The implementation of the principles of sustainable development in sport has been recommended and emphasized by the International Olympic Committee. The purpose of this study was to identify the dimensions and components of this category and to develop a sustainable development model for Iranian sport.  This is a descriptive-survey research that uses basic conceptual model design and four basic dimensions (approach, managerial / social, cultural / environmental, health / economic) and 21 components (goal) to determine validity. The model reliability and fit were estimated. The basic model of the research was tested and tested using SEM using Smart PLS2 software. The model was then fitted at three levels: the fitting of the measurement model, the fitting of the structural model, and the general fitting of the model (GOF). The results showed that "environmental / health dimension"  had the most effect on the sustainable development pattern of sport in the country. Then "approach / management" and then "social / cultural dimension" and finally "economic dimension" on development Sustainable sport affects the country. R2 value (0.9765) indicates pattern confirmation. Both indices in all four constructs were positive and greater than zero (common = 0.6432) and redundancy (0.344) resulting in overall fit of measurement model (good quality of measurement model) and structural model (high ability of structural model in predicting) Approved. The overall fit of the model was set to 0.6255, indicating a strong fit to the overall model. Among the goals, the highest weight belonged to "Commitment to sporting events to the principles of sustainable development" (0.88) and the lowest weight belonged to "Fighting social exclusion" (0.41).The model presented for the principles of sustainable sport development in Iran is based on the Agenda 21 Olympic Movement and Rio Statement.
