Decathlon is a family-owned company founded in 1976. The organization has always been fueled by the belief that the best sports products should be accessible to everyone.

With more than 97,000 employees, this family-owned group is reinventing the way consumers approach sports. Their method is based on an integrated model, controlling all the stages of their product’s life—from research and development to sales, including design, production, and logistics.
With more than 11 billion euros in revenue by 2020, the group is committed to continuous innovation in their products, the services offered in stores, and the development of cross channel, and customer satisfaction.
