At the first side, Tobacco policies do not seem to interact directly with the following policies: Economics of Sports, Integrity of Sports, Sports, Role of Sports into Society, Sport in International Cooperation and External Relations, per se. The limited role in Sports that European Commission has been well established during the time, whilst the EUTPD has been acting as a directive which ensured great protection for the EU citizens in every country. Analyzing the impact of both policies in different EU countries based on specific criteria will allow to distinguish progress and identify the synergies which can be in the future strengthened at a national level. Reviewing what these policies have in common will facilitate a great transition towards a better collaboration for policy makers in tobacco and sports which might lead to better internal coordination and implementation of practical activities. The final aim of the paper is to have a clearer view of the impact of these policies, and if this match has indeed help at the development of public health and sports.
