    The age limit for men's football at the Tokyo Olympics could be raised

    The age limit for men's football at the Tokyo Olympics could be raised


    Players planning on competing at the 2020 Games, before they were postponed by 12 months, now face missing the tournament due to its under-23 rules.

    However, a FIFA working group has recommended the competition remain open to players born after the start of 1997.

    This would effectively raise the age limit by one year, as requested by both South Korea and Australia.

    There is no age limit for the women's tournament.
