The Evolution of Modern Sports TourismWhat Is Sports Tourism?

Sports Tourism is defined as a specific travel outside of the usual environment for either passive or active involvement in competitive sport where sport is the prime motivational reason for travel and the touristic or leisure element may act to reinforce the overall experience. Another definition worth noting explains sport tourism as a combination of sports activities and travel.

From a sport marketing and sport management perspective, it consists of two broad categories of products: a) sports participation travel (travel for the purpose of participating in a sports, recreation, leisure or fitness activity); and b) sports spectatorial travel (travel for the purpose of spectating sports, recreation, leisure or fitness activities or events).

With its remarkable growth, the World Tourism Organization (WTO) recognizes that sports tourism is now an emerging market.The Evolution of Modern Sports Tourism Indeed, over the past twenty years, the interest in sport especially elite sporting events has grown at a phenomenal rate.

Sports tourism events at the international, national and regional levels have a double-barreled effect – the direct effect of the attendance of the competitors and/or spectators and accompanying persons, and the indirect effect of the marketing of the destination which lead to the subsequent tourism flows. This indirect effect can be very large – most of the tourism benefits of big sporting events are expected to be of this nature. United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced on November 11, 2004 that the UN General Assembly has proclaimed 2005 to be the “International Year for Sport and Physical Education” and encouraged all Member States to cultivate the International Year to show the value of sports for peace and development.

Chicago Image project

2007-02-26 21:36:10 by claw_of_archimedes

Hey everyone! I go to School at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and am currently enrolled in an urban geography class. Our current project is to begin to define an image of the city of Chicago. Our group chose a cultural angle based on what travel sites and other tourist sites touted as Chicago's premier cultural attractions. They boiled down to these groups (see below). I'd really appreciate some help on this one. The weather here is really NOT facilitating the interviewing strategy I had in mind. It's a really quick survey - the first thing that pops into your head. It doesn't matter if you're a resident, a visitor or live in an entirely different country

  • Avatar Bill G Should I travel to South Africa?
    Mar 23, 2010 by Bill G | Posted in South Africa

    I'm taking a year out from 'the real world' to travel around the world, and I had considered going to South Africa. Does anybody out there who has lived or been to South Africa have any thoughts on the matter?

    One thing that concerned me is that, with the world cup coming up, woul …erhaps because of Russia's hostility towards outide visitors, places like the Kremlin and st Basil's cathedral retain a certain vestige which the massive tourist sites in India lack. So, I wonder how the state of affairs will be in South Africa, and if anyone can tell me, that would be grrreat.

    • The state of affairs in South Africa is pretty good. I dont really know what you are worried about. Sure with the 2010 coming up, the country is going to be a little more hectic than it normally is. South Africa is a beautiful place, with lots of places to see and tons of things to do. Extremel …e hang were you thinking of. I am a very proud born and bred South African. Google Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London, Durban. I dont like Johannesburg, although it is huge and known as the City of Gold. Very fast, very busy and very big. You will be sorry if you miss the opportunity. Enjoy
