You can search for additional stamps from World Cup host countries in Arago. Although we could not feature every World Cup stamp you can find an exhaustive list of soccer stamps through the Soccer Philately web link below. In addition, the Sports Philatelists International website currently features all the stamps produced for this year's World Cup on their website. There you can see all of the South African soccer stamps, as well as stamps from other countries throughout the world celebrating this year's Cup.

We would like to thank the web team staff for their assistance and encouragement in creating this mini-exhibit.
