NBC Universal has complete coverage of both the men’s and women’s soccer tournaments taking place across Japan as part of this summer’s Tokyo Olympics. For complete Spanish-language coverage, see the full Telemundo coverage schedule.

The action begins July 21 – two days before the Opening Ceremony – with the first matchday of the women’s group stage. The United States Women’s National Team takes on Sweden, the same nation that eliminated them in a shocking Rio 2016 quarterfinal upset.

The following day, Group D of the men’s competition kicks off with another tantalizing Rio rematch. Brazil again meets Germany five years after triumphing in a memorable gold medal match on home soil.
