The method of this research is descriptive and survey type and in terms of purpose is applied research. The statistical population of the study consists of managers and specialists in the field of research. In the first stage, the documentary technique was used to develop the framework that requires discovery and interpretation, and in the next step, structural equation modeling was used to design the model more precisely and to complement the details of the model and the effective factor relationships. Descriptive statistics such as frequency distribution with partial least squares (PLS) approach were used for data analysis. The results showed that organizational foresight had an impact on sport structure and system with a coefficient of 0.59. Organizational foresight has a significant effect on sport participation with a coefficient of 0.460. Organizational foresight has significant effect on financing with a coefficient of 0.454. Sport structure and system have a significant effect on sport policy making with a coefficient of 0.287. Sport participation has a significant effect on sport policy making process with a coefficient of 0.555. Financing has no significant effect on sport policy making process with coefficient of 0.013. The GOF value for the research model has an acceptable coefficient (0.326) indicating that the model has a good overall fit.
