Olympic Football Tournament 1984

XVI Olympic Football Tournament (Los Angeles 1984)

(From 29-07-1984 to 11-08-1984)

* NOTE: After the American boycott to the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, the Soviet Union took “retaliatory” measures and, on May 8, 1984, declared their own boycott to the American Games of Los Angeles. They were soon followed by a series of communist countries alleging “security measures.” This led to a major re-design of the participants in Los Angeles, with some qualified teams withdrawing and others being invited to replace them. These changes are indicated below.
