FOOTY 9s AT THE OLYMPICS

Can Footy 9s become an Olympic sport?

Absolutely. It’s not going to happen overnight and we must hold a long-time view. But yes, it can be done.

Just look at Rugby 7s. World Rugby has done a great job in getting a modified version of rugby into the Olympics. A whole generation of young people from all over the world saw Rugby 7s being played in Rio. The possibility of playing in the Olympics will be a great carrot for them to take up a new sport.
