This is the official match ticket from the 1966 FA Cup Final, England's premier cup football competition. The match was played on Saturday 14th May 1966 at the original Wembley Stadium and it was contested by Everton and Sheffield Wednesday. Everton who were the first team to reach an FA Cup Final without conceding in the preceding rounds, won the match 3-2 after coming back from 2-0 down.  Mike Trebilcock (2) and Derek Temple got Everton's goals whilst Jim McCalliog and David Ford scored the owls goals.

Temple's winner came after an unfortunate slip by Gerry Young. The ball squirmed under his foot, and Temple was able to run clear and slot the ball past goalkeeper Springett into the corner. Everton became only the second side ever, after Blackpool in 1953, to come from two goals behind to win the cup without the need of extra time, a feat which has not been repeated since. By contrast, Wednesday hold the unwanted record of being the only side ever to lose a final in regulation time having held a two goal lead and without the loss of a player to injury. Their Bolton counterparts of 1953 having been effectively reduced to nine fit men before losing their two goal lead.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney of The Beatles both attended the match. One of the game's most memorable moments was Everton fan Eddie Cavanagh's lone pitch invasion which saw him pursued across the pitch by a policeman

This result meant the FA Cup was taken back to Goodison Park for the third time and the first time for 33 years, since Dixie Dean and co. won it in 1933.
