & Raymond Kopa.
As part of the project, ‘SDRetro’ is also going to produce short “cartoon videos”, which recreate a special event (e.g. the best goal ever scored for Reims by Just Fontaine)… Something that the television could not capture at its humble beginning…
