Our long-term objective is to secure the inclusion of Footy 9s in the Olympic Games.

We know this is not going to happen overnight, and a lot of hard work must be done to achieve this goal. Other sports, however, have shown that it can be done.

We are keen to follow in the footsteps of Rugby 7s, which is now an Olympic sport after making its debut at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Footy 9s is similar to Rugby 7s in that an immediate connection is made to the sport, with added reference to the number of players on the field.

The sports market is rapidly changing. Sport climbing, surfing, cricket, flag football and breakdancing have also been included in the Olympic Games in recent times.

Further, the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane are a tremendous opportunity to see Footy 9s included as a demonstration sport.

Playing Footy 9s in Asia is a great opportunity to be involved in what will be a very exciting journey!
