Football was not included on the program at the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, as international football was in its infancy at the time. However, sources claim that an unofficial football tournament was organized during the first competition, in which an Athens XI lost to a team representing Smyrna (Izmir), then part of the Ottoman Empire. However, it is in fact unclear whether any competition took place at all. No such 1896 source supports this and we think this is an error which has been perpetuated in multiple texts.
Tournaments were played at the 1900 and 1904 games and the Intercalated Games of 1906, but these were contested by various clubs and scratch teams. Although the IOC considers the 1900 and 1904 tournaments to be official Olympic events, they are not recognized by FIFA; neither recognizes the Intercalated Games today. Smyrna (one Armenian, two Frenchmen and eight Britons), Athens and Thessaloniki would compete. Denmark won the final against Athens 9–0.
