Before explaining what exactly sports tourism is, it’s important to find the definition of leisure tourism.  Leisure tourism can be defined in different forms where not only it describes to relax and rest as a main purpose of holiday.

Sports Tourism is also categorised as leisure tourism, but it involves taking up sport tours which means visiting sporting events in other countries. This could be done by taking a holiday or a short break, in order to either participate in a sport or to watch it.

What does not define a sports tourism is when people are on a beach holiday and play a one-off sport.
