The global sports tourism market size is expected to reach USD 2,137.86 billion by 2030. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 17.5% from 2023 to 2030. The growth is fueled by an increase in facilities associated with sports events and mega events such as Olympics, FIFA, and Wimbledon. Sports events of all sizes and types draw tourists as participants or spectators, and locations work to differentiate themselves and offer genuine local experiences by incorporating local flavors into them.

Traveling for sporting events such as a badminton match, yoga retreat, or to surf on beaches is included in sports tourism. Sports tourism includes attending sporting events like a Premier League football game or a Formula One race. Visits to historic sites, such as the Olympic stadium in Barcelona, or to examine artifacts associated with a favorite sports figure, like the museum of the Maracana football stadium in Rio de Janeiro, are forms of sports tourism.

The soccer/football segment of the sports tourism market dominates in terms of sport type, and it is anticipated that it will hold the largest market share during the projection period. American football is the most popular sport in the world. Football has between 390 million and 410 million supporters internationally; the majority of them are in the United States, making it one of the most watched sports in the country. The National Football League (NFL), which consists of 32 clubs split evenly between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference, is the top league in American football (AFC).

Passive tourism is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growing trend of the segment is attributed to the rising preference of millennials and younger adults to travel to various countries, and cities just to watch some of the popular games, or their favorite sportsperson. Additionally, many developing nations are enhancing their infrastructure to draw in more tourists, including Brazil, India, and Sri Lanka. This is anticipated to encourage the expansion of the global sports tourism industry.

Europe held the largest revenue share in 2022. People visit different parts of the globe to attend a variety of sports events and to visit various tourist destinations. Sports-related events, however, are often among the best in Europe for tourists who want to get a sense of the local culture. Europe's stadiums and sporting arenas are constantly crowded with incredible spectacles, from international tournaments and yearly events to individual club games and matches.
