Esports could feature at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
As The Associated Press reports, Paris Olympic bid committee co-president Tony Estanguet is planning to discuss the matter with esports representatives and the International Olympic Committee.
Estanguet believes that esports must be considered for inclusion so the Olympics will remain relevant for a new generations of fans.
"We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us. It's not about Olympics'," Estanguet said.
"The youth, yes they are interested in esport and this kind of thing. Let's look at it. Let's meet them. Let's try if we can find some bridges.
"I don't want to say 'no' from the beginning. I think it's interesting to interact with the IOC, with them, the esports family, to better understand what the process is and why it is such a success."
The popularity of esports has already seen it confirmed as a medal event at the 2022 Asian Games.
