The collection reflects Scotland's status as one of the founding nations of association football. As a result, the museum is now home to the world's oldest international match ticket (from Scotland v England, 1872), the world's oldest football trophy (the Scottish Cup) and the first ever World Championship trophy (won by Renton in 1888). In telling the story of Scottish football, the museum provides a social and cultural history of Scotland over the past century.
