The Dental Health Foundation welcomes UEFA's decision to make the UEFA Euros a tobacco free event.

UEFA plans to enforce a complete ban on the use, sale or promotion of tobacco in all stadia involved in UEFA EURO 2012. This policy was developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization.

The European Championships are the world's third largest sporting event and it sends a strong message to football fans everywhere, reaffirming the link between football and good health.
