Northern Flickers and Sparrows

Good day,
This is my first post.
I have just finished a Northern Flicker nest box, and now have started wondering if House Sparrows will be a problem. Anyone dealt with this issue?
Thanks,
Bob

I’ve watched starlings evict flickers from their nests on a number of occasions but haven’t had any experience with House Sparrows doing so (FWTW).
