Reuters exclusively reports NFL looks to score touchdown with Olympic flag football

Reuters exclusively reported that the National Football League is throwing its muscle and capital behind a push to get flag football onto the 2028 Olympics program as it looks to grow its global footprint. “Flag can be a path to tackle (football) for some people and it excites countries and communities in the pursuit of Olympic medals so for those reasons we think it is great. It is a way for people to connect with the game and obviously LA 2028 presents a lot of unique factors that are interesting in terms of location in the U.S. and timing,” NFL International chief operating officer Damani Leech told Reuters
