Men's tournamentEdit

 
Dutch players warm up for a game at IFCPF Pre Paralympic Tournament Salou 2016, the last major preparation event for the Rio Games.

Netherlands national 7-a-side football team qualified for the Rio Paralympics as a result of the Regional Qualifier Allocation by virtue of being runners-up at 2014 European Championships while being ranked in the top 8 at the 2015 World Championships.[6]

The draw for the tournament was held on May 6 at the 2016 Pre Paralympic Tournament in Salou, Spain. The Netherlands was put into Group B with the United States, Argentina and Russia.[7] Iran qualified for the 2016 Rio Games following the suspension of Russia. The IPC ruled that there could not be a redraw for the groups. This resulted in Iran being put into Group A with the Netherlands, Argentina and the United States.[8]

The tournament where the Paralympic draw took place featured 7 of the 8 teams participating in Rio. It was the last major preparation event ahead of the Rio Games for all teams participating.[9] The Netherlands finished third, after winning 2 - 3 against Great Britain in the 3rd place match.[10]

Going into the Rio Games, the country was ranked fourth in the world.[11]
