On 4 and 5 October 2018, the Institute of Management of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, lead partner of TACKLE, hosted the kick off meeting of the project TACKLE, financed by the LIFE programme of the European Commission. It was attended by all other partners: the Italian, Romanian and Swedish National Football Associations, Euractiv, as well as ACR+ and two its members, LIPOR and AMIU.

The three-year long TACKLE project aims at improving the environmental management of football matches and the overall level of awareness and attention toward environmental issues in the football sector. TACKLE will develop a set of Environmental Management Guidelines to be tested in some of the stadiums that will host matches of the forthcoming European Football Championship.

Key methods and approaches to adopt in the first activities of the project were already discussed during the fruitful kick off meeting. ACR+, in addition to working on the development of Environmental Management Guidelines, will conduct the pilot testing phase, supporting stadium managers in the application of the Guidelines during sports events.
