Focus on Youth, Football & Alcohol
FYFA is a joint initiative aiming to reduce underage drinking and heavy episodic drinking among young people, as both strongly affect the health and welfare of Europe’s population.
Excluding tobacco and caffeine, alcohol is the psychoactive substance used most by young people in the European Union. Underage drinking and heavy episodic drinking of alcohol is of particular concern in Europe because it is related to the health and welfare of the population. A number of studies have linked alcohol use by young people to various problems, both short and long term.
