Preliminary round[edit]

The IOC's rules allowed only one German team to enter. After talks for a Unified Team broke down, the football federations and NOCs of West and East Germany agreed to organise a play-off between their teams. Both matches were agreed to be played without spectators, and the sites of the games were announced at short notice.[1]
