Englishman Matthew, the reigning and three-time World Champion from Sheffield who struck gold in the Men's Singles and Men's Doubles in the 2010 Games in Delhi, will begin his title defence against Xavier Koenig, a 29-year-old Mauritian making his Games debut.
Nicol David, the women's world No1 since August 2006 who is celebrating a record-equalling fifth successive appearance in the Games since 1998, lines up against Vanessa Florens, a 34-year-old from Mauritius who also competed in the 2006 Games in Melbourne.
Mauritius, with a population of just over 1 million, boasts only a handful of squash courts and neither Koenig nor Florens - the only two Mauritians competing in the squash events in Glasgow - have ever been world-ranked.
Top seed Matthew, ranked two in the world and aged 33, is expected to meet Guernsey's world No23 Chris Simpson, the No7 seed, in the quarter-finals before a predicted clash with England team-mate Peter Barker, the third seed and bronze medallist in 2010, in the semi-finals.
Second seed James Willstrop is Matthew's anticipated opponent in a repeat of the 2010 all-English final. Willstrop, also a Yorkshireman, from Harrogate, begins his third Commonwealth Games campaign against Bermuda's Nicholas Kyme, a 33-year-old Games veteran since 2002. 30-year-old Willstrop, a former world No1 currently ranked six in the world, is drawn to meet Botswana Games debutant Alister Walker in the quarter-finals before a semi-final battle with former Pontefract club-mate Saurav Ghosal, the No4 seed from India.
In the women's event, 30-year-old Penangite David is expected to renew her career-long rivalry with England's No8 seed Jenny Duncalf in the quarter-finals in what would be a repeat of the Delhi final. Third-seeded New Zealander Joelle King, a double medallist in Delhi, is predicted to be David's semi-final opponent.
The climax is expected to be a repeat of the last two British Open finals between David and Laura Massaro, the World Champion from England who is the event's No2 seed. Massaro first meets Lynette Vai, a Games debutante from Papua New Guinea playing the biggest match of her life three days after her 16th birthday.
Awaiting Massaro in the quarter-finals should be Malaysian Low Wee Wern, the fifth seed, with fourth-seeded England team-mate Alison Waters her likely opponent in the semis.
Pools have also been set in the Men's, Women's and Mixed Doubles events - for details, see below.
Glasgow 2014 squash action takes place at the Scotstoun Sports Campus - with Singles from 24-28 July, followed by Doubles from 29 July to 3 August.
