The aim of this paper is to determine the resources and competitive factors of sport tourism suitable for tourism business circumstances. For this paper and according to accessible and processed sources, had not been found research that determines and treats the concept of sport comprehensively, by the sub-areas of sport. Sport tourism in theory represents a selective form of tourism and should be based, in accordance with contemporary trends, on comparative competitiveness and sustainable development. Sustainable development includes a wide range of relevant platforms. These platforms influence the sustainable planning of sport tourism supply. The question is what are the resources and factors that are important for the planning of sport-tourism supply and fit into comparative competitiveness and sustainable development? The practical and theoretical purpose of this paper is the determination of resources and factors important for the planning and development of sport tourism in those destinations that want to develop this form of selective tourism. In these destinations, such created supply of sports and recreational amenities and facilities should result in an increase in consumption. Previously defined resources and factors should be the basis for the planning of the overall development of a particular destination and, consequently, for the decision-making process on potential investment engagements. Such structural changes should also be reflected on the structure of the supply and potentially define changes in the guests’ structure/profile and their demand or consumption. Thus, in this paper determined resources and factors, if applied, should affect directly or indirectly the planning and decisions development in each particular destination.
