I don't think an official GB team has been announced yet, as the seperate 'home' Football associations are against fielding a GB team. They feel that fielding a GB team will allow FIFA to push for amalgamating the England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland teams for international games.

If a GB team does play, it's likely to be without the player's FA sanctioning it, and could possibly lead to the players being fined and/or suspended for their FA's natrional teams.

There will be a GB olympic football team for both men and women:

To the OP. For you personally to buy tickets officially, you need to apply through the National Olympic Committee of the country where you are resident. Only residents of the UK and certain European countries can buy tickets direct from the London2012 website. Tickets are available until 6th February. At the moment the GB mens game in London is sold out but there are still tickets available for Manchester and Cardiff.

The England FA is sanctioning it.

and the welsh, scottish, and N Irish players can play if they want, their own national FA's cannot fine them as there is no legal leg to stand on in doing so, and would be thrown out by the courts.

If the Welsh FA never pick Gareth Bale or Aaron Ramsey again for playing at the olympics then they're complete dickheads.

I really wanted to watch the GB team in the new Wembley stadium but is it really sold out so quick ? I have family and friends back home in the North East and hopefully they can find someone in one of the local footy leages who can get hands on 2 tickets for wembley.
If anyone has any advice on who to contact etc to get tickets for Wembley please post.
