Countries that have traditionally relied on the ‘sand and sea’ to lure tourism are now looking for specialized forms of tourism to expand their tourism market to a non-seasonal one. Sport tourism is a specialized form of tourism growing in Greece. In fact, islands such as Karpathos have realized its potential to expand tourism and have recently completed construction of a new sports stadium for the Pan-Aegean Games of 2002. This paper examines sport tourism as a development tool for the island of Karpathos as a result of hosting the Pan-Aegean Games of 2002. A description of the island of Karpathos and the Pan-Aegean Games is provided. Furthermore, an overview of domestic sport tourism and sport use of the Karpathian National Stadium is also presented.
