Participants

The tournament attracted a record 11 entries, all of them from Europe. France and Belgium withdrew from the event shortly before the draw. The entry of Bohemia was not accepted, because only nations and associations affiliated to the FIFA were allowed to enter teams. The Football Association entered an England national amateur team to represent Englandmarker.

A total of 135+28 footballers from 11 nations competed at the Stockholm Games:

Amateur definitions

The definition for the football competition was:

An amateur is one:

  • who has never competed for money prize, or received any remuneration or Consideration of any sort above his necessary hotel and travelling expenses, paid in actual connection with football matches;
  • who has never engaged, assisted, or taught, in any branch of sport as a means of pecuniary gain;
  • who has never been registered as a professional;
  • who has never sold, pawned, hired out, or exhibited for payment, any prize won in a competition.


Course of the tournament

In the first round of the tournament, the hosts from Sweden went out in the opening match against the Netherlands. Fighting back from a 1-3 deficit with half an hour to go, Sweden only lost 4-3 on a goal scored by Dutch player Jan Vos in the extra time of the English referee. At Idrottsplats Traneberg, Austrian football pioneer Hugo Meisl was the referee as Finland beat Italy also in extra time.

In the second round, Finland won again, this time beating Russia, who had received a bye in the first round. By this stage, the England team entered the contest, drawn to play against Hungary at Idrottsplats Råsundamarker. England was captained by Vivian Woodward, a record-scoring centre-forward from Chelsea, who had formed part of England's gold medal winning side of the 1908 Summer Olympicsmarker. Lead by forward Harold Walden, who scored six goals, England convincingly defeated Hungary with 7-0.

In the semi-final round, Walden scored all four goals, as England defeated Finland 4-0. In the other semi-final Denmark beat the Netherlands 4-1; the Dutch consolation goal put behind goalkeeper Sophus Hansen by Danish defender Harald Hansen. For the second successive time, the final would pair England with Denmark, and like in 1908, the team representing England would win gold medals, although this game would be closer than the 4-2 score-line suggested. With no rule allowing substitutions, Denmark played with one player less from the 30th minute of the game, when Charles Buchwald was injured.

A consolation tournament run, conjunctively, with the tournament proper paired the losers of the preliminary games and the first round, and was eventually won by Hungary. German player Gottfried Fuchs equalled the record for most goals in an international (set by Dane Sophus Nielsen in the 1908 Olympics) with 10 goals for Germany against Russia, a record that stood until 2001.
