Rangers set to feature in newly revamped Masters football tournament on 360 Sports TV

Rangers are amongst one of four teams who will participate in the new revamped edition of the legendary Masters six-a-side football tournament that was so popular at the beginning of the century, alongside Celtic, Manchester Utd, and Liverpool.

The original master’s series ran between 2000 and 2011 and was exclusively shown on Sky Sports and was always an excellent competition to watch and this news will bring back waves of nostalgia for fans of a certain age.

There were always former Premier League and Scottish legends playing and the competition was fierce. Rangers won two national titles, in 2006 and in the final edition in 2011, and will surely be aiming to win the new event, especially considering it will be staged at the Braehead Arena on July 8.

360 Sports Tv to show master’s six a side competition in July following an 11-year break

With Sky Sports broadcasting the original run, the newly set up streaming site 360 Sports Tv will be showing it this time in what could hopefully attract a new audience to the buzz of masters football.

The format will see the four teams battle it out over two eight-minute halves, with the top two teams in the group fighting it out in the final to see who will be crowned the winner.

The good news is this isn’t going to be a one-off event. There are plans to expand it into regional heats in 2023 which will encompass a full major tournament, just like the glory days.

Although not much is known of the new streaming service, they seem to be on the right track with the announcement of this and hopefully, it can continue to be a yearly competition.

There is nothing like seeing a Rangers win over Celtic, regardless of if it is in the Scottish Premiership or the master’s football competition, plus the opportunity to show we are the best Britain has to offer.

It can’t come soon enough.

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have been demanding the introduction of VAR following yet another poor refereeing performance in the Scottish Premiership.
