The British Olympic Association will be participating in the Olympics to be held in London with the Team GB in the summer of 2012. The team head coach is presently Stuart Pearce. He was allowed to select players from across the United Kingdom. However, the national FAs of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland oppose the selection of their players for the team, fearing that their independence status may be compromised with one Great Britain team. The summer Olympics football tournament is for players under 23 years of age, but the team can have 3 players older than 22.
Team GB will play two friendlies ahead of the summer tournament, and will be playing their group stage matches on the 26th July, 29th July and 1st August. The kit to be used in the competition has been unveiled. Jack Rodwell and Fraizer Campbell can be seen modelling the shirt. The shirt is manufactured and supplied by Adidas. The shirt features an enlarged Great Britain flag with a blue tone. The collar and sleeve hems are red. The complementary shorts are navy blue, and so are the socks, with the latter having red bands.
