In Tokyo Olympic soccer, video retrieval (VAR) is performed during the match. Up to 5 players can be substituted. The International Football Federation (FIFA) held a meeting with the participating countries on the 19th and introduced the rules for the operation of the game. The introduction of VAR is the first Olympic Games. Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), up to five players can be substituted, and one additional player can be substituted in overtime from the quarterfinals. In a situation where there is a risk of infection with COVID-19, the game will be held if there are at least 13 out of 18 entries for each team. The confirmed person will be treated at a separate facility, and close contacts should be quarantined outside the dormitory until the gene amplification (PCR) test is negative. In addition, it was decided that the Korean national soccer team will wear red top and bottom uniforms in all three group matches. The Kashima Stadium, where the first two matches of the group stage will be held, will have 200 students living in the area.
