It's back!

Was there anything better than flicking on Sky Sports back in the day and seeing that there was a Masters football tournament on? The indoor matches featuring legends of the past were always a thrill, with multiple events culminating in a showpiece final at the end of the year.

They were a great watch, even if many of the players had lost some of the touch they previously possessed.

Masters football hasn't been around for quite some time now, although that is all set to change in the coming weeks.

The format will be making its long awaited return at an event in Glasgow next month, with Celtic, Rangers, Liverpool, and Manchester United the four teams set to take part.

While there had been little indication as to what sort of names would line out of those sides, we have now been given a first look at the squads that will take part. They certainly don't disappoint.

Squads confirmed for Masters football return

Manchester United will field a pair of former Ireland internationals, with John O'Shea and Darron Gibson both included in their squad. While there will be no 'Class of 92' involvement, the likes of Louis Saha, Wes Brown, and Karel Poborsky are among the other names available.



Liverpool have also put together a decent selection of players.


Jamie Carragher is the headline name, where he will be joined by fellow Champions League winners Luis Garcia, Stephen Warnock, and Steve McManaman.

A decent outfit.


Celtic have included a number of recent stars, including Joe Ledley, Kris Commons, and Carlton Cole, as well as legendary midfielder Stylian Petrov.

Rangers complete the lineup, including a number of star players from the past.

Kris Boyd, Barry Ferguson, Pedro Mendes, and Roy Carroll will certainly look forward to facing their Glasgow rivals.


The event will take place in Glasgow on July 8th, being broadcast on streaming service 360Sports.

It has been 11 years since the last Masters football event, so this one should be an absolute belter.
