2020 Olympics Soccer Broadcast Guide: Where to watch the men's tournament in USA & 70+ countries

July 19, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
The 2020 Olympic men's soccer tournament will kick off on July 22nd. LSTV has all the info you need to follow all 16 teams over the course of the competition.

Football fans have been really spoiled this summer, with plenty of tournaments to keep them entertained until many of their favorite players are back in action with the world's biggest clubs next month. With the Euros and the Copa America coming to a conclusion, and the Gold Cup now in the knockout stages, many eyes will also be tuning in to catch some of football's rising young stars at the 2020 Olympic Games. Although this has been an under-23 tournament since 1992 as the IOC sought to give youngsters a chance, each team are allowed a maximum of three "over-age" players to boost their squads.

Who are the reigning Olympic champions?

Brazil presently are the reigning Olympic champions in men's soccer, with the South American powerhouse winning their first ever gold medal while serving as hosts in 2016. The Selecao will be hoping to follow in the steps of fellow South American sides like Uruguay and Argentina to successfully defend their title this summer.

Who are the most successful men's soccer team in Olympic history?

Brazil, technically, are the most decorated men's soccer team in Olympic history if one wants to count sheer number of medals. To date, they've won six medals: one gold, three silver (1984, 1988, and 2012), and two bronze (1996, 2008).

Yet, if one is actually looking at success in terms of gold medals, which makes sense, Great Britain have won three golds, but unfortunately, none have been in this century. Their last time on the winners' podium was over 100 years ago, in 1912, while they won two other golds in 1900 and 1908.

Meanwhile, it may shock most people to know that there are quite a few people who'd rate Hungary as the most successful team in Olympic history? Why? Well, the Eastern European nation have won five medals, which is one less than Brazil, but three of their have been gold, with one silver and one bronze making up the total. However, none of these have been after 1972.

However, due to COVID-19, FIFA has allowed players born on or after January 1, 1997 as those players would've taken part if the Olympics had taken place last year.
