Football is one of the sports competition at the 1928 summer Olympics in Amsterdam. Playing football was only practiced by the men.

18 countries had registered for the Olympic tournament. Because Estonia (that had drawn in the preliminary round against Spain) withdrew seventeen countries took part.As a result, there was one game in the preliminary round necessary.

The matches were played on 27 May to 13 June, just like the hockey games so even before the official opening of the games on July 28.
