See all the games, venues, and kick-off times for the Men’s Olympic Games and the Knockout Round.

What is the format of the Olympic Games?

For the men’s competition, the nations provide a squad of players under 23 – although up to three of these players can be out of date. For example, the French U23s have selected 35-year-old Tigres striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, while former Barcelona full-back Dani Alves, now 38 and plays for Sao Paulo, will play for the Brazilian U23s.

The 16 nations in Japan were drawn into four groups of four. The top two in each group qualified for the knockout round to play the quarterfinals and semifinals, followed by a bronze medal playoff and a gold medal game.
