Casual socks from COPA Football from the official FIFA Classics collection. The Mexico World Cup 1990 Mascot Socks are in black and feature an all-over print of the official World Cup '90s mascot. The name of the mascot is Ciao and that is also an Italian greeting. The mascot is a soccer player consisting of sticks and a head like a soccer ball. The body contains the Italian tricolor (green, red and white). The socks are produced in Italy and are made of 85% cotton, 12% nylon and 3% lycra.
The official mascots are a set of unique characters for each event. The tradition of the official FIFA World Cup mascots started in 1966 during the World Cup in England with a lion named World Cup Willie. Willie was one of the first mascots associated with major sports leagues. The mascots represent a characteristic of the host country, such as flora, fauna or costume. The characters are aimed at children and coincide with shows and merchandise.
The FIFA Classics World Cup collection from COPA Football consists of several t-shirts, casual socks and sock box sets which feature the official World Cup posters, emblems and mascots from various World Cup football.
