The men’s Olympic football tournament (OFT) of the Tokyo 2020 Games will take place from 22 July to 7 August 2021 across six Japanese cities. Always among the most popular of the team competitions in the Summer Games, the men’s OFT is made up of youth teams – with each participating country allowed to supplement their squad with three overage players.

Some of the world’s brightest-shining stars have taken to the football stages of the Olympic Games, including recent gold-medal winners Lionel Messi and Neymar. Join Tokyo2020 for a look back – and ahead – at the men’s Olympic football tournament.
