Career Outlook

Employment in the Sports Tourism field will grow as public participation in sports continues to increase as a form of entertainment, recreation, and physical conditioning. Job growth will also be driven by the growing number of "baby boomers" approaching retirement who are expected to become more active participants in sports and experienced-based tourism.
