The football competition at the 1992 Summer Olympics was the first Olympic football tournament dedicated for under-23 teams. The competition featured 16 men's national sides from the six continental confederations. The 16 teams were 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 Camp Nou on 8 August 1992.[1]

Notably, these were the first matches played with football's new back-pass rule.[2]
