Champion was born in 1919 in Rochester, NY-USA. From then on it began to manufacture sports clothes (sweatshirts and pants) of high quality for the universities of the country.
Champion applied emblematic designs on his garments, which still remain today. His star garment is the “sweatshirt with hood”, by something it is said that it was Champion who invented this garment.
In a short time the brand patented the unmistakable vertical “strips” that apply to the laterals of sweatshirts and pants, so that the fabric does not shrink. Later they also patented reversible fabric and breathable fabric that are used today in sports shirts and garments.
