Paying more attention to the promotion of income generation rate in the country and the importance and status of sport tourism in this regard is now more necessary than ever. This study aims at identifying and prioritizing the barriers to the development of sport tourism in Iran and finding a structural-interpretive model for theses barriers. The study is an applied research in terms of purpose and is a combined one in terms of approach that is the statistical population of the study was both qualitative and quantitative. The qualitative population (N=15) consisted of experts in tourism, sport tourism, and sport management and the statistical population at the quantitative level included coaches and referees, competition officials and organizers, senior tournament managers, players, and spectators who were selected randomly from a stratified sample of 379 people. First, a comprehensive review of research literature and some interviews with experts in the filed were carefully carried out and then the barriers to sport tourism in Iran were determined on the basis of the structural- interpretive modeling method. Data collecting tools were interviews and two questionnaires. According to the results, 8 barriers were identified as the most important ones. Governmental and legal barriers as well as infrastructural weaknesses were identified as the most important barriers to the development of Iranian sport tourism. Then on the basis of the structural-interpretive model, the relationships between these barriers were identified and analyzed, and by means of Mic-Mac analysis the effects of the barriers were determined. It was proved that the government and legal barriers have the influence of 8 that is the highest level of impact on other barriers of the development of sport tourism. The results of the current study can help the policy makers make better and smarter decisions in order to find the best ways to develop this industry.
