Here is a great piece of football art history created for the World Cup in Spain in 1982.
This poster represents the Spanish capital of Madrid and it was also here the final was played on Santiago Bernabéu Stadium (Italy 3–1 West Germany). The poster displays an old school goalkeeper wearing the characteristic cap portrayed from the back - a very cool poster indeed!
In total 15 different posters was commissioned for the Football/Soccer tournament "World Cup 1982 Spain" or "Copa del Mundo de Futbol España 1982". Each poster was designed by a different artist and each poster represents the individual host cities/venues where the World Cup matches would be played.
It is a bit unusual for a World Cup to have different posters for the different venues (normally only one is commissioned) and it is also unusual to have this many venues. But in this way the posters would also advertise the different cities and the local football clubs of the cities (the matches would have been played in stadiums which normally served as home grounds for the local club).
The poster is official WC merchandise which is visible in the bottom of the poster.
Please note: the poster was made in 1980, printed in 1981 and first used in 1982.
