At 79, an Australian man is ranked as the oldest competitive soccer player in the world

At the age of 79, a local soccer player from Australia set a Guinness World Record as the world's oldest competitive player.

David Mudge, who turned 80 on Wednesday, played for the Kissing Point Football Club in a Northern Suburbs Football Association match against North Turramurra when he was 79 years and 89 days old, according to Guinness World Records.

After his son learned that the previous record-holder for the oldest male competitive football (soccer) player was only 73 years old, Mudge, who plays for the over-45 team every week of the season, applied for the Guinness World Record.

According to GWR, Mudge was required to remain on the field for the full 90 minutes of the match on April 25, 2022.
