Football arenas are one of the most frequently visited mass gatherings in our time. It is known that spectators at football arenas have increased cardiac risk due to emotional excitement during the games. This position paper from the Sport Cardiology Section of the EACPR is a follow-up of the mapping of the cardiovascular preparedness at European football arenas (1) and sets standards for arena cardiovascular care related to cardiac events both in spectators and athletes. To ensure optimal implementation of the chain of survival, the paper emphasises the need for a written detailed medical action plan and availability of automated external defibrillators. Also, estimate numbers of necessary health personnel are given. In addition to provide an important community medicine contribution to decrease sudden cardiac death in the society, the paper should be of special interest for sports event and other mass gathering organisers across Europe, especially to assist in the planning of the mass gatherings.
