Complete Draw of 2024 Olympic Football Mens

The 2024 Olympic Men’s football is the most anticipated event for the fans of the beautiful game in a year full of elite competitions, with the UEFA Euro 2024 and Copa America taking place one month earlier.

The Summer Olympic are drawing closer, and Paris will hold them in late July and early August.

Football is a massive event attracting top footballers under 23 (born on or after January 1, 2001) plus three designated overage players, which is applied for Men’s football only.

Meanwhile, the women’s squads are not age-restricted, meaning all full professionals are eligible for selection.
