Adidas and Decathlon, leaders in Spanish sports retail

Adidas is the leading brand of sports fashion.

Meanwhile, in 2019, Decathlon's Spanish subsidiary had a sales value of more than 1.7 billion euros, even though the number of sporting goods stores is decreasing. But the company weathered the storm thanks to its online channel, which it is the leading sporting goods online shop in Spain, followed by Adidas.

Running, a trend in Spain
