EYOF means European Youth Olympic Festival
The first edition of the EYOF (when it was called European Youth Olympic Days, eyof) took place in 1991 in Brussels. The EYOF is a biennial multi-sporting event for young athletes. The eyof is the only European multi sporting event and has both a summer edition and a winter edition. In 9 different Olympic disciplines (athletics, basketball, judo, tennis, volleyball, handball, gymnastics, cycling and swimming) young athletes go for the good, it's a taste for the real Olympics. The EYOF was founded from the Olympic Mind: a philosophy that raises and combines the qualities of body, willpower and spirit. Sport is mixed with culture and education and thus leads to the Olympic values: friendship, respect and Excel.
