The 7-a-side Football tournament features eight men’s teams, with two groups of four teams playing in a round-robin format. Teams in a group play each other once, with three points for a win and one point for a draw.
The top two teams in each group will qualify for the semi-finals, with the winning semi-finalists going head to head for the gold.
In the group matches games can be played to a draw. In the knockout stages, two 10-minute periods of extra time are played. If scores are still tied after this, the game goes to a penalty shoot-out of five kicks per team, followed by sudden-death penalties if necessary.
