    Abstract

    This study is a research project that focus on the opportunities offered by sport tourism to invigorate local regions in a global context. Primary research data were collected through a Delphi method applied to a panel of 20 international experts on sport tourism worldwide. The results reveal that, in order to grow and become a development tool in tourism destinations, sport tourism activities need to be organised in close cooperation with sport and tourism agencies, decision makers and the local community. Moreover, that the cooperation between agencies of tourism and sport is essential to ensure the success of a sport tourism destination.
