The sports field has been expanded in drastic change during the last two decades in most countries who are hosting international tournaments like Olympic Games, World Cups or World Championship tournaments of different kind of sports and games. As example of these countries is the State of Qatar who hosted couple of GCC, Asian and International tournaments of many sports such as the 17th Arabian Gulf Cup - Doha 2004, The 15thAsian Game – Doha 2016, AFC Asian Cup 2011, 2015 World Men's Handball Championship and others. Moreover, the magnitude of upcoming sport events for any country is playing a big role on the development of sports industry and the infrastructure of the whole country as these events are considered as investment and revenue generated for the country. Subsequently, fulfilling the requirements of International Federations to host these tournaments will impact the construction of infrastructure (transportation, drainage, power substations, treatment plants, etc.), accommodations (Hotels, sports village, etc.) and sports facilities (stadiums, training fields, etc.). The resulting construction complexity, budget and time constraints and number of stakeholders affected by/from these development’ projects increased the needs for the usage of proper project delivery system to achieve the scope of project, deliver on time and proposed budget and prevented any major delay’s causes which may affect the deliverable of such project. The aim and objective of this project is to identify and evaluate the most significant delay’s causes and attributes which affecting the construction industry of sport projects worldwide. The literature part includes the study of delay’s causes related the scope of work, project duration, authorities’ approval, end user interference, consultant and contractor capabilities, etc., in order to define the most affected group of attributes. A list of 44 delays attributes were distributed in 8 groups and presented through an online questionnaire portal in order to reach local and international participants. A total of 101 completed responses were collected and analyzed through different ranking approach and criteria decision-making method like Relative Importance Index (RII), Spearman’s Rank Correlation, T-Test and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). As a result, the analysis of AHP concluded that “Low level of consultant experience” and “Delays related to Contractor Capabilities” were the most attribute factor and group which delay the construction of sports facility.
