Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Masters football is a 6 a-side indoor football competition in the United Kingdom, where players over the age of 35 are chosen by the Masters Football Selection Committee to represent a senior club which they played for. Regional heats are held, and the winners of each go forward to a national finals competition. Events are contested over the course of a single evening, (usually on Saturdays or Sundays), with games played in two halves of eight minutes duration. The pitch is 60m by 30m, and there is no offside rule. Matches are televised live on the UK subscription channel Sky Sports. Carbrini Sportswear are the official kit supplier for the 2009 and 2010 seasons.
