Preliminary round

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