Beginning with group matches and ending with a knockout phase, the competition will offer all the drama that fans have come to expect from major international tournaments.
There will be two medal events at London 2012, one for men’s teams and one for women. Football was introduced as a medal sport at the 1908 Olympic Games.
Great Britain won the gold medal, then successfully defended their title four years later in Stockholm.
The sport has featured at every Olympic Games since, with the exception of Los Angeles 1932.
St James' park will host a total of nine matches, including a quarter-final in both the men's and women's competitions.
