There is no maximum age, but you will find once a player hits 38 he will seriously think of retirement. However, some players have played well into their 40's, mainly goalkeepers.

How old do you have to be to play football?

Footballers start playing football at a very early age. Most start as soon as the can stand up and kick a ball. Between the ages of 5 and 14 potential footballers will be scouted by professional clubs and enter an academy. By the time a a player has left school he will have been offered a professional contract by a club and will play football professionally. It is very rare for a player not to be chosen to enter an academy and yet still be offered a contract. The chances of eventually being offered a contact are very small and only the most gifted and hard working players actually make it.
