The purpose of this template is to collect source text used in several articles in one place, in order to minimize maintenance and storage space. This is the Great Britain roster in the men's football tournament of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The template is typically used in two articles: the article covering Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Olympics, and the article covering the rosters of all participating teams of the tournament.

The following is the Great Britain squad in the men's football tournament of the 2012 Summer Olympics.[1]

As part of an agreement with the FA, no players from England's Euro 2012 squad were selected. However, an agreement was made to allow Jack Butland to play on both squads. Butland, a late injury replacement for the Euro 2012 team, did not play in the tournament as England's third goalkeeper, and was allowed to keep his Olympic roster spot.
