Glasgow Celtic were the first British Football Club to win the European Cup, the predecessor to the Champions League, beating Inter Milan 2-1 in the final on 25th May 1967 at the Estádio Nacional near Lisbon, Portugal.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of this historic achievement and to commemorate it Royal Mail has teamed up with Celtic to launch a Special Stamp Sheet and presentation folder celebrating the legendary Lisbon Lions.
This individually numbered limited edition of 5,000 stamp sheets include 10 labels containing iconic photos of the Quarter Final, Semi Final and the Final as well as the celebrations following Celtic’s victory.
A Scottish Saltire stamp sits proudly beside each label.
The presentation folder tells the story of the final and how Celtic got there including key stats on who they played, the scores and the scorers.
The folder also explores what was particularly special about the Lisbon Lions and why they merit their place in the history of football.
