Joint Statement: LA28 Olympic Proposal
10 October 2023
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – The British Baseball Federation and British Softball Federation look forward to the announcement of the 2028 LA Olympic Programme in the coming days and are excited by the proposal submitted yesterday. 9 October, by the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee that includes Baseball and Women’s Fastpitch Softball.
The proposal still needs to be ratified by the IOC Executive on 12 October and by a full meeting of the IOC on 16 October, with both meetings taking place in Mumbai.
With both the Great Britain Baseball and Women’s Fastpitch Teams holding silver medals from their most recent European Championship, we are eager to play against the world’s best teams at every opportunity.
Both programmes are on the right trajectory to compete in major competitions in the long term and with interest at the grassroots level in Great Britain growing in both sports, with participation nearly doubling since 2009, we are very excited for the future of British baseball and softball.
