Slazenger 1966 World Cup special edition match ball


A real talking point, as well as useful thing should you fancy an impromptu kickabout – the Slazenger 1966 World Cup special edition match ball.

You may or may not know that Slazenger produced the ball used in England’s ’66 World Cup triumph and this is a replica of that very same ball. No boffins worked on this particular piece of kit, this is a genuine hand stitched leather ball made up of 25 panels. But it is said to be a little lighter than the original (currently housed in the National Football Museum, wherever that happens to be this week).

Limited edition as you might expect, it sells for £19.66.
