Football on Great Britain Postage Stamps 1966 - 2017  
  Almost every country in the world has issued postage stamps featuring football at some time or another. Indeed, a quite substantial thematic collection  
  could be built-up simply concentrating on stamps dedicated to football, as they are one of the most popular and sought-after collecting topics.  
  This section concentrates on the stamps and other Philatelic material issued by Great Britain's Royal Mail since their first set of football related stamps  
  were issued to commemorate the 1966 World Cup in England and the subsequent victory by (Sir) Alf Ramsey's wingless wonders.
