le coq sportif


le coq sportif’s story starts in 1882 with the opening of a petite hosiery store in Romilly-sur-Seine, France, in a part of the Champagne region called the Aube.

Emile Camuset, the man who opened that store, loved sports with a fierce passion. When he started making sports jersey in his small workshop, he probably never dreamed that, 130 years later, le coq sportif would become one of the world’s most prestigious brands, renowned for its clothing, footwear and sporting equipment.

The brand grew up shoulder to shoulder with professional sports in France. By 1920 it had become the official supplier to France’s professional football, rugby, basketball and track and field associations and has since gone on to sponsor the pinnacle of cycle sport, the Tour de France, as well as the some of the greatest footballers, tennis players and athletes.

le coq sportif’s products have a simple, timeless quality that is a fundamental part of the brand’s heritage.
