Based on the data of the 6th national field census, taking the number of sports fields in 31 provinces, cities and autonomous regions of our country as the object, this paper analyzes and discusses the spatial characteristics of the distribution of sports fields in our country by using the spatial measurement method. The OLS estimation, SLM estimation and SEM estimation of the number of sports fields and related influencing factors are established. After the spatial dependence test, the research shows that the spatial econometric regression model is better than the ordinary least squares regression model, which shows that the estimation method considering spatial dependence can better represent the spatial distribution characteristics of sports fields in China.  SEM was confirmed to be the best model by correlation discrimination test,and corrected the OLS model's general underestimation of the government's influence on the distribution of sports fields.
