OTHER MAJOR COMPETITIONS
There has been a football tournament at every Summer Olympic Games since 1900, except at the 1932 games in Los Angeles. Originally, the event was for amateurs only, however, since the 1984 Summer Olympics professionals have been permitted as well. Currently, the Olympic men's tournament is played at Under-23 level.
After the World Cup, the most important football competitions are the continental championships, which are organised by each continental confederation and contested between national teams. These are the European Championship (UEFA), the Copa América (CONMEBOL), African Cup of Nations (CAF), the Asian Cup (AFC), the CONCACAF Gold Cup (CONCACAF) and the OFC Nations Cup (OFC).
The most prestigious competitions in club football are the respective continental championships, which are generally contested between national champions, for example the UEFA Champions League in Europe and the Copa Libertadores de América in South America.
