YOG Football Team Draw Results

With the World Cup 2010 just days away, let me whet your appetite for soccer with football-related news. No it's not footballing news about England, Spain or Brazil or any of the other football powerhouses involved in the 2010 World Cup. It is news on football from the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games that will be held in August 2010.

As a result of a decision by the IOC and Singapore YOG, the Youth Olympic Games football finals will see youngsters from countries outside the traditional soccer nations playing in Singapore.

That is why you will see countries like Singapore (SIN), Bolivia (BOL), Montenegro (MNE),  Vanuatu (VAN), Zimbabwe (ZIM) and a team from Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) playing in the Youth Olympic Games men football finals.

As a unique feature at the Singapore Youth Olympic Games football finals, all women teams from Chile (CHI), Equatorial Guinea (GEQ), Papua New Guinea (PNG), Iran (IRI), Trinidad and Tobago (TRI), and Turkey (TUR)will also be represented in the soccer finals.
 
The results of the YOG football team draw results were released on 18 May 2010.

The Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC) and the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) announced the Football team draw results for the first-ever Youth Olympic Games (YOG).

The YOG Football competition will comprise Men and Women football team events.

The six football teams per event will be divided into two groups of three for the preliminaries. Each football team will play every other team in the group once.
