This course examines the relationship between sport travel and the tourism industry. As more people choose to travel to attend or participate in sporting events, a branch of the hospitality and tourism industry has developed to focus on the needs of these clients. Youth sport tourism, for example, has become a $7 billion industry in the United States alone. The study of sports tourism draws upon the disciplines of management, finance, economics, event planning and marketing.
