The football tournament at the 1984 Summer Olympics started on July 29 and ended on August 11. It featured only a men's tournament, as women's football had yet to become an Olympic event. It was the first Olympic football competition in which professionals were allowed. Until then, the amateur-only rule had heavily favored socialist countries from Eastern Europe whose players were professionals in all but name. However, as agreed with FIFA to preserve the primacy of the World Cup, the Olympic competition was restricted to players with no more than five "A" caps at tournament start, regardless of age.

The football tournament was held in four venues:
* Harvard Stadium (Allston, MA)
* Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Annapolis, MD)
* Stanford Stadium (Palo Alto, CA)
* Rose Bowl, (Pasadena, CA)

Qualification

Sixteen teams qualified for the Olympic tournament after continental qualifying rounds. Three Warsaw Pact countries (Czechoslovakia, East Germany, USSR) had qualified on the field but withdrew as part of the Soviet-led boycott. They were replaced with runners-up Italy, Norway, and West Germany.
