When a World Cup rolls around every four years, collecting Panini stickers becomes every football fan's favourite pastime, and for World Cup 2022 it is no different. 

With 670 stickers to collect for the Qatar World Cup, though, it isn't a cheap expense to complete a full album. Single packs contain five stickers and cost 90p, and one researcher, Kieran Maguire, has suggested if someone managed to get every sticker at the first attempt, it would cost around £120.

Single packs (5 stickers) – 90p

Smyths, local newsagents and supermarkets all sell single packs of five stickers for 90p, making the cost of each individual sticker 18p. 

Essential starter pack (31 stickers plus album) – £4.99

The essential starter pack costs £4.99 at Argos, Amazon and Smyths, and contains a sticker album to place each player into once you bag them in a pack. Thirty-one stickers are also included, which, when the album is removed from the price, means each sticker only costs 16p each.

In fact, the starter pack actually offers the cheapest price per sticker out of all of the options. It does entail acquiring plenty of sticker books, though, and they could start taking up an awful lot of unnecessary space. 

Mega multiset (75 stickers) – £13

The mega multiset gives you 75 stickers for £13, working out at 17p per sticker. While it is a slightly more expensive option, it saves paying an extortionate amount in one big hit, and is a more viable option for regular, smaller purchases. 

Panini World Cup 2022 Stickers - 50 Pack

50 packs (250 stickers) – £45

The first bulk purchasing option is again available through Argos, with the retailer offering 50 packs (250 stickers) for £45. This is also the same on Amazon, with the cost per sticker working out at 18p. 

100 packs (500 stickers) – £81

The largest offering is a mega 100-pack selection, with 500 stickers selling for £90 at Amazon. However, Groupon has managed to sell the 100 packs at an even cheaper price of £81 - proportionately the joint-cheapest way to buy all your Panini World Cup stickers, alongside the starter pack. 

In Groupon's offer, each sticker costs just 16p, with 500 stickers getting you closer to that goal of a complete album.
