Tobacco Free Stadia Guidance

Why Tobacco-free Stadia?

Sports clubs and sports facilities have a lot to gain from adopting and enforcing a tobacco free stadia policy prohibiting the use, sale and promotion of any type of tobacco product within a stadium environment.

A well enforced tobacco control policy protects fans, staff, players and guests from the acute health hazards of exposure to second-hand smoke, as well as guarding against potential fire hazards, lowering cleaning costs and de-normalising any remaining association between sport and tobacco.

Tobacco Free Stadia Guidance

The primary reason for adopting a tobacco free stadia policy is to protect stadium users and staff from the acute dangers of secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure. Adopting and enforcing a policy eliminating second-hand smoke and prohibiting the use, sale and promotion of tobacco products at your stadium is one of the most important steps you can take to protect the health and safety of fans and members of staff within the stadium environment.

To assist clubs and stadium operators in the development of a tobacco control policy we have developed Tobacco-Free Stadia Guidance available to download for free:

Although the benefits of a tobacco-free stadium policy are now well acknowledged, many clubs and stadium operators are disempowered by a lack of robust national legislation preventing smoking in enclosed and semi-enclosed spaces.

However, even in counties with weaker tobacco control laws that do not apply to stadium setting, stadium operators have the right to go beyond legislation by integrating a strict smoke-free or tobacco-free policy into a stadium’s ground regulations.

Enforcement Training

We have also developed a simple Enforcement Training Module to help train frontline staff such as stewards, security personnel and volunteers as part of an integrated enforcement plan.

Case Studies

A hugely successful Tobacco-Free Policy was implemented at UEFA EURO 2016 in France – a country with relatively weak tobacco control laws. Click the link below to download the case study.
