Cricket To Be Included In 2028 Olympics

On the inclusion of Cricket in the 2028 Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games, IOC Member Nita Ambani said, “I am delighted that IOC members have voted to include Cricket as an Olympic Sport in the LA Summer Olympics 2028! Cricket is one of the most loved sports globally, and the second most watched. For 1.4 billion Indians, cricket is not just a sport, it's a religion! So I’m delighted that this historic resolution was passed at the 141st IOC Session taking place right here in our country in Mumbai. The inclusion of cricket in the Olympics will create deeper engagement for the Olympic Movement in newer geographies. And at the same time, provides a boost to cricket’s growing international popularity." 

After IOC votes to include Cricket in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics, ICC chairman Greg Barclay said, “It gives us an opportunity to take this fast-growing sport to the biggest sporting stage in the world...I would like to think the sport would hold a permanent spot in the Olympics moving forward.”
