Best way to do this is to forget about teams altogether. Although the description does say steal from the opposing team it does also (definitely) work in solo as this is how I got it.

If you do it in Pro Tour team there is no option for 2, 3 or 4 teams like there is in Jam Session so you basically have two teams of four people. Therefore there are only four people you can steal off as you cannot steal from your own team. Also once one team has hit the score limit (e.g. 3) the game is over so you have to get it before 5 (1st to 3 is the same as best of 5) flags have been scored. Not easy to do unless you can get a full boosting lobby together which will not be that easy as you can only take your own (max) four man team into Pro Tour team games.

If you go into Pro Team solo you will be able to steal from all seven other people in the game making your chances of getting a steal much greater. Also, as everyone (eight people) is trying to get to the score limit (rather than just two teams) the total number of flags could be a lot higher (e.g. in a 3 to win game you could end up playing 17 flags - 2 for everyone + 1 extra for the winner) so the game goes on a lot longer - again meaning more chances to get the five steals.

Also the other solution implies that you need to steal five different flags - not true. I got it in a solo game before the 2nd flag had been scored as everyone got trapped in a corner and it was passed back & forth multiple times.

A slight variation of this was discovered by yollom69 who said "I got the flag then went to the nearest corner, hand brake turned into it so I was facing outwards and waited for someone to steal off me. As soon as they had I stole it back which is easy as I'm facing outwards and they're not. Head for another corner. Rinse and repeat."
