Pembrokeshire council has agreed to pay £50,000 as part of a deal to host an annual triathlon event.
Ironman Wales, a local version of the Ironman triathlon, was held in Pembrokeshire between 2011 and 2016.
The council estimates the event contributes around £3.7m to the local economy.
The council has now decided to sign a new Host Sponsorship Agreement for another five years at the cost of £50,000 per year.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has agreed to pay £16,000 per annum towards this, and Tenby Town Council has committed £5,000 for the first year.
