Sport Resolutions Logo

The International Crickey Council is preparing a bid to be included in the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

Cricket was last seen at the Olympic Games in 1900 in Paris with many believing that appearances at the Olympics will increase the sport’s popularity across the world.  ICC chair Greg Barclay said “Our sport is united behind this bid, and we see the Olympics as a part of cricket's long-term future, We have more than a billion fans globally and almost 90 percent of them want to see cricket at the Olympics.” He added “We believe cricket would be a great addition to the Olympic Games, but we know it won’t be easy to secure our inclusion as there are so many other great sports out there wanting to do the same. But we feel now is the time to put our best foot forward and show what a great partnership cricket and the Olympics are.”

The ICC has established an Olympic Working Group which includes former players and governing body chiefs, one member is USA Cricket chief Parag Marathe who said, “With so many passionate cricket fans and players already in the USA, and a huge global audience and following for the sport around the world, we believe that cricket’s inclusion will add great value to the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games.”
