The traditional beach holiday is still number one with British tourists but trips to a resort hosting a sporting event are growing in popularity as holidaymakers seek to mix the two together. 2007 promises to be the biggest year yet for sport event holidays, with the destinations hosting them receiving a considerable boost to tourism. Matthew Flint, Director of directline-holidays.co.uk has noticed the sharp increase in interest from customers. “We have always experienced demand for activity holidays like skiing and mountain biking holidays, but in recent years our call centre handles an increasing number of requests where the sport available is at least as important as the dining options or the quality of the beach.”

directline-holidays.co.uk anticipates the 5 countries most likely to benefit from sport seeking tourists in 2007:

1. France
France is ‘numéro un’ in 2007 for luring sport hungry tourists to its shores due to the simplicity in getting there combined with the amount and quality of events on show. Paris hosts the tennis French Open, the final stage of Le Tour de France as well as Le Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe whilst motor racing enthusiasts are anticipating Le Mans 24 hour. The French Grand Prix near Bourges is also proving popular. However the Rugby World Cup is the biggest lure in 2007 with games taking place all over France, thus ensuring traditional French holidays can be combined with this sporting spectacle.

2. Italy
Italy holidays are full of tradition, culture and fascinating history, but the lure of annual sporting events such as the Tuscany Moto GP and the F1 Grand Prix in La Monza of the Lombardy region are proving irresistible for sport fans. Italian football gained many admirers with the Azzuri being crowned World Champions and the fiercely competitive Milan & Rome derbies respectively are the pick of the domestic fixtures for Italian holidays.

3. USA
With an NFL game scheduled for London in October and Superbowl XLI enjoying strong coverage, US sports are growing in popularity. A lucky few made it to Miami for a Florida holiday but the biggest attractions in 2007 arrive later in the year. Las Vegas holidays in June are popular with boxing fans keen to see Ricky Hatton fight Castillo whilst US Open tennis in August & September is proving popular – almost certainly owing to its New York locality.

4. Spain
In 2007 Spain holidays are proving to be not just popular for sun-seekers, but also for sporting enthusiasts. Valencia boasts the Spanish Moto GP and the Americas Cup, whilst vibrant Barcelona offers the F1 Grand Prix as well as El Classico in the Camp Nou between Barcelona & Real Madrid.

5. Caribbean
The Caribbean provides virtually everything you could possibly want from a holiday, and in sporting terms it’s not quantity its quality. Holidaymakers are looking to soak up not just the sun, sea and sand, but also the cricket during the ICC World Cup.
