 1996 British Two Pound Football Coin
These early matches were a football free-for-all with perhaps hundreds taking part, the objective being to carry a ball to one end or other of the town or village but because of the lack of rules and resulting "lawlessness" (nothing new there, then!) football was sometimes banned by royal decree.
The special year of 1996 is highlighted amis the familiar pattern of the ball and there are sixteen small rings to symbolise each of the teams who will compete in the finals, held appropriately in the country that is home to football.
The tenth Championships began in 18994 and the preliminary matches undoubtedly witnessed all the tension and drama of the previous nine tournaments.

 The Dark Site of Football
Stitching footballs is largely a home-based industry in which the manufacturing/exporting companies produce the 'panels' of the balls in their factories and hire contractors who act as middlemen between them and the home-based workers who stitch the balls.
On the issue of the actual wages paid to football stitchers there is a wide gap between, on the one hand the statements of the Sports Goods Foundation of India (SGFI) and individual exporters and, on the other hand, the results of the study by the NLI and more recent observations.
The Dutch football association (KNVB) for example wrote in a letter to the Dutch Federation of Trade Unions (FNV) that it is 'absolutely impermissible to make use of child labour' if companies use the logo of FIFA, UEFA (European Football Association) or a related event.

Football supporters, by and large, continue to receive a very negative presentation from the media and much of the research done into football and football fans has focused on negative aspects of supporters' behaviour.
Argyle (1996) claimed that attending a sports event is closely linked to identification and inclusion within a group and that identification with both the players as people and the club as an entity appear important.
They suggest that the defining characteristic that separates fans from mere spectators is the formation of alliances whereby fans `perceive themselves as members of a tacitly existing group to which the objects of their fandom belong' (p 604).

The groundwork for a European national-team competition began in 1956, two years later the first European Nations' Cup, now known as the UEFA European Championship, was under way.
Given the effort that Henri Delaunay of the French Football Federation had put into UEFA's birth and European football, it was appropriate that the final phase of the first European Nations' Cup in 1960 should be held in France.
The European Nations' Cup became the UEFA European Football Championship for 1968.

 Important sporting events can trigger heart attacks in men   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Witte and colleagues compared the number of deaths on 22 June 1996 (the day the Dutch football team was knocked out of the European football championship) with the number of deaths five days before and after the match and in the same period in 1995 and 1997.
Factors such as increased mental and emotional stress, high alcohol intake, overeating and excessive smoking are thought to trigger cardiovascular deaths, explain the authors.
A critical football match - which combines several of these factors at one point in time - may provoke a sufficient level of stress to trigger acute heart attack or stroke, they say.

The 1964 championships were held in Spain, and the Spanish national side succeeded in collecting its only major trophy to date before a 120,000-strong Madrid crowd.
Four years later the qualifying tournament was expanded to eight groups, accommodating 31 entries, and thereafter the competition was known as the European Championship.
The expansion to accommodate 16 finalists in 1996, when England was the host nation, reflected not just the emergence of countries from Eastern Europe but also the strength and increasing popularity of Delaunay's dream.
