Abstract: This study went through four stages to identify and analyze evaluation items to select a location for a sports complex. Stage 1 reviewed the theories of location selection and evaluation items. Stage 2 identified items of location selection based on major cases and chose main evaluation items based on previous studies and literature. Stage 3 sorted out the items by the evaluation areas based on the analysis results from the first two stages. The last stage estimated the importance of the final evaluation items. The analysis results show that access recorded the highest importance, followed by economy, balanced development, sports infrastructure, usability of local resources, environmental performance and land use in that order.
