Jacques Rogge, former president of the IOC initiated the European Olympic Youth Festival in 1991, because he wanted to give a chance to young athletes to compete internationally under Olympic conditions, and he wanted to give them that opportunity to do it as soon as possible.
He thinks that sport events like this one have a positive purpose, because it promotes friendship and sports of course. It is really important for young people to learn more about team spirit, friendship and respect, that’s why this competition is really important.

The European Youth Olympic Festival is organized by the European Olympic Committee, and it is under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee.
