Football is an important tourism event because of the spectators arriving to watch the organizations and a factor that vitalizes tourism sector with the camps. Other than by football teams, occupancy rates of accommodation facilities are also effected by press members who visit the camp areas to view the teams at least for once or to make news and by spectators who come to watch the matches or the training sessions.
Football tournaments that are organized during the periods when football teams arrive and the world famous teams which are invited to tournaments both make great contributions to the promotion of the region where the football teams are hosted and draw football teams to the region. Also the spectators who wish to watch the teams they support and the press members visit the region as well.
