Heritage tourism destinations : preservation, communication and development
Alvarez M.D., Go F.M., Yüksel A.
This chapter analyses the relation between heritage and sports events and more specifically how heritage sporting events (HSE) might be an interesting option for the sustainable development of territories engaged in sports events hosting strategies. The chapter begins with an exploration of the relation between heritage and sport. A multidisciplinary literature review is conducted to identify HSE's characteristics, which leads to a definition of this emerging concept. Implications for both academics and public authorities are discussed at the end of this chapter.
