The STAD research team just published an article in PlosOne describing results from a baseline measurement where Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)-levels from 4420 spectators visiting matches in the Swedish Premier Football League have been collected. The results reveal that almost half of all spectators have consumed alcohol with a mean value of 0.065%. Almost 9% had a BAC-level of 0.1% or more indicating a high level of intoxication.

The research team concludes that there is a need to develop and implement the STAD-approach to alcohol prevention at Swedish football arenas.
