The population of Hungary, similar to the European countries, shows an ageing tendency. The life expectancy at birth and after 65 is growing, as a consequence of which the increased years of life can become meaty besides adequate life quality. An important related area is activity and sports. Accordingly, it can become a priority task to involve the older generations into sport consumption and sport tourism. In their study the authors examine the connections between the attitudes toward sports and sport tourism among the Hungarian population with particular regard to the 50-70 years old people. Based on the results of the survey, carried out within the framework of the project EFOP-3.6.2-16-2017-003: “Cooperative Research Network in Economy of Sport, Recreation and Health”, focusing on the sport consumption habits of the Hungarian population the sport-attitudes and travels by reason of sport of the elderly cohorts are demonstrated. On this basis proposals, sports and public health programmes and sports tourism projects can be drafted, which could level up the consumption and activities of the elderly to a higher level.
