The teams are arriving in Brazil and kick-off for the Men’s and Women’s Olympic Football Tournaments is days away. With so many stars set to take to the pitch, here is how FIFA.com will give you direct access to all the action over the next few weeks.
We will be on the ground at all six host cities bringing you news, interviews and photos from each of the 28 sides bidding to wear a medal around their necks in late August. In the meantime, you can already become acquainted with all the budding superstars who will be on show with our team profiles and full squad lists, giving you the key numbers on the potential Rio 2016 stars.
Our World Match Centre will keep you abreast of all the drama from each of the matches with up-to-the-minute info. Match reports will follow the final whistle, providing a detailed rundown of the tournament for those unable to get to the games.
Exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures, plus extensive photo galleries from the games, training sessions and team activities will be on hand too. There will also be facts, figures, fixtures and results to give you the full picture of proceedings across the country.
And with the Games of the XXXI Olympiad taking place in a country with such a fine tradition of culture as well as football, you can find out even more about what it has to offer in our Destination section. From Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo, get an insight into what the South American country has in store for those lucky enough to be here for the tournament itself.
But no matter where you are, the number of ways to get your hands on all the info has never been greater. The FIFA App will bring the world of Rio 2016 straight to your smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the FIFA and FIFA Women’s World Cup Facebook pages, @FIFAcom and @FIFAWWC Twitter feed and our Instagram account will keep you up-to-date with all the content you can handle.
With so much to come, getting to know this generation of footballing Olympians has never been easier.
