We focused in this study on the linear relationships among satisfaction with setting attributes, revisit intention, and place attachment, and also investigated the role of place attachment as a mediator in the relationship between setting attributes and revisit behavioral intention. Sports tourists (N = 294) who participated in triathlon events were recruited using convenience sampling and completed questionnaires. The empirical results revealed that satisfaction with setting attributes positively affected place attachment, which positively affected revisit intention. Satisfaction with setting attributes exerted a positive influence on revisit intention. Place attachment was found to be a significant mediator in the relationship between satisfaction with setting attributes and revisit intention. Our results can be used as a basis for improving and advancing sports tourism strategies to create a competitive advantage.
