World Cup of Masters

The World Cup of Masters, also known as the Pelé World Cup and Mundialito de Seniors was an event that ran every two years from 1987 until 1995. The tournament was for senior (35+) players. In 1990 the term "seniors" was replaced by "masters". The editions until 1991 were organized by Brazilian TV station Bandeirantes. From 1993 another organization, the International Federation of Master Football, took over.

The tournaments were unsanctioned by FIFA, and players were not recognised with international caps.

In 2009 a similar tournament started in Russia, and it was called the Legends Cup.
