Sports logistics represents the intersection between the field of (sport) event management and logistics management and refers to efficient and effective logistics activities behind any sports event. The relatively new concept of sports logistics can be regarded as an emerging research stream and focuses on four sports logistics pillars: first, venue logistics management, e.g. ticketing, security and hospitality, second, fan and spectator logistics management, e.g. existing and to be developed infrastructure and transportation systems, third, athletes logistics management, e.g. travel, coaching and management entourage); and, fourth, equipment logistics, e.g. logistics services and transport of required goods. So far, logistics research has received only little attention, however, given that sport event managers increasingly rely on more complex and sophisticated logistics management practices, it will assume new importance in the future of sports event planning and execution.
