A sport tournament can be defined as any competition between two or more teams, all of which are taking part in a particular game or sport. More specifically, the word can be used in both of its overlapping senses: as an invigorating competition between rivals; and as a contest between professional competitors. The former meaning applies to any competition between two or more competitors with an interest in a specific sport, while the latter applies only to professional competitions. Competitions can be arranged as national, inter-club, inter-state, inter-regional, inter-professional or even inter-club competitions. These games can also be organised as a single event, like the Olympic Games.
A sport tournament can be a national tournament, because it can be organised by any one country, whether it is it’s official or not. However, there are also regional tournaments, which are organised by different countries. International competitions are the most well-known ones, with a global qualification process. Competitions are sometimes organised by non-governmental organizations (NCOs), who contribute significantly towards the support of the sporting events. The main benefits of these competitions are a platform for the game’s development, a means to improve communication and networking skills, and a source of additional income for the organizers.
Organizers are responsible for the design of the competition, including the cost of equipment, lodging, and marketing of the event. Sometimes, additional sponsors to become involved in the financing of such sports events, providing facilities and marketing to the teams. There are a number of advantages for organising a sport tournament: the expansion of sport and skill, social interaction and community relations, and the development of the sport itself. The success of the event depends mainly on the quality of the teams playing, on the standard of play, on the design and execution of the competition, and on the enthusiasm of the spectators.
