‘DOWN MEXICO WAY!’ is an on-going web-book with the aim of gathering together the experiences of people who travelled to the 1970 World Cup tournament. The long-term aim is to publish – in book-form – to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the tournament in 2020.

In the meantime, this site will be frequently updated with new stories and fresh memories from existing contributors.
