"Today marks a new, distinct chapter in the growth story of JD as we set our plans to become the leading global sports-fashion powerhouse. Building on our strong existing position and attractive long-term market dynamics, we see significant growth opportunities ahead by expanding JD internationally, notably in North America and Europe", commented Régis Schultz, CEO of JD Sports, at the Capital Markets Event held on 2nd of February.
