Sports Tourism is defined as travel involving the observation or participation in a sporting event staying apart from their usual environment. It is separated into 2 categories, hard and soft. Hard sports tourism refers to the quantity of people participating at a competitive sporting event (i.e. the Olympic, FIFA World Cup, etc). Soft sports tourism is when the tourist participates in recreational or leisure sporting events (i.e. hiking, boating, etc). With increasing popularity in newer national, international and recreational athletic activities, sporting tourism is constantly evolving.
