The men’s tournament kicks off on July 24th, 2024 and wraps up play with the Olympic Gold medal game (or final) on August 9th, 2024.

What Teams are in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics for Soccer (Football)?

For the Paris Olympics, we get to enjoy 16 teams in the men’s tournament. The Euros and Copa America will have been completed several weeks before the Olympics, so we’ll have a better idea of who the emerging favorites are when those contests conclude. There are three Olympic teams from Asia, Africa, and Europe respectively. There are also two from South, Central, and North America, one from Oceania, and France as the host country. Guinea was the final team to earn a spot after winning the AFC-CAF Playoff.

2024 Men’s Olympic Soccer Venues

So, soccer and football fans get to enjoy games all around France during the Olympics. Here are the venues planned for the men’s action. If you are in town but can’t manage to secure tickets to one of the games, most of the stadiums offer tours that you can book ahead of time to check out the pitch and everything. If you haven’t done one before, from my experience those are pretty cool. 

Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille: Five games at Stade de Bordeaux (FC Girondins de Bordeaux’s Matmut Atlantique), Stade de Lyon (Olympique Lyonnais’ Groupama Stadium) and Stade de Marseille (Olympique de Marseille’s Stade Velodrome).
