Should the article be made bigger and more general[edit]

It's amazing this article is here and obviously it should be here, at the time those games were the biggest club level international games.

The issue is, not only Sunderland won it. Those kind of games were also won by Renton, Hearts, and probably more clubs. Shouldn't it be better to turn this article into an article about all those games? What should be the name then? (talk) 20:42, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

An article on World Championship (football), which is currently a redirect to that match (but should probably be a disambiguation page at the moment!) would be appropriate, stating who organised the matches, how they came about, how long they ran for etc. There could then potentially be a separate article on each match. All would need sourcing, however! --Super Nintendo Chalmers (talk) 12:41, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
