FIFA raises age limit for Tokyo Olympics to 24

FIFA has raised the age limit for the men’s football tournament at the Tokyo Olympics to 24.

The competition is usually for U-23s, but the world football governing body has made the change, following the postponement of the Games.

It would ensure players who were eligible for the Tokyo Olympics this summer, will still be able to take part next year.

Any player born on or after January 1, 1997, will be able to play, alongside three allocated over-aged players.
