Take a look back through our very own time machine and see what the original WAGS got up to.
When we think of footballers’ WAGS, we think of a VIP life full of glitz and glamour. However, for the World Cup WAGS of ’66 things were very different……
On the morning of 30 July 1966, ten women made their way to Wembley Stadium for a football match that defined a decade – and would change their lives forever.
There was no welcoming committee and no ceremony; they drove themselves, entered through the normal stadium entrance and found their own seats – in the stands.
And after the historic win, the wives were whisked off to a burger bar as their significant other were paraded in front of adoring crowds and entertained at a swanky banquet.
WAGS of ‘66 tells the story of England’s iconic 1966 World Cup victory through the eyes of the women who knew the players best.
It also reveals what life was really like as a footballer’s wife in the 1960’s – when footballers were lucky to get paid £100-a-week, and their wives were barely seen and rarely heard.
Tune in to WAGS of 1966 on Yesterday on Thursday October 6 to experience England’s World Cup win and discover how the sixties defined the lives of the WAGs of today.
