This Football Bread is Coming Home

Here’s a football that’s definitely coming home – French artisan bakery Poilâne has created a bespoke football bread designed for sharing in front of the game.

Football snacks: Poilâne’s football bread Designed by Parisian boulanger Lionel Poilâne and sculptor César for the 1998 World Cup, the Poilâne football bread is the perfect centerpiece for your table if you’re hosting a World Cup party.

The limited-edition homemade football bread is made in a whole piece – a technical feat in the bakery world – and is perfect for pairing with cheese, charcuterie, sweet fillings, dips and spreads.

Poilâne’s football bread can be ordered 72 hours in advance from Poilâne’s two London locations – in Chelsea and Belgravia – on online at

Priced £29 and available until 18 July
