NFL VP of football operations Troy Vincent said the league’s goal is to make flag football an Olympic sport and the 2028 game in Los Angeles could be an opportunity for American football to showcase the game on a world stage.

“That’s the ultimate goal to make flag football an Olympic sport,Vincent told the Associated Press, via Pro Football Talk.

“When we talk about the future of the game of football, it is, no question, flag,” Vincent said. “When I’ve been asked over the last 24 months, in particular, what does the next 100 years look like when you look at football, not professional football, it’s flag. It’s the inclusion and the true motto of ‘football for all.’ There is a place in flag football for all.”
