1966 World Cup Ball
White & Red Cow Leather
This ball was a collaboration with Patterns of Play. It was made to commemorate the 1966 world cup. The last year England won the tournament.
Each panel represents a different game that was played. Every goal scored is represented as an etched dot in the corresponding location on the pitch where the ball was kicked from. 32 games were played, and there are 32 panels on the ball.
The panels were stitched to the ball in order of the games that were played. The first panel being indicated by the ball bladder valve, then spiraling around clockwise, until the final red panel.
If you know how to read the ball, the entire tournament is documented within it.
