Lillywhites was founded in 1863 by the Lillywhite family, a leading cricket family. As a gentleman was seen to require cricket bats and cigars, the first store on London's Haymarket sold only cricketbats and cigars. But the Lillywhites store soon progressed to other sports equipment. In 1866, the Lillywhites No 5 football was picked for a Football Association match. This was the first time a ball had been specified for a football game.
