Quality products at a fair price.
By designing, producing, and distributing our own products, as well as selling them in large quantities, we can save a lot. At Décathlon, the formula is simple: prices are closely linked to the actual cost of production. So, we don’t hesitate to lower our profit margin so you can have access to sports equipment at the best possible value for the money.
Our staff: a long-term investment.
Sports accessibility wouldn’t be possible without our employees. That’s why we offer our employees fair salaries, excellent benefits, and allow them to grow professionally within a global company that pays attention to their needs. Visit our Career section.

Taking responsibility for our actions.
We pay attention to the impact we have on the rest of the world and on the community where we’re growing. We make conscious choices to build a better future for our planet. We’ve got several responsible consumption projects in the works.
A BIT OF HISTORY. OUR BEGINNINGS.
Décathlon came onto the scene with a new model for selling sporting goods.
It all began with seven sports fans and budding entrepreneurs who met in a parking lot in Englos, France to try to improve the way sporting goods and equipment were manufactured and sold. From this key moment when Michel Leclercq opened the very first store in Lille, France in 1976 until today’s international presence, our teams have been united in a common goal: make sports accessible to as many people as possible.
DESIGN: PEOPLE-CENTRED PASSION.
Each sport or group of sports is represented by Décathlon’s own Passion Brands. A committed team of athletes, designers, product managers, researchers, and engineers collaborate to design the best products for their sport. Today, several Passion Brands teams are tasked with imagining the future of their respective sports disciplines.
As a customer and member of the big Décathlon family, you can share your opinion about the products. This process is important for the brands and will never be taken lightly. A product rated 3 stars out of 5 will be removed from production for improvements.
Our company is committed to our customers and our team, as well as to our planet, so we can offer quality products that make sports accessible.
