ADSports is a leading sportswear brand in the UK which has over 540 stores. The company was set up in 1988 and has grown organically during that time.
ADSports sponsors a large number of successful sporting teams and leading sporting events and through these sponsorships it has established itself as a premium sportswear brand. ADSports, in recent years, has attempted to develop its brand even further by capitalising on the growing fitness market in the UK.
To capitalise on this market, ADSports opened 100 gyms in 2019 where members pay for their membership annually and – although initial membership and net profit was high – it has struggled since the Covid-19 pandemic to return a profit from its gym operation.
ADSports have called in a leading business consultancy firm to overlook their gym operation.
