Does anyone know what is the oldest COLOR (not black & white) footage of a football/soccer match?


This footage of the final match of the 1958 World Cup, between Sweden (the host country) and Brazil has some parts in color:




Any older color footage available?

Good question. There are brief color clips of soccer matches from the 1950s and 1960s.
But the earliest full game I have in color is a 1969 match between the Oakland Clippers
and Dynamo Kiev:

The earliest World Cup matches I have in color are from 1970.

Leather panels are usually tanned to a natural brown color of the ball, and the video footage is black and white.
