The International Federation of American Football (IFAF) is stepping up its campaign to add flag football to the Los Angeles 2028 Games. Unsurprisingly, it is turning to the NFL to help with its strategy. The two parties announced on Wednesday 7 September the creation of a team of flag football ambassadors designed to “champion, amplify and support the long-term growth of the game worldwide.” The seven-person team is led by three NFL players: Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson; Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp; and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. According to the joint release from IFAF and the NFL, several other players, legends of the game and coaches will join the team of ambassadors throughout the 2022 professional football league season.
