Bottle of 1966 World Cup champagne goes up for sale.

A bottle of Champagne produced for England’s 1966 World Cup winning team has gone up for sale on Loot.com.

The Champagne, which comes from a case of Heidsieck Dry Monopole produced specifically for the Three Lions squad following their 4-2 victory over West Germany at Wembley.

England manager Sir Alf Ramsey was first presented with the champagne following the win, which secured the country’s first and so far only World Cup win.

The Champagne is being sold with a £500 reserve but, if proven authentic, could be worth a whole lot more.

Just five unopened bottles of the Champagne are thought to be in circulation.

 One was previously sold for £900 at a charity auction while another went for £1,997 after going on the block at Sothebys.

Another was reportedly sold for in excess of £2,400.

Never previously listed for sale online, this bottle has some slight water damage on the left wing of the top bottle sticker.

Despite this, the seller insists a professional restorer could probably remove most of the stain, further enhancing the value.

Though the seller insists the item is not for sale but rather private auction, anyone hoping to get their hands on a bit of England World Cup memorabilia could do worse than take a closer look.

This is your chance to bring football home.
