The Socceroos and the Olympics

Another major sports event that’s rounding the corner for 2024 is the Paris Olympic Games. If you’re wondering where the Socceroos stand for that competition, it’s a bit of an interesting one.

Since 1992, there has been an age cap put in place for the men’s Olympic football competition, which only allows the team to use three players over the age of 23. Australia’s U-23 national men’s team is the Olyroos, and sadly, the team did not qualify for the games this time around.
