The theft of the Jules Rimet Trophy in 1966 is one of the most unusual stories in the history of football. The full story of what really happened has never before been told, and those parts that have been told have contained and perpetuated a number of errors. This volume sets out to put the record straight by telling the complete story. It is based on official FIFA and FA files, as well as information drawn from the archives of the German and Brazilian football authorities, police records, complementary newspaper reports, and most importantly, evidence gathered form those involved with the case itself. It presents a factual account not only of the parts that have become public knowledge, but also of the activities that went on away from the glare of publicity and which have never been told in detail before.
