Five secrets of football!If you know, you can enjoy 100 times!

Why does soccer play before the opening ceremony?

Because there are a lot of matches in the preliminary and final tournaments, the competition is exceptionally started before the opening ceremony because the players cannot rest if they try to play only during the tournament.

The exception to this is softball in addition to football.

What’s that 2, overage?

In principle, up to three athletes over the age of 24 can be registered, although the principle is that they can compete in the Olympics.These three players are called overage.

This was from the 1992 Barcelona Games, and from 26 Atlanta tournaments, three overage slots were created.There are no age restrictions on women’s football.

3, the name of football is rare in the world!

In Japan, we call it football, but when we look at the world, it seems that in most countries, the term “football” is common.

“Football” is a short word for “Association Football”, and the word “soc” which omits the association can be attached to “er” which represents the person. It seems to have become Soccer].

However, in France, Germany, Spain, Brazil and Argentina, including England, where football has traditionally been played, it is simply called football.

4. There is no age rule in women’s soccer.

Men’s football has an overage frame, and although it is played in a mix of veterans and young players, there is no age limit for women’s football.

So women’s football is the same for the Olympics and world cups.

That’s why the status of gold medals at the Olympics is the same as the World Cup.

5. Why is the olympic national uniform blue?

Why blue?Because there were no documents left, there were various theories, and it was not understood that it was clear.

In general, it is “blue of the sea and the sky that symbolizes the land of Japan”, but there is a feeling of retrofit very much.
