The football tournament at the 1980 Summer Olympics started on July 20 and ended on August 2. Only one event, the men's tournament, was contested.

Sixteen teams were divided into four groups:

In the technical report following the competition, FIFA reported that: "Compared with the 1979 World Youth Tournament in Japan and the 1978 World Cup finals in Argentina, the standard of football at the Olympic Football Tournament was generally of an inferior quality,".[1]

Venues

The football tournament was held in five venues:

The final was held at the Grand Arena of the Central Lenin Stadium and the match for the 3rd place was held at the Grand Arena of the Dynamo Stadium. The football tournament was the most attended event on these Olympics: 1,821,624 spectators watched 32 matches of it at the stadiums.
