Experiencing the World Cup is as much about putting together a complete sticker collection as it is watching the matches themselves – and 2018’s tournament is no different. We show you how to fill your World Cup 2018 sticker book without breaking the bank

This year, the official sticker album has been published by Panini, so if you want the best quality album with all the correct licences, then this is the one to go for.

It’ll also be important to have the same sticker album as everyone else if you want to do any trading, so be sure to stick with the Panini gear.

Although nothing beats the satisfaction of putting together a complete album, actually getting to that point is a bit of a mission thanks to the cost of the individual sticker packs.

On the high street you’re looking at spending 80p for each pack of 5 stickers. At an average cost of 16p per ticket, that theoretically works out at ‘just’ £110.40 for a complete 690 sticker set.

But of course the process soon becomes much more complicated once you start discovering duplicate cards. Unless you have a group of sticker-collecting friends big enough to guarantee you can trade each duplicate away, you’re going to need to buy more stickers than you need in order to get a complete set.

Instead, it’s much better to buy your stickers in bulk at a steep discount.

The cheapest price around at the moment can be found at Wowcher, which will sell you 100 packs of stickers for £58 – netting you 500 in all. That’s a £22 saving.

However if you’d rather buy your stickers from a more well-known site like Amazon or Ebay, you can also get decent discounts (although not as good as Wowcher) there as well.

By our estimation you’ll need to buy at least 200 packs to guarantee you’ll have enough stickers to trade to complete the full 690 set. Once you’ve got the stickers in had you’ll need to get trading, unless you’re willing to brute force a complete collection by paying well over the odds.
