Teams participating in the men's competition are restricted to U-23 players (born on or after 1 January 2001) with a maximum of three overage players permitted. Following a study on the late athlete replacement (LAR) policy for football and other team sports, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had decided to amend the current policy. Ap-accredited athletes may replace Aa-accredited athletes for medical reasons. The replaced player may in turn return to the team to replace an Aa-accredited athlete once their medical condition allows it. The alternate players shall be numbered 19 to 22, with the number 22 being reserved for the alternate goalkeeper. Dominican Republic, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Guinea will all make their debuts in the men’s tournament, while world champions Spain are a new face in the women’s competition.
