European Healthy Stadia® Network

The European Healthy Stadia® Network supports sports clubs, stadia operators and governing bodies of sport to develop health promoting policies and practices at stadia that contribute to improved levels of public health amongst fans, stadia workforces and local communities.

What We Do

The overarching role of the Network is to advocate for sports stadia to become health promoting environments, and to assist stadia in achieving this goal through one-to-one support, guidance documents and case studies of current practice.

We provide a range of guidance documentation for clubs and stadium operators to support the implementation of policies and practices in support of health.

We work with community trusts and charitable foundations attached to professional sports clubs from all over Europe, sharing best practice and designing bespoke projects.

Healthy Stadia has extensive experience of EU projects, supporting delivery through communications and cross-sector networking skills in the fields of public health, sport and physical activity.

Working with the World Heart Federation, and as an associate partner of UEFA’s Football and Social Responsibility Portfolio, we work with clubs and national associations to promote active, healthy lifestyles.
