50 years on from England’s iconic World Cup, the National Football Museum have worked with The FA to bring the glorious summer of ’66 back to life.
With stories from the people who made the games, played the games and watched the games that made the 1966 World Cup such a memorable tournament, the 1966 World Cup Exhibition celebrates England’s success and looks at the legacy of that win.
In this online exhibition we look at the Boys of 66 who contributed so much to help England lift the Jules Rimet trophy on 30 July 1966.
The exhibition has been made possible thanks to a £302,500 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant.
Finding the winning formula
In April 1966 Ramsey’s men won 4-3 against Scotland at Hampden Park to clinch the British Home Championship and show the world why they were one of the pre-tournament favourites.
