Decathlon was established in 1976, with the first store located near Lille, France. Since then Decathlon has grown into a global business, present in over 55 countries, with more than 1,500 stores worldwide.
Decathlon UK opened its first store in Surrey Quays, London in 1999 and has since developed into a full omnichannel shopping experience, including 45 purpose-built stores, website and Click & Collect services.
Decathlon’s mission is simple: to make sport accessible for the many. The company designs and creates products that offer the best technical performance at the lowest possible price, and team-mates are always on hand - either in-store or online - to help total beginners or seasoned pros choose the right kit to get active, whatever their sport or activity. Decathlon’s playground offers over 70 sports under one roof and brings people together: families, friends and strangers alike to share their passion for sport and have fun together.
