Sport facilities have a major environmental impact in addition to a strong public profile and social responsibility. Big facilities, as football stadiums, over different life cycles use resources like energy, water, and materials; need transport; and have many other environmental, social, and economic impacts. Progressive sports and facilities managers are more conscious of their responsibilities to reduce energy, water usage, and waste production and not only to reduce environmental impacts which may also reduce costs. This chapter analyzes how environmental and sustainable solutions are being considered at sport facilities and organizations like FIFA and UEFA and in what way to assess and apply presently a specific approach designated as Dynamic Management System for Sustainability in Sport Facilities (DM3S). Football sport international organizations like FIFA and UEFA have assumed an environmental awareness and progressive change from green approaches to sustainable search. This chapter presents an analysis of ten Euro 2004 Portuguese football stadiums, especially FC Porto Stadium with DM3S highlighting the best performance and opportunities and improvements and also the utility of the approach. A comparison with other international old and newer stadiums also shows an evolution in sport facilities environmental design and management. Sport facilities have a role in identifying sustainability and in beginning to search for a broader view and a more efficient approach which can be multidimensional and must consider all life cycle.
