Football 86 is the 14th album of the Belgian football produced by Panini. The album includes all the clubs of First and Second Division. The album has the typical layout and graphics of the period, with the cover showing a football action and the colours of the Belgian federation. Opening the album we find the fixtures of the season on the left page and the table of contents on the right page. The clubs of First Division are then shown in alphabetical order with a total of 19 stickers per club: the metallic badge, the team photo (two stickers), the coach, and 15 players. The section dedicated to the Second Division shows first the club badge (half metallic sticker) and the team photo sticker, followed by all the coaches and players of the squads with two teams per page. There are two players per stickers for the Second Division, with a total of twelve players (six stickers). There are no other sections with stickers in this collection.
The 1985/1986 First Division ended with two teams at the first place with the same points, Anderlecht and Brugge. A double final was played and Anderlecht won the title for scoring more goals away (1-1, 2-2). The top goalscorer of the season was Erwin Vandenbergh with 27 goals.
