"The success of the 1976 UEFA European Championship fed the clamour for more places'Pinocchio' the UEFA Euro 80 Mascot at the final tournament, and UEFA responded by doubling the number of participants as the competition returned to Italy for a second time.

With eight teams now involved instead of four, the hopefuls were divided into two groups, from which the winners were to advance directly to the final. In another change to procedure, one of those eight places went automatically to Vincenzo Bearzot's hosts, but without suspended striker Paolo Rossi they faced an uphill struggle in a section also featuring England, Belgium and Spain."

Panini Euro 80 Sticker Packet

1980 was the first year that Panini brought out a European Championship football sticker album. The Panini Europa 80 Sticker album followed on the heels of success for Panini in 70, 74 and 78 with their World Cup collections and also on 3 years of the Panini Football Sticker Albums. It appears very similar to the early World Cup albums, with the first page looking at the album contents, and a European map showing all the tournament competitors. The Europa 80 album then looks back to 1960 when the first championship was played, and shows a couple of stickers from each year - one for  the winning team and a second for a key player in those finals. The tournament Programme page also features 5 stickers - the trophy, logo and mascot sticker among them, the facing page is stickers of the cities and stadiums hosting the 1980 European Championships.

Panini Euro 1980 Sticker Back No.1Germany (Deutschland-BRD) are the first national team's football stickers that we come to, as they are hosting. Each team gets a shiny badge sticker, a two part team photo sticker and 12 squad football sticker plus the manager. These are each laid out on a small individual backdrop which contains the vital stats for that player. Most teams also get a third page with an additional 7 players.

The rear of the album contains several pages of what it calls "excluded nations", those national teams that failed to qualify for the finals. These are arranged two to a page, with the badge shiny, team photo and just four or five player football stickers.
