This Is How Much It Will Cost To Complete Your Euro 2016 Sticker Album

This article originally appeared on TheSPORTbible

It's perhaps the most glorious time to be a football fan - the release of a new international tournament sticker album. Panini dropped their Euro 2016 book a couple of weeks ago and TheSPORTbible office is already snowed under with shinies, swaps and, quite frankly, a few too many Adam Lallanas for our liking (no offense, Adam). Collecting stickers to fill your album with can become an expensive habit, but it is possible to fill the book for a surprisingly small amount.

The Mirror spoke to Paul Harper, a professor at the University of Cardiff, who has worked out that it's actually possible to complete this year's album for the relatively paltry sum of £68. There are 680 spaces to fill with packets retailing at 50p each. 680 divided by 5 stickers per pack means the minimum amount of packets required is 136. However, the holy grail of completing a Panini album for less than £70 is incredibly unlikely, with the average cost coming in at a wallet crippling £374.


"The 136 packets also assumes no duplicate stickers within the same packet, something Panini state is the case. In reality however, the more you collect the higher the chance of duplicates...In fact the mathematics tells us that on average you might expect to have to buy some 747 packets at cost of £374 to complete the album."

We think we're just gonna stick to swaps, cheers mate.
