The men's football tournament at the 2020 Summer Olympics was to be held from 23 July to 8 August 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the games have been postponed to 23 July to 8 August 2021. However, their official name remains 2020 Summer Olympics. [1] It will be the 27th edition of the men's Olympic football tournament. Together with the women's competition, the 2020 Summer Olympics football tournament will be held in six cities in Japan, including Olympic host city Tokyo. The final will be hosted at the International Stadium in Yokohama. Teams participating in the men's competition are restricted to under-24 players (born on or after 1 January 1997) with a maximum of three overage players allowed. The men's tournament is typically restricted to under-23 players, though following the postponement of the Olympics by a year, FIFA decided to maintain the restriction of players born on or after 1 January 1997.[2]

Brazil are the defending champions.

Venues

The tournament will be held in six venues across six cities:

Squads

The men's tournament is an international tournament with restrictions on age: players must be born on or after 1 January 1997, with three overage players allowed for each squad in the final tournament. Each team has to submit a squad of 18 players, two of whom must be goalkeepers. Each team can also name a list of four alternate players, who can replace any player in the squad in case of injury during the tournament.[12]

Draw

The 16 teams will be drawn into four groups of four teams. The hosts Japan are automatically seeded into Pot 1 and assigned to position A1, while the remaining teams are seeded into their respective pots based on their results in the last five Olympics (more recent tournaments weighted more heavily), with bonus points awarded to confederation champions. No group can contain more than one team from each confederation.[13]

Group stage

The competing countries will be divided into four groups of four teams, denoted as groups A, B, C and D. Teams in each group will play one another in a round-robin basis, with the top two teams of each group advancing to the quarter-finals.

All times are local, JST (UTC+9).[14]

Tiebreakers

  1. Points obtained in all group matches (three points for a win, one for a draw, none for a defeat);
  2. Goal difference in all group matches;
  3. Number of goals scored in all group matches;
  4. Points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question;
  5. Goal difference in the matches played between the teams in question;
  6. Number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question;
  7. Fair play points in all group matches (only one deduction could be applied to a player in a single match):
    • Yellow card: -1 point;
    • Indirect red card (second yellow card): -3 points;
    • Direct red card: -4 points;
    • Yellow card and direct red card: -5 points;
  8. Drawing of lots.
