Background. Many countries worldwide use sports events as a tool to stimulate both their national and local economies. To gain a competitive advantage, knowledge of sports event success is essential for stakeholders and hosting countries. However, due to the diverse conceptualizations of event success, the knowledge of the issue is fragmented, and there is a lack of comprehensive studies for scholars and event practitioners. This article aims to review the key success factors (KSFs) of sports events based on the resource-based view (RBV) theory to fill this knowledge gap. Methods. A systematic review is used to analyze the KSFs of sports event management. Results. Our findings from 42 peer-reviewed papers indicate that organizational and reputational resources seem to play the most critical roles in sports event management success. Conclusion. The conceptual framework representing the KSFs of sports event management based on the RBV theory is presented. Moreover, several themes for future research on this issue are also suggested.
