Women's Olympic Football tournament was held for the third time at the 2004 Summer Olympics.[1][2] The tournament featured 10 women's national teams from six continental confederations. The 10 teams were drawn into two groups of three and one group of four and each group played a round-robin tournament. At the end of the group stage, the top teams from each group advanced to the knockout stage, beginning with the quarter-finals and culminating with the gold medal match at Karaiskakis Stadium on 26 August 2004.

Qualification

Several qualification tournaments were held to determine the participating nations.[3]

Venues

The tournament was held in five venues across five cities:

Seeding

Originally, the tournament was planned to form two groups of five teams in the group stage, then play a knockout stage by four teams (two top teams in each group).[4] The format is later changed: the tournament is to form three groups of three or four teams in the group stage, then play a knockout stage by eight teams (two top teams in each group and two best third-placed teams from three groups).[5]
