Was it or wasn't it official? The World Cup Chandy Lion?

By Lewis, Mar 25 2017 10:17AM

The Chandy Lion you see pictured below was recently spotted for sale on eBay.

Was it issued by Chandy to commemorate the 1966 World Cup or was it rather a piece of folk-art - with somebody (probably in 1966) adding a plastic football to their Chandy Lion?

We think probably the latter, and we didn't bid to win the lion - a decision we'll really regret If it turns out we're wrong!

If you can shed any light on the mystery World Cup 1966 Chandy Lion, we'd love to hear from you.
