"The home of Jules Rimet, the father of the FIFA World Cup™, France finally claimed the crown for itself in the summer of 1998. If an unforgettable summer for the new champions – who had tasted semi-final defeat twice a decade before – it was also a memorable one for the old tournament which was now bigger than ever before.

'Juanito' the FIFA World Cup 70 MascotThe 16th FIFA World Cup comprised 32 teams for the first time. The greater number of qualifying places meant more opportunities for teams from Africa, Asia and CONCACAF – in this case, first-time qualifiers South Africa, Japan and Jamaica. The eight groups of four were spread out across France but the venue for the Opening Match and Final was the showpiece Stade de France just north of Paris. It was there that holders Brazil kicked off the tournament with a 2-1 victory over Scotland, achieved thanks to Tom Boyd's own goal."

Panini World Cup 70 Mexico Sticker Packet

The 1970 World Cup sticker album is the first ever collection to be produced by Panini, it is a far stretch from the style and presentation of the albums we've become used to in the modern era - this album is where it all began! The first thing you notice when looking at the Panini Mexico 70 World Cup Sticker Album is the size; it is virtually square, being only a few centimetres taller than it is wide. This is consistent with the first of the Panini Football League albums (Football 78, 79 and 80), which were also a more square shape.

Looking inside the cover we see the first page shows 5 individual stickers (1 whole and 4 halves), the Rimet Cup, Mexico Mascot, FIFA Logo, and two Mexico 70 Logos. The page also shows the 'History of the Rimet Cup', along with the contents of the album. The following 8 pages of the Panini Mexico 70 World Cup Sticker Album shows the historic winners of each of finals. Each nation shows a team photograph sticker and a badge logo for the team. The bottom of the page shows 3 players stickers - a selection of the most influential or exciting players from that year's finals.

Panini World Cup 70 Mexico Sticker Back ( the page is the Tournament Programme, with spaces to fill in the scores. After that the national teams begin. Mexico are first as the hosts, each team gets a pair of half stickers, a flag and a football badge. In later albums these would normally appear as 'shiny' or 'foil' stickers. The other stickers appearing on the first page are the team photo and manager, the first 3 of 13 squad football stickers. A further 2 pages present the remaining 10 player football stickers, with a section below listing the vital statistics of each one.

Some of the smaller footballing nations only receive a single double-spread, with only 11 stickers.
