The match schedule for the next Men's and Women's Olympic Football Tournaments has been unveiled, with the iconic Maracana stadium set to host both finals. It has also been revealed that the opening game of Rio 2016, which will be the first group game in the women's competition, will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, kicking off at 13.00 local time on Wednesday 3 August.

In total, seven stadiums complete the line-up, with 2014 FIFA World Cup™ host venues in Belo Horizonte, the capital Brasilia, Manaus, Salvador and Sao Paulo all ready to welcome fans from across the world to what promises to be a veritable feast of football.

As at London 2012, the hosts have been drawn as A1 and E1 in their respective tournaments. This means that, during the group stage, the home crowd will be able to cheer on its men in Brasilia and Salvador, and its women in Rio de Janeiro and Manaus.
