    Goals / Remit

    Founded in 1960, FESI (Federation of the European Sporting Goods Industry) represents the interests of approximately 1.800 sporting goods manufacturers and retailers (85% of the European market) through its National Sporting Goods Industry Federations and its directly affiliated Member companies. 70-75% of FESI's membership is made up of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises. In total, the European Sporting Goods Industry employs over 700.000 EU citizens and has an annual turnover of some €81 billion. Today, we can say that a considerable number of national laws originates at European level and that these regulations may impact all our member companies’ financial results, and strategic plans and direction. Providing valuable inputs and industry views to the EU institutions before final laws are adopted is therefore crucial.
