The format will be 11-a-side but with just 20 minutes each way plus unlimited ‘roll on, roll off’ substitutions.
Football40 will hold Masters Home internationals between England, Italy, Brazil and Argentina plus an eight-team legends World Cup in South Africa later in the year.
Glenn Hoddle is F40’s technical director and will also manage the England side. The concept is to provide a serious yet fun environment for over 35s with the unlimited subs rule helping on the fitness side.

“The fact that a player can be substituted and then go back on later means that players can perform at their maximum for short periods, they know that they can’t play at their peak for 90 minutes but this format means they can still entertain and have a real go.”
The provisional Tottingham Hotspurs squad includes Gary Mabbutt, Clive Allen, Graham Roberts, Paul Miller, Colin Calderwood, Micky Hazard, John Pratt, Steve Sedgley, Paul Allen, Ricky Villa, Garry Brooke, Mark Falco and Tony Galvin.
