Modern studies of sport tourism are present-centred, their theory and methodology dominated by sports marketing and sports management disciplines, and focusing on a multitude of activities, destinations and site that reflect the economic importance of sport in contemporary society. In Britain, by the 1990s, sport accounted for approximately 2 per cent of all workers and contributed substantially to Britain's G.D.P. About 20 per cent of trips in Britain then related to sports participation and about 50 per cent had a sports component.
