The EYOF (European Youth Olympic Festival) is the largest sports festival for young athletes between 14 and 18 years. The organization of the winter and summer festival is organized every two years. EYOF is part of the European Olympic Committee that has exclusive rights to the event as the International Olympic Committee. The EYOF has all the characteristics of the Olympic Charter, which includes Olympic flames, oaths and flags. The host of the EYOF 2019 Winter Youth Festival are the cities of Sarajevo and East Sarajevo, which founded the limited liability company "EYOF 2019 Ltd".The EYOF 2019 currently has 12 permanent employees, and the Executive Committee consists of 17 sector (including their managers and assistants).

BEYOF 2019 is financed directly from the public sector budget (the Ministry, the Canton Government of Sarajevo, the Council of Ministers, the Republika Srpska Government and the budgets of the two cities: Sarajevo and East Sarajevo).

These budgets are a clear indication to the European Olympic Committee that our state, or the line ministries of sport, make evident efforts to close the financial structure of the Project and are very close to it.

Olympic Day-EYOF 2019 was promoted on the Olympic Day organized by the Olympic Committee of BiH and the Faculty of Sport and Physical Education.
