2012 Summer Olympics Football Tournament
Sixteen U-23 teams (with three over-age players permitted) from the six FIFA affiliated confederations contest the men's tournament while the twelve teams taking part in the women's competition are full national sides.
The UK is represented by the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Olympic football team, branded under the rather more manageable name of Team GB but officially competing as Great Britain. These are the first games at which a UK women's team has taken part.
Group games are played as double-headers in different cities, many involving teams from the same group. The final two matches are played simultaneously at different venues and are also double-headers but with teams from different groups involved.
