This special issue examines a selection of key impacts and legacies associated with sports events. In doing so, it also investigates some prominent issues, trends and opportunities in the relationship between sport, tourism and events and how, irrespective of whether mega, leisure or community-based sports, event organisers and destination managers can tap the potential to be derived from sports events. The sports events sector has significant growth potential, and while larger-scale events tend to deliver a greater economic return, it is apparent that medium and smaller events can also deliver significant benefits. As participation rates in both sport and events continue to grow, the opportunities relating to sports events that are available to event organisations, other sport event stakeholders and destinations will continue to diversify and expand (Shipway and Fyall, 2012).
