The World health Organization (WHO) is proposing that this summer's European Championships should be a smoke-free one. 
The Polish office of the WHO wants Euro 2012 fan zones in Poland and Ukraine to ban smoking in a concerted attempt to promote a more healthy lifestyle amongst football fans.

In October 2011 UEFA placed a total ban on the promotion and sale of tobacco in relation to this year's tournament.

While the initial reaction to the WHO proposal has generally been positive, the final decision on whether to ban smoking in the Euro 2012 fan zones rests with the policy-makers in each of the eight host cities.
