The aim of this study was to introduce a new idea in site selection of the sport facilities. At first, the studied domain was categorized into 6 incoherent scales by AHP method and based on 12 criteria including different urban land uses and elements. The lands with the maximum value and the area of 1502965.8 m2 comprised 6% of the whole domain. Then, after teaming up on the research project, the area with the highest value was examined by field estimation and 5 plots of land (A, B, C, D, and E) were considered as the inputs of discrete state. These plots were the lands which were capable of being considered and researched to build new sports facilities in the real world and in terms of other criteria. To prioritize these inputs, four methods of TOPSIS, ELECTRE, SAW and Taxonomy were used whose common criteria were the price, geomorphic conditions, ability to get possessory right, present use value, population, accessibility and distance from nearby sports facilities. Finally, the results from abovementioned methods were gathered and analyzed by POSET technique and it was determined that the piece of land C was the best place to build a new sport facility.
