The 1970 World Cup Final was played by Brazil and Italy on June 21, 1970 at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico. This final was marked as the first time that two former world champions met in a final. Italy had already won the World Cup in 1934 and 1938, while Brazil won in 1958 and 1962.

Before the final, in Mexico, Brazil played the qualifiers against Colombia, Venezuela and Paraguay. Brazil was far superior to all its opponents, winning all 6 games, scoring 23 goals and suffering only 2. In the last game of the round Brazil defeated Paraguay by 1 to 0 and had the largest official audience ever recorded for a game soccer, with 183,341 spectators at Maracanã. Italy, on the other hand, overcame East Germany and Wales in Group 3 of the European Qualifiers, with notable home victories against the two teams, to reach the tournament in Mexico.

With the third title, after 1958 and 1962, Brazil became the most champion national team at that time, surpassing Italy and Uruguay, which each had two championships. Brazil also won the right to definitively own the Jules Rimet Cup. Brazilian coach Mário Zagallo was the first to become World Cup champion as a player (1958, 1962) and coach, and Pelé ended his career playing in World Cups as the first (and only one so far) champion three times.
