Masters Football 2022: When will it return and who will play in the Glasgow tournament?

Masters Football is set to return to our screens this year.

Masters Football was shown live on Sky Sports between 2000 and 2011 and was a much loved show for fans across the UK as they were able to witness their heroes compete in a six-a-side tournament.

The series is for retired players over the age of 35 and saw a number of footballing legends participate in highly competitive matches.

Regional heats were held, with the winners of each progressing to a national competition.

Events were then contested over an evening, with two halves of eight minutes each played out across various UK indoor venues.

Fans have long been waiting for a return of Masters and it appears they don’t have to wait much longer, with the tournament set to return later this year.

When will Masters Football return?

The new Masters tournament will be held at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on July 8 2022 - less than six months away.

It will be shown on the newly launched 360 Sports TV - a new sports documentary streaming service who are planning a full, major tournament with regional heats in 2023.

Former Arsenal striker and Masters star, Tony Woodcock, is director and co-founder of the channel.

Who will play?

It has been reported that former players from Celtic, Rangers, Liverpool and Manchester United will feature, with the likes of  Paul Scholes, Steve McManaman, Michael Mols and Wes Brown expected to make an appearance.

Previous tournaments include numerous stars such as Ally McCoist, Roy Keane and Matt Le Tissier.
