The White Paper on Sport (2007) analyses the phenomenon of doping, seen as a “worldwide threat” to sport, including in Europe. At a European level, the fight against doping must hinge on different dimensions: repression, health and prevention. The leading role, internationally, goes to WADA (Word Anti-Doping Agency), founded in public-private partnership, created by the will of the IOC (International Olympic Committee) in 1999 in Lausanne to coordinate the fight against doping in sport. Among the most important organizations in Europe that are committed to the fight against doping without a doubt the UEFA Union of European Football Associations, the administrative, organizational and European football’s control, has a primary role. The UEFA control program is already one of the world’s best in team sports, but now it will enter a new dimension with the introduction of the so-called Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) in the official anti-doping program.
