Earlier this month The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) announced where TeamGB will be playing their group fixtures. The men’s team, coached by Stuart Pearce, will begin their London 2012 campaign at Old Trafford on Thursday 26 July, followed by Wembley Stadium on Sunday 29 July and their final group game will be at the Millennium Stadium on Wednesday 1 August.
The women’s team, coached by Hope Powell, will begin the tournament on Wednesday 25 July at the Millennium Stadium, followed by Saturday 28 July also at the Millennium Stadium. Their final group stage match will take place on Tuesday 31 July at Wembley Stadium.
The Official Draw for the Olympic Football Tournament will take place on 24 April 2012 at Wembley Stadium, when all group fixtures will be decided for all venues.
LOCOG CEO Paul Deighton commented: ‘The Olympic Football tournament features some of the world’s best young and up and coming players in the men’s game and the cream of the women’s game. As a football loving nation, bringing the Games to the whole of the UK allows everyone to share in the excitement while showing their support for Team GB. With ticket prices for adults starting at £20 and our great special prices for young people and those over 60, I am sure there is something for everyone’
Previous Olympic Football tournaments have seen the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi, Samuel Eto’o, Ronaldinho and Jose ‘Pep’ Guardiola become Olympic medallists.
