Ethiosports is a US-based Media Service promoting Ethiopia as a great destination for Adventure, Culture & Heritage, Sports, Travel & Tourism.

When Ethiosports was first created back in 1999, its primary function was to provide news and information on Ethiopian soccer and athletics. But after more than a decade of valuable service, we felt that it was time to expand our service to Travel & Tourism. 

Our Mission

  • To connect & promote the US and Ethiopia in Adventure, Lifestyle, Sports, Travel & Tourism.
  • To serve as an information forum for adventure travelers to share their experience in Ethiopia and in the US.
  • To create a platform for travel & tourism-related companies and others to advertise their products & services.
  • To bring together entrepreneurs and investors to discuss tourism-related investment opportunities in the country. 

Ethiopian Athletes

Although soccer remains the most popular sport in Ethiopia, the country is known by the rest of the world as home to some for greatest long distance runners, including legendary Abebe Bikila, who put the country on the athletics map of the world when he won the 1960 Rome Olympics’ marathon barefoot. Mamo Wolde and Miruts Yifter followed in his footsteps as did many others such as Haile Gebrselassie, Kenenisa Bekele, Tirunesh Dibaba, Meseret Defar, etc….

High Altitude Training

Ethiopia, together with Kenya, is a power in long distance running in the world. While no one can dispute that Ethiopian athletes excel in international competitions because of their hard work, dedication and discipline, training at high altitude gives them a much needed edge. International athletes have also taken notice and are now frequent visitors of Haile Gebrselassie’s Yaya Village and Kenenisa Bekele’s in Sendafa . 

Ethiopia’s Tourism Potential

Ethiopia is a country blessed with great history and culture. Furthermore, the country has beautiful landscapes, which are suitable for a range of outdoor activities, including walking, fishing, bird watching, mountain and rock climbing, white-water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, trekking, caving and paragliding. However the link between tourism and sport activities in the country has not been adequately promoted.  

1 million Ethiopians in the US

The number of Ethiopians & Ethiopian-Americans living and working in the United States is estimated to be around 1 million. They often travel to Ethiopia and within the US. Ethiosports will serve as a great platform for travel and tourism-related companies to explore this niche & untapped market.
