In addition to these activities, 2 surveys have been carried out:

1. Survey on environmental awareness of football supporters: so far, around 1500 questionnaires have been distributed to supporters/spectators during high level football matches that took place in Italian and Swedish pilot stadiums, in order to assess their environmental awareness/behaviour.

2. Survey on environmental management of football club and stadium managers/owners, in order to investigate the extent of adoption of environmental management practices, the drivers and the benefits or expected benefits associated with the adoption of environmental practices in stadiums.
