Costa Rican stadium wins first annual global smoke-free award

The Estadio José Rafael "Fello" Meza Ivancovich in Costa Rica is the first winner of the Global Smokefree Stadia Award.

The award was announced on 7 March by The Global Smokefree Partnership. Its goal is to reward stadia worldwide that take steps to protect athletes, fans and workers from second-hand smoke.

Estadio José Rafael "Fello" Meza Ivancovich was the first stadium in Costa Rica and the entire Latin American Region to be declared smoke-free. This happened years before the national government adopted smoke-free legislation.

Framework Convention Alliance is one of the hosts of The Global Smokefree Partnership.
