As part of the Football Association of Ireland’s visit to Tipperary for its 2016 Festival of Football and Annual General Meeting, the Irish Masters Football team will play an exhibition game against St Michael’s AFC.
The game will take place in Cook Park on Sunday, July 24 at 19:00 with a host of legendary football figures set to take part, including former Republic of Ireland international Ray Houghton.
With the Festival of Football set to visit numerous clubs throughout the county ahead of the AGM on Saturday, July 30, this exhibition game acts as the perfect curtain-raiser for what promises to be a memorable week celebrating football in Tipperary.
The Irish Masters Football team, which is jointly supported by the FAI and PFAI, helps to highlight health and well being amongst players who have recently retired from the professional game and encourages them to stay active and involved in sport.
St Michael’s AFC will be the ideal hosts for this unique game considering their own history – stretching back to 1947 – in junior football and they will invite many of their former players back to Cook Park to take on the Masters team.
