About the Football

Football will be a major feature of the Olympic programme at London 2012. The Olympic Football takes place in 6 different venues across the UK including Old Trafford, Manchester.

The men's competition is an under 23 event with each Country allowed to include three over age players in their team. There is no age restriction for the women's competition.

Both the men’s and women’s competitions will begin with a group stage. The teams will be divided into groups of four (three groups in the women’s tournament, four groups for the men), and the best eight teams will qualify for the quarter-finals. From here, the competitions are played to a knockout format: the two winning semi-finalists will play for the gold medal at Wembley, with the two losing semi-finalists facing off for the bronze.
