Olympics Football History

The world’s biggest sport. The world’s biggest sporting event.

Although football generally has its own grand stage in terms of World Cups, the Euros, and global club football, it has consistently been part of the Olympic programme since 1908.

The amateur era saw a wide range of nations winning the men’s football tournament. More recently the countries of South America have been dominant. Brazil, who have won the World Cup more than any other country, won their only Olympic gold medal to date in front of their own fans at the Rio 2016 Games. Mexico defeated Brazil in the London 2012 gold medal match, while Argentina were victorious at both Beijing 2008 and Athens 2004, beating fellow South Americans Paraguay in the latter final.

Spain are the last European nation to win the gold medal, at their home Games of Barcelona 1992. No Asian country has ever won gold; Japan achieved the bronze medal at Mexico 1968 and finished fourth at London 2012.

The United States have won four of the six women’s competitions staged so far but lost in the quarter-finals at Rio 2016 to eventual runners-up Sweden. Japan were runners-up at London 2012. These nations will be in contention at Tokyo 2020 but the global growth of the game could see exciting new teams emerging like Chile or Zambia.
