The Muratti is an annual men's football competition, inaugurated in 1905, between the Channel Islands of Guernseymarker, Jerseymarker and Alderneymarker, the prize for winning being a trophy called the Muratti Vase. Both Matthew Le Tissier and Graeme Le Saux played in the Muratti for Guernsey and Jersey respectively. Since its inception, the match has been held in both islands on alternate years, interrupted only between 1915-1919 and 1940-1946 due to the First and Second World Wars. The teams wear their island colours of green and white (Guernsey) and red and white (Jersey) and blue and white (Alderney). The competition, which has been sponsored by Cimandis since 2006, now includes Ladies' and Junior trophies.


Jersey has won the competition 48 times, Guernsey 42 times, and Alderney once (in 1920). Jersey won the 2006 Muratti 3-2, the third and winning goal scored by Peter Vincenti Jnr (the son of Jersey's current manager). Jersey Police were called to a series of incidents as violence erupted between rival supporters after the 2006 final.

The 2007 Muratti Vase Semi-Final took place between Alderney and Guernsey on Saturday 17 March (result: Guernsey 5 - Alderney 0), the winners playing Jersey at the Footes Lane Stadium on Sunday 6 May. The result of the 2007 final was Guernsey 0 - 0 Jersey (Jersey won 7-6 on penalties).

The 2007 Ladies Muratti between Guernsey and Jersey took place at the Footes Lane Stadium on Monday 7 May. The result was Guernsey Ladies 1 - 3 Jersey Ladies (all goals scored in extra time).

Change of name

It was reported in March 2009 that the name of the competition would have to be changed due to proposed legislative restrictions on tobacco advertising in Jersey. Although the Muratti brand of cigarettes is not sold in Jersey, the name of the tobacco manufacturer linked to the name of the trophy would fall within the ban on promotion of brands.
