Women's Olympic Football tournament was held for the third time at the 2004 Summer Olympics.[1][2] The tournament featured 10 women's national teams from six continental confederations. The 10 teams were drawn into two groups of three and one group of four and each group played a round-robin tournament. At the end of the group stage, the top teams from each group advanced to the knockout stage, beginning with the quarter-finals and culminating with the gold medal match at Karaiskakis Stadium on 26 August 2004.

Qualification

This is the first Olympic women's football tournament whose participants in the finals are determined separately from FIFA Women's World Cup: each of the six continental confederations determines the teams playing the finals.[3]

Seeding

Originally, the tournament was planned to form two groups of five teams in the group stage, then play a knockout stage by four teams (two top teams in each group).[4] The format is later changed: the tournament is to form three groups of three or four teams in the group stage, then play a knockout stage by eight teams (two top teams in each group and two best third-placed teams from three groups).[5]
