Sport promotion

The EPAS aims to promote sport and emphasise its positive values, to establish international standards and develop a framework for a pan-European platform of intergovernmental sports co-operation while at the same time helping the public authorities of member States of the EPAS, sports federations and NGOs to promote sport and make it healthier, fairer and better governed.

Action against spectator violence

The Council of Europe actively fights against spectator violence, particularly in football. In this respect, coordination between the Council of Europe and all States parties to the Convention is necessary.

The principal aim of the convention is to prevent and control violence and misbehaviour by spectators at sports events. It not only provides practical measures on how to prevent and control such violence but also the requisite action to identify and deal with offenders.
