Open, arid, unbuilt spaces by roadside, in neighborhoods and urban areas are of hidden urban areas that despite numerous potential, they are left unused. Due to lack of proper public sport places in the cities, by changing into open sports ground, these spaces can be a good opportunity to improve the quality of life, organization of urban spaces, neighborhood orientation, and development of public services and welfare. Although transforming the urban non-spaces into spaces to dynamic sports spaces has happened in some cities based on article 110 of the Municipal Act, the neglect of social and economic structure of consumer groups, non-functional hierarchy of sports grounds, lack of attention to the texture and the absence of clear standards and criteria to choose the kind of exercise in proportion to the size and orientation of user groups have reducing the productivity of the land. The aim of this study is to identify criteria to categorize temporary outdoor sports grounds and classify them according to the criteria extracted. The method of study is based on field research methods and techniques of hierarchical analysis, fuzzy logic models and integrating layers. The results of this research is to develop different standards in terms of social, economic, physical, environmental and management issues about grouping these lands to increase productivity and efficiency. The criteria are determined in terms of location analysis, evaluation and grouping of land.
