The aim of the article is to investigate sports diplomacy between Iran and the United States, which is an example of sports diplomacy directed at bringing unfriendly states closer. The two countries do not have diplomatic relations and their mutual attitude can be described as hostile. At the end of the XXth Century they started to establish sports exchanges aimed at supporting political rapprochement. The article is aimed to verify a hypothesis stating that the significance of sports diplomacy between Iran and the United States was secondary and it would not be possible without the political will. Also an attempt to analyze the selection of sports disciplines used for sports diplomacy between the two states concerning their positive or negative effect on its efficiency has been made.
