A 16 teams football tournament was played as part of the 1988 Summer Olympics. The tournament featured men's national teams from six continental confederations. The 16 teams are drawn into four groups of four and each group played a round-robin tournament. At the end of the group stage, the top two teams advanced to the knockout stage, beginning with the quarter-finals and culminating with the gold medal match at the Seoul Olympic Stadium on 1 October 1988.[1]

The USSR team purposefully did not use some strong players in the FIFA World Cup 1986 and UEFA Euro 1988, so that they would be able to participate in the Olympic tournament. During the Olympics, the Soviets primarily stayed on a yacht rather than in the Olympic Village. After winning the gold medal, each player from the Soviet team received 15 thousand dollars from the Soviet government.[2]
