To celebrate this historic edition of the tournament in Qatar – held for the first time ever across November and December, and in some incredible futuristic venues – Panini is proud to announce the launch of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Sticker Collection.
A must for any true football fanatic or collector, this collection is 100% Panini – comprehensive, with a fresh design concept and packed with stats and facts.
All 32 teams qualified for the final phase of the tournament are represented by a squad of 18 players, official strips and badges. Each line-up includes a mix of experienced players, those at the top of their game, and others playing their first major tournament. You’ll also find a team photo, the logo of the football federation, plus details of each country’s path to the finals and the tournament schedule.
Alongside the team pages, there are two sections specially designed to get the collector into the spirit of the FIFA World Cup: one celebrating the incredible architecture of the stadiums, and another recalling the rich history of the event, created in collaboration with the FIFA Football Museum. And of course, as in any classic Panini FIFA World Cup collection, there are stickers featuring the trophy and official symbols of the event.
The collection consists of a total of 670 stickers, including 50 special stickers. Plus, for the first time in a FIFA World Cup collection, fans can find Panini Extra Stickers – super-rare stickers inserted randomly into standard packets. These stickers stand out from the main collection as they feature an action image on the front. Twenty players have been selected, both Legends and Rookies, and each is represented in different colour variations.
