Masters Football began in the UK in 2000, and now entering its eighth year it has grown enormously to become a regular fixture on any football
fan’s calendar. It is an exciting 6-a-side indoor football game that is fast and furious and full of action. Played in the indoor Cotai Strip
CotaiArena, the 4 teams consist of squads of 9 although only 6 players take the field at any time. The game is played in two 8-minute halves,
11-a-side rules apply with a few exceptions (i.e. no off-sides, no corners). All on the same night, each team will play each other in a round-robin
event, with the two best sides playing off in the final.
Since its inception, the Masters Cup has been played in front of over 1.2 million people, and many more millions have tuned in to see the action
on TV and roar their team on to glory.
