    Sorry for the off-topic, but I find this sub-forum unexpectedly empty: what about the previous pre-2016 Olympic threads? Especially London 2012's one? o_O

    Will the 2024 Olympics up the amount of teams to 16? Especially with the World Cup up to 32 teams now.

    Yeah, and I don't see why the OG slots would related to the WC slots anyway. Honestly, the only reason why the women's OG football tournament is treated as remotely similar to the WWC is because people expect their to be a second senior-team competition, but with FIFA dropping the men's confed cup, I would not be surprised if the women's OG football tournament is reconfigured soon to also be a youth tournament like the men's OG football tournament. Heck, we haven't heard any details about the women's 2024 tournament yet, I guess it could still happen.

    My understanding was that the OG is actively trying to reduce the number of athletes that participate anyway, as the event is such a burden on the hosts, which is partially why it's been hard to get hosting bids in recent years. And we can see that with the link provided - Paris 2024 is expected to have 10 fewer events and over 500 fewer athletes than Tokyo 2021 will despite adding four new sports.

    I doubt that FIFA has any interest to make the women`s tournament a youth competition. The Olympic Games are seen as a promotion for women`s football and there is no other top competition in the same year unlike in men`s football.

    They will but not until the loss of revenue from the WWC (from having two top torunaments) is worth morw than the free promotion that the Olympic Games gives.
    In other words they will do it but it will probably be a very long time before they do.

    The only way I can see FIFA trying to make the Olympic Games a youth tournament is if they would plan to hold the WWC every 2 years. Otherwise they would have to expect resistance from the players.

    2012 threads are in the 2016 sub-forum, and 2008 has its own sub-forum, for some inexplicable reason.

    Thank you very much, @lil_one: I had uselessly looked for the 2012 thread in Women's International, of course to no avail. :thumbsup:

    My hypothesis is that in 2016 the Olympics' subforum was renamed, but everything from 2012 was left in it: when later the 2016's thread became a sub-forum of a more general Olympic folder, the stuff from 2012 was "forgetten" inside. I'll maybe ask a mod if there is a clean way to separate the 2012's stuff in a new directiory.

    2008, as you point out, doesn't have an easy explanation instead.

    I had actually managed to have a mod answer me and tell me that they would have looked into the problem, but of course I didn't get any other answer in the subsequent three months. :sleep:
