Sports tourism in the Gulf region started to flourish where several international sports events were secured for the next decade. This reflects on the number of sports facilities, their energy consumption, and CO2 emissions mainly due to the indoor and outdoor air conditioning requirements. This paper aims to emphasize the significance of energy management in sports facilities especially for hot climatic regions. It presents a review of the works for optimizing building management systems’ (BMSs) operation, anomaly diagnosis, and mitigation. It indicates their application scarcity for sports facilities compared to other types of buildings, and for the regions with hot and humid weather conditions compared to amiable and cold ones, in addition to the considerations for optimizing BMSs of sports facilities based on their type and regional location. An overview is presented of the impacts related to the security and the reliable operation of the BMSs of sports facilities given the advancements in the deployed technologies
